01 July 2015

The Lure Pembrokeshire Fishing Festival succesfully took place over sunny and calm waters in and around Milford Haven.

The inaugural fishing event, hosted by Neyland Yacht Haven, featured three competition categories over the weekend:

  1. Boat fishing
  2. Shore fishing
  3. Kayak Fishing

All three categories also ran Junior competitions.

Once registered, fishing was underway with competitors only permitted to use man-made lures. Fish soon took the skillfully-made lures with Bass, Cod, Pollack and Mackeral all caught. There were even a few unusual and rarely caught fish including a Shany and a Rock Goby.

 

Full results to be published soon

 

The event also held a charity raffle in support of Wales Air Ambulance and The Dale Play Area Association.

Well done to Jimmy Lemon who organised the event with further thanks to all the sponsors including Lure Lounge, White Water Consultancy, Boat Fishing Monthly, Fish 4 Bass, Dexter Lures, Alderney Angling, Red Gill, Pirate Boats, Basslures, Fly Shack, Tees R Us, Eddystone Eels, Black Minnow, Duel, Strikepro, TT Lures, Z-Man, Fiiish Uk and Raven Trading.
