NATIONAL SEA LEAGUE FINAL 2009 RESULTS

30.11.09

Measuring a fish before release

The 2009 National Sea League Final was fished by a total of 29 five man teams at Eastbourne over the weekend 21/22 November.

Disappointedly the second day was lost due to adverse weather conditions, but Saturday saw a very interesting and competitive match, with plenty of whiting, bass and flounder to target.

The match was dominated by the Ipswich based team IMAX Team Porters who managed 3 zone wins, a second and a fourth to give them a total points score of only 9 points.

This put them well clear of another Anglian club, Eagles who came second with 22 points.

Local team Zziplex Match Team took third place with 40 points.

More than £8,000 in prize money and pools was paid out at the event.  The winning team took away over £2,500, 2nd £1,550, 3rd £1,100, 4th £920, 5th £500.

The match was fished to SAMF’s catch and return rules, with each fish being measured and recorded before being returned alive to the water. A conversion chart then converts the length into weight points.

Top angler of the day was Alan Price of North Wales Ultima who amassed 753 weight points, equivalent to 15lbs 11 oz.

The weather forecast for the Sunday had been bad all week, so in the interest of fairness the organisers put it to team captains that if the met office forecast was to exceed mean wind speeds of 35-40mph and gusts of 45 – 55mph then conditions would be deemed unsafe and the match cancelled. Met forecast for Sunday was mean of 40mph and gusts of 68mph. In the event the forecast proved to be very accurate and anyone who stayed in Eastbourne during the day could see the justification.

Full results are below.
