From Dan Ward - Junior Leader 26/08/2014
I’m pleased to say the Seaton junior shore open was a success! The weather forecast wasn’t the best which may have put some off, but the rain stayed away and 7 kids turned up wanting to fish. Beer juniors welcomed 2 new members:- Max Nevel and Oliver Rodger. Fish caught were all mackerel and 1 new beer Junior Record Plaice of 12.6oz for Indi ward. Winners were:-
1st. Will Lancaster representing Honiton SAC fishing in his first competition - well done Will.
2nd. New beer member Max Nevel also fishing in his first competition.
3rd. Beer member Indi ward.
We had enough prizes for all the kids so everyone went home smiling thanks to the support of our generous sponsors Seaton Angling Centre and Ledger Scaffolding Ltd.
The fish caught in this comp count towards the Junior Summer Series so points awarded for this are:- Indi ward 13, Tori ward 11, Max Nevel 11, Oliver Rodger 3. See gallery for pictures of these fish.
From Dave Graham 06/08/2014
Well I will call this a hard days night. We signed on at Beer Football club at 4pm and all went various ways for a hard night fishing the wind was very fresh from the southwest but to make thing worse after all the hot weather it kills some seaweed and we had that horrid green stuff on our lines all night. The fish were hard to come by, mainly Dogs but DG and Dan did manage to catch a Dover Sole each. At the 8am weigh in at Seaton Tackle shop Paul Driver, on his first shore comp this year had the best specimen with a Dogfish of 1lb 14.5 ozs. After a bacon butty and a cup of tea it was off to bed of a few hours sleep.
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 PDF (opens in another window) or Word.
Our sponsors are all from the area and we are grateful for their support and are pleased to be associated with them – Most of our members may be found to be supporting these local businesses as a matter of course, please feel free to click on the sponsors logo and find out more about them, or visit their page on our site.
