Hounds and Rays On Lancashire Coast

by Jordan Russell

lancashire-news-logoFleetwood and District Angling Club found the fishing very slow at the Miner’s Home during their latest club match. Fifteen anglers fished but only five caught fish.

The water did look like it may have been affected by an algae bloom.

The match was decided in the last minute of the match, when Trevor had a bite resulting in a 48cm bass. This pushed Ray into second place even though he had a fish on his final cast.


  1. Trevor Barnett 1 bass 1 flounder for 68 points

  2. Ray Rodger 2 flounder for 31 points

  3. Ian Hewitt 1 flounder 1 plaice 1 turbot for 16 points

  4. Dave Wilson 1 flounder for 4″ points

  5. Ken Forrest 1 flounder for 2 points

Next Sunday’s match is at Stanah with fishing from 3.30pm to 6.30pm. This match is for the aggregate points of the anglers two best flounder.

Dave Brown fished the flood tide and found it quiet to start with but as soon as it started flooding the dogfish started feeding. After an hour of dogs he had a couple of plaice, one took worm but the other swallowed a full prawn and squid bait on a 3/0 hook. Soon after that he had a hound and then it was back to dogfish and scrawny whiting.
