All codling and coalfish taken came from either Roker or South Shields pier

What was very noticeable was that quite a few of the flounder had been caught in previous catch and release matches, by the previous scales man mark on them.

Those winners that didn’t stay for the presentation missed out on some great prizes rods/reels.
