The Lancashire sea fishing has been quite prolific this week with good numbers of rays, dogfish, bass, plaice and the odd sole and turbot off the Gynn Wall. Night time is still the best by far and no reports on low water fishing but I’m sure that would be your best possible chance on the rough ground for a decent cod. Live yellow tails, ragworm and squid have been the best bait this week.
Leyland and District Sea Angling Club fished this week’s match on the Mersey.
- Fred Howard – 27 fish and 158 points
- Norman Pilkington – 4 fish and 138 points
- Peter Pilkington – 14 fish and 126 points
- Stuart Pilkington – 4 fish and 109 points
- Brian Nixon – 79cm and 15 fish
Stuart also had the biggest fish, a thornback ray with a wingspan of 50cm
Well done to the 10 members. The golden peg was not won. Thanks to Jordan at Bispham Angling once again for the quality bait.
Six species were caught; ray, dogfish, plaice, sole, whiting and rockling. All fish landed were returned.
Fleetwood and District Angling Club had their latest match at Marine Beach.
After the strong breeze of the last two days, and some codling getting caught it looked very promising. There was still an onshore breeze, although a bit more would have been ideal. The bright sunshine did not do the anglers any favours.
Unfortunately not a single codling was caught,although a coalie managed to find the hook of Phil Lamb. Other fish caught were bass, flounder, plaice and eels.
Until the last few minutes it looked like Tony Baxter was on for a win with his four plaice then Dave Brown had a good bite and reeled in a 53 cm bass to give him the win.
Congratulations to Dave on his win today, for the rest of us it was hard work to get a bite. Twenty one anglers fished today.
