Combe Martin SAC – Winter Fishing Weekend Report

posted in: Sea Angling, Sidebar | 0

Combe Martin Sea Angling Clubs Six Hour Rover saw ten members venture out onto North Devon’s coast line as a brisk west North West breeze blew up the Bristol Channel. Fishing has not been easy over recent weeks with the water clear after a period of calm weather. Dogfish and small conger have been abundant all along the coastline with just the occasional better fish showing. A short competition like this is useful in pulling together a group of anglers fishing an area of the coast and seeing what results.

Kevin Legge secured the top two places in the competition with fish that were only moderate specimens to Kevin who sets the bar high in his constant quest for specimen fish. A dogfish of 2lb 5oz and a bull huss of 7lb 1oz were enough to take the money. Ross Stanway caught a pleasing rockling of 1lb 31/2oz for third and Mark Tossell a good whiting of 151/2oz.

Combe Martin SAC member John Shapland is a very keen mullet angler and targets the species all year round. The mullet was once considered a fish of the summer months but recent years have seen the species caught in every month of the year. Johns latest catch is exceptional for January catching five over three pounds in two days fishing. The fish weighed 3lb 8oz, 3lb 8.5oz, 3lb 9oz, 3lb 10oz and 4lb 4oz.

Promising ray

posted in: Sea Angling, Sidebar | 0

Combe Martin SAC hold their annual Putsborough Open on Saturday May 6th and if the weather holds prospects are excellent with several ray already caught from the venue in recent weeks. Dan Miles Redmore has enjoyed success at the venue over recent tides with his latest session bringing seven small eyed ray to 6lb in eleven casts along with four dogfish. So literally a fish a cast!

Last year produced ray into double figures and previous years have seen the odd surprise with tope, conger and bull huss.
