News - updated 16th October 2017

From Dave Graham 16/10/2017
Well done to Nigel, Mike and Les who all scored over 400pts with Nigel having the best fish of the day with a Red Gurnard of 1lb 4.5ozs 102.05% .The pairs have got new leaders Mike P and Nigel D knocking long time leaders Andy and Jo off top spot and down to 3rd with Garry and Les moving in to second. On the species Dave G is in the lead with 14 species Nigel 13 and Andy and Jo 12.

From Andy Osborne 27/09/2017
Last night was the September leg of the shore championship, with south-south east winds the sea had turned really dirty and this proved to be a factor in the fishing. 6 members fished with the best fishing coming from the rough grounds and the center section of the beach not producing (I don't think the presence of the seal that decided to take up residence right in front of the lads fishing there helped).
Dan Ward ran way with top spot in the night scoring 34 points, Second was Dave Foden with 17 and Darren Herbert took third spot with 15 points. Best fish went to Darren Herbert with a Thick lipped Mullet weighing 4lbs 1oz worth 95.58%. Last night was also the last match in the new summer series system:
Congratulations to Julian Driver on a storming return to the club in claiming the top spot with the best combined results for 4 out of the 6 summer matches.
1st Julian Driver 65 points, 2nd Wayne Burgess 54 points, 3rd Dan Ward 46 points.
All still to fish for with the last 3 matches counting towards the winter total and of course the overall shore championship.

About us

BDSAA is a small local club that meet at the Dolphin Hotel 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.

The Club has statements for Environment & Ecology, Future Assurance, Equal Opportunities and Young People & Safety.
