Dungeness Whit(ing) Out

Headed to Dungeness for my first ever session last weekend. I was meeting up with a few off the KSFF forum members for a session there. We met at about 18:30 and were set up by 19:30. On the first cast the chance of a blank had gone and I pulled in 3 whiting on the 3 hook flapper i was using.

I had Dunge black lug, king rag, mackerel, squid and common lug for bait but no matter what I put out I always ended up with at least one whiting per cast.

Dave managed to pull in a doggy but that was the only different species caught.

At the end of the session I had had 53 Whiting, Dave had 39, all under-sized for me although a few were close. Was a lot of fun.

We fished until about 02:40 and then packed up and headed home

Until next time…

About Chris Ainger

I have been working in IT since 1998 in the Public Housing Sector. I have worked with Citrix since 2003 in the days of Citrix Metaframe XP 1.0 FR2. Since then I have been through the processes of upgrading to Presentation Server 4.0 with a farm of around 150 servers. Since then I have helped create a farm of around 200 servers using XenApp 6.0 on VMware 4.1. This was a great experience which has only increased during the upgrades of the environment for out 2000+ users. All of our clients are the WYSE 10 series using ThinOS which I have helped configure for individual users from a central location making administration very simple. I gained my CCA qualification in XenApp 6.0 in January 2012. I am a big fan of SolarWinds also, which is a great monitoring tool. It is very versatile with a small footprint of resource usage on the targeted devices. I am currently designing the interfaces for the IT department for daily use and also a Service view for the Support Desk Team. I am also a keen fisherman, having restarted again after 20 years. I set myself yearly targets to try to complete which makes this more interesting and belong to several forums of other like-minded folks. I, on occasion, fly fish for trout as a treat once in a while or when the fridge gets empty and also sea fly fish for bass and mullet. My main area is sea fishing from either beach, harbour wall or pier. There are so many species of fish to catch around the UK that you can mix up the locations to try something different.
