The weather has continued to affect sea angling along the Lancashire coast. However, there are still plenty of fish about when anglers get out in the gaps in the weather.
Whiting and dogfish along with rays are the predominant species at moment and high water after dark is definitely producing more fish.
Fleetwood and District Angling Club fished Beach Road last Sunday and fishing was a little disappointing given the good conditions. 18 anglers fished the event and almost all caught. The fishing was mainly whiting with odd dogfish and single hound.
As is normal with whiting some of the bays held fish, while others were devoid of any numbers. Congratulations to winner Andy Denton who had the smoothhound in his winning bag. Andy fished at the end of the car park on Beach Road, while second place David Bayliss fished at the opposite end of the venue up towards Dronsfield Road.
Fish baits, or fish tipped worm worked the best.
1st – Andy Denton 3 dogs 1 whiting 1 smoothhound for 98.5 points wins £43
2nd – David Bayliss 3 dogs 6 whiting for 85 points wins £29
