Simon King proved that Orfordness is still one of the top sea angling venues in the region when he caught an 8lb 4oz cod during the first leg of the Mick Allen Shield, with the Braintree Sea Angling Club. His fish was one of 10 decent sized cod caught in a match that was fished on a warm and settled night, with a flat calm sea, and little tide run.
The calm conditions were also responsible for producing several sizeable dabs and dogfish, as well as large numbers of whiting, with around 40 being over the Club’s size limit of 30cm.
Simon King’s cod earned him first place, with a total weight of 16lb 5½oz, second spot went to a Club regular, Peter Costin, who had 4 codling along with whiting and dabs for a total weight of 14lb 14½oz. Barrie Senior, current holder of the Mick Allen Shield came third with 8lb 12oz, his catch also included 4 codling along with whiting and dab’s. The second leg will be fished on 13/14th of November, where it’s hoped that Orfordness will again produce specimen fish.

Limited spaces are still available for the Gerry Armstrong Memorial, open small boat match that is to be fished off Felixstowe on Sunday 28th November. Full details are available on the Club’s website at or by contacting Les Fitch on 01376 347882 after 7pm
