Yacht Haven Quay played host to Plymouth's inaugural Meet & Fish competition in partnership with the Sea Angling Classic, with astonishing participation making it the largest fishing competition ever hosted in Plymouth.

For 2024, the Sea Angling Classic setup regional events around the UK to bring budding anglers together in fun, friendly catch-and-release competition days. Yacht Haven Quay Plymouth welcomed the event with over 20 boats participating!

After breakfast and a Skipper's Briefing by Ross Honey, teams took to the water aiming for bass, pollock and wrasse. The choppy seas in the morning eventually calmed down providing a beautiful, albeit crisp, spring day on the water!

Anglers returned to Yacht Haven Quay for après fishing including a warming Chilli from The Mess Room cafe and prize giving. 

The standout winners were:

  • Martyn James with the biggest bass measuring 48cm
  • Leo winning best Junior
  • Mark White with the biggest wrasse measuring 42cm
  • Darren Hexter with the biggest pollock measuring 82cm

Thank you to Lowrance, YETI, Exposure Marine, PENN Fishing, RAILBLAZA, and Crewsaver for donating prizes and to the Sea Angling Classic team for their organisation!
