News - updated 17th May 2015

From Matt Cornell 17/05/2015
With the Feb, March and April boat comps cancelled due to bad weather it was great to finally get out and catch some fish. Species included mackeral, pout, dogfish, ballans, cuckoos, pollack, bullhuss and a nice cod for Carl. We ended the day drifting for plaice and managed 16 between the boats which was nice to see.
Top score on the day was Matt Cornell 258.72,  2nd Ross Lambet 203.72, 3rd Dave Graham 191.12. Best specimen was John Cornell with a Dogfish 2lbs 4ozs (75%)

From Andy Osborne 26/04/2015
Last night saw the April leg of the senior shore league, it was booked to be fished at Hive beach Bruton Bradstock. Upon arriving at the beach it was soon apparent that every club other club in England must have had the same idea as it was rammed with different clubs all fishing the same location. At this point it was decided to turn the match into a any area rover match weighing in at Charlie's yard Beer at 0030.
Some headed to Ferrybridge others fished Charmouth, Seatown and Seaton.
The best fishing was had by Scott Copper fishing Charmouth managing to find Bull huss, Conger Eel, Dogfish, poor cod and Rockling for a total of 27 points.
Second place was taken by Stephen Andrews with dogfish, pout and Smooth hound from Seaton and a points total of 9.
The next match is Cogdon on 9th May.

About us

BDSAA is a small local club based at Beer Social Club offering an informal focus for Sea Anglers in the area, we maintain a membership of about 40 people. We fish from both the shore and boat approximately once a month (next dates and venues on our “Fixtures page”). Primarily a species hunting club we concentrate our fishing to the greater Lyme Bay area in the main, but do venture out if a member has a particular wish to fish a specific venue. We regularly fish against other clubs, mainly those from East Devon i.e. Honiton and Lyme Regis, but would always welcome hosting a visiting club for a match. Check out our Cup Competitions. For Club record catches click here.

The club has been in existence since 1965 when it was simply known as the” Beer Fishing Club”, over the years it has kept to the same format of being informal, friendly and welcoming always of course maintaining it’s base in the beautiful picturesque village of Beer.

Our membership is drawn mainly from the Beer and Seaton area, however we do have members living as far a field as Taunton and Crewkerne in Somerset. Download a membership form in either Adobe Reader Adobe PDF (opens in another window) or Microsoft Word Word.
