A fishing competition with bite has seen winners snap up prizes at Cadgwith Cove.

The annual Sharky Cup contest, named in honour of Sharky Stevens, has taken place once again, for the 15th year.

Competitors were invited to fish the waters in and around the cove from noon, with the final weigh in taking place at 6pm.

The aim was to catch as many different species of fish within that time, and in the event of a tie the final result was dependent on all of the species being weighed.

The junior section was won this year by Joshua Tattersall, who landed six different types of fish, with Matthew Bray second with five species, narrowly beating third placed Matilda Phillips, who also landed five species but these were of a lesser weight.

The adult section was won by Len Carter with a competition record of 11 varieties of fish. Father and son duo Martin and Peter Faulkner took second and third place respectively.

Sarah Stephens, one of the event organisers, thanked all of the |competitors and everyone who helped during the day, plus The Last Stop Fishing Shop for the donation of prizes and Sharky Stevens himself, who also donated and presented the prizes in |addition to giving the popular annual event its name.
