Codling surface as seas settle after storm; SEA SCENE.

MOUNTAINOUS seas stirred the fish up earlier this week and, when the waters began to settle, codling were caught.

Fish to 4lb 8oz were taken at Skinningrove, while Runswick Bay and Kettleness also produced codling.

Tomorrow's St Mary's match is a North Tees event, with boundaries of the North Gare and Steetley Pier.

There's a chance of codling in the kelp near the headland and the Heugh.

Flounder are likely to be found from the beach, though the heavy seas may have scattered them.

Fishing is from 3-7pm. Meet from 1.45 to 2pm in Hartlepool at the pilot jetty green light.

The club's latest match, at Roker Pier before this week's dramatic weather, was won by Russell Miller, with seven whiting for 3lb 4oz.

In an increasingly strong wind he caught on a range of baits including worm, crab and mackerel belly.

Andy Burton was runner-up with five whiting and a dab for 2lb 12oz. Darren Dalton came third with seven whiting for 2lb 10oz.

Terry Dalton caught the heaviest fish of the match, a whiting of 13oz.

THE popular Jim Maidens Memorial beach match will be held on Sunday, October 21.

The match regularly attracts over 50 anglers, and this year the top prize is a Penn Beachcaster rod supplied by Redcar Angling Centre.

The match will be fished from 5-8pm - register at the Ship Inn from 4-5pm - and entry is PS4 for adults, and PS2 for youngsters. There is a sweep.

The match will be fished from half-tide up, with boundaries of Agar's Gap to Huntcliffe, though the pier is out of bounds.

Proceeds of this and other events will be split between the Redcar Lifeboat and Great North Air Ambulance.
