Weather Restricts Fylde Sea Angling

by Jordan Russell

lancashire-news-logoWell it’s not been the best week for weather with mostly it being unfishable for sea fishing on the Lancashire coast. The people that have got out in the gaps in the weather have been catching though. So very short report again due to the lovely English weather!

Fleetwood and District Angling Club fished their latest match on Marine beach, where they had the wind on their backs and a much flatter sea.

17 anglers fished and the fishing was a bit disappointing, mostly small plaice and flounder with a couple of sole, pup tope, eel, and a smoothhound for Trevor Barnett.

Blackworm was the best bait for the plaice and crab for most of the others.

Very close result Ken Forrest just piping Dave Norton by a single point, due to a last cast double.


1st Ken Forrest 2 flounder 1 plaice 1 sole 1 eel for 55 points

2nd Dave Norton 7 plaice for 54

3rd Trevor Barnett 1flounder 1 smoothhound for 40 points

4th Hughie Porter 2 plaice 1 sole for 32 points

5th Andy Denton 2 plaice for 21 points

6th = Neil Porter 1 tope 1 plaice and David G Hutchinson 1 flounder for 16 points

7th Paul Smith 1 flounder for 11 points

8th Tony Baxter 1 plaice for 6 points

9th = John Foster 1 plaice, John Hodgson 1 tope and Peter Spike 2 flounder for 5 points

Trevor Barnett had the fish worth the most points a smoothhound of 60 cm worth 31 points. Next Sunday’s match is at Five-Bar Gate, Cleveleys with fishing from12.30 to 3.30pm.
