Small Tides And Weather Affect Lancashire Sea Fishing

by Jordan Russell

It has been a quieter week for Lancashire sea anglers out fishing due to the weather and small tides. But there have been some decent fish caught by the anglers who ventured out. Fleetwood has been very good for good size bass and cod.

Fleetwood and District Angling Club had a road trip out to Morecambe which proved disappointing, due to the weather and some members forgetting how to get out of Fleetwood, only eleven fished.

Fish were in short supply, only plaice and small whiting caught.

Dave Hutchinson (Blackpool) found the most fish having three plaice straight down from the car park. Dave Bancroft fishing near to him had a plaice and a whiting, most of the others had single fish.
