From Dan Ward, Junior Leader 19/07/2015
Max Nevell has set the bdsaa club record for gilt head bream! An achievement no club member has managed in our 53yr history so not only a junior record but earning himself a place in the coveted all time historical records too - well done Max. The fish weighed in at 1lb 15oz and was caught on Seaton beach in area C.
From Dan Ward, Junior Leader 16/07/2015
This months junior competition on Sunday 12th was fished at Branscombe. 3 juniors turned out to fish and 4 ballan wrasse were caught. It was hard work with a choppy sea and a bit of weed about but sheltered from the wind. All the fish came from the eastern end of the beach though a few good bites were missed up the western end. Indi Ward took first place and a pack of rig winders given by Chris at the Seaton angling/kayak centre. Tristan Cooper and Oliver Rodger were both tied on second place.
Saturday night saw the June round of the Senior shore championship this was also the Shore leg of the Lively lady against Honiton, well the sun was out and the turn out was good from both sides.
Beer won the match 431.3 V 394.68.
Plenty of variety in fish were caught including: Bullhuss, Dogfish, Smoothounds, Conger eel, 3 Bearded Rockling, Ballan Wrasse, Pout and Sole. The results were:
1st A. Osborne 50 points; 2nd D. Herbert 39 points; 3rd D. Graham 29 Points
Turned out to be a night for big fish with 3 area "C"club records being broken. Andy Osborne took the Smoothound record with a hound of 7lbs 2oz (93.75%) Darren Herbert took the Ballan Wrasse record with a wrasse of 3lbs 5½oz (66.89%).
Archie Sweetland took the Junior Shore record for smoothound with a hound (almost as big in length as Archie himself) of 5lbs 15oz (74.21%).
Darren Also landed a 3 Bearded Rocking of 1lbs 10½oz to claim a specimen with 110.41%.
Well done to all involved on such a great nights fishing and a big thanks to all the anglers of Honiton Sea Angling Club for such a close run match.
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.
