Newcombe’s sea catch

Five Diss and Eye Sea Anglers travelled to West Mersea on Thursday to fish for the first of the year run of cod.

Leaving port at 7.30am, they travelled out to fish about four miles offshore.

The weather was fine but windy, fishing was slow to start with but as tide started to run, fish started to bite.

Total fish caught were eight cod, three dogfish and about 60 whiting.

The biggest and best fish of the day and the prize money went to Charndler Newcombe, age 13, from Tibenham.

Runners-up: Terry Newcombe (Bury), David Newcombe (Tibenham), Michael Thorndyke (Eye) and Keith Carter (Hoxne).
