The Solway Vikings held their annual Auchenlarie Open Shore Angling Championship last Sunday, when 22 rods fished the match with boundaries from Balcary to Finnarts Bay.
Coming out on top with a bag weight of 18lb 09oz and winning the main pool prize and a holiday courtesy of Auchenlarie Holiday Park was Billy McGarva from Castle Douglas.
And taking the heavy fish prize was Paul McKie with a stunning bull huss weighing in at 11lb 06oz.
Meanwhile, Newton Stewart angler Dennis Marsh had a red letter day recently when he headed off to the Garlieston rock marks looking for a smoothhound or two. Using crab baits, Dennis landed a heart-thumping fish weighing in at 13lb 04oz.
