Lancashire Sea Fishing Still Producing

by Jordan Russell

lancashire-news-logoThe Lancashire sea fishing is still very productive especially at night, whiting, dogfish and the odd ray and codling are being caught up and down the coast at low water and high water.

Fleetwood and District Sea Angling Club had their latest match between the coast watch tower and Dronsfield Road where due to rain washing off the peg markers the event was fished as a rover.

Just to debunk the myth that the last man on the beach is at a huge disadvantage the winner of today’s match was one of the last to pick his spot.

With the weather coming from the south east it out paid to the chances big catching a few codling and the main catch was whiting and a few dogfish.

No area proved much better than any other, there was fish for all the thirty competitors.

Sandeel seemed to be the top bait but black worm tipped with squid also worked well.

Congratulations to match winner Lee Thornton having four dogs in his catch greatly improved his points total.
