Thanks again to the 14 members supporting the match and to Jordan Russell of Bispham Sea Angling for the excellent bait.

David Brown fished two hours up and one down and had three nice codling and a couple of whiting on the flood, just whiting on the ebb, some good sized ones too. Fortunately all were hooked in the mouth all returned safely to live a little longer and grow bigger, lovely night too, light wind and just a little drizzle.

Fleetwood and District Angling Club members were out at Five Bar Gate where the fishing was passable rather than good.

Conditions were fair, but more swell than expected for a south-east wind. Not much weed and a cloudy sky. The anglers would of expected more whiting, but there was a good showing of dabs and an odd flounder, no cod unfortunately.

Twenty anglers fished and almost all caught fish. Black Worm was the most successful bait. The ebb seemed to fish slightly better than the flood.

Well done to Trevor Barnett who was top rod today.

Ian Bass enjoyed a super little session on the Wall 100 yards north of the slipway with Colin Lowe. First fish was a flounder exactly 1lb and then whiting and dabs. Plenty of knocks to keep them busy. Many thanks to Jordan and Liam at Bispham Angling for top class bait as usual.
