SATURDAY 16TH JULY
PORT ERIN BEACH 10AM
We want this year to be bigger and better! And yes there will be fantastic prizes up for grabs again, inluding the top prize of a fantastics fishing kayak.
On the 16th July, we are, again, going to hold the competition in Port Erin Bay. It has proved to be a fantastic venue for the event, starting with bacon butties in cafe next to the beach, and ending with a pint in the pub opposite the sea.
Inside the bay offers perfect shelter from most winds.
Only the worst conditions will prevent us from venturing out from the bay.
The bay consists of mainly clean ground with patches of kelp dotted about. The rocky cliffs offers excellent fishing for rough bottom loving species.
If you plan to venture out of the bay it offers deeper, more tidal waters, which offer a wide variety of species
Because the area has such a variety of species, this years completion will be a species hunt.
Simply photograph your catch and release.
10 species of fish should be easily caught, with Pollack, Coalfish, Codling, Whiting, Poor Cod, Pouting, Ling, Ballen and Cuckoo Wrasse, Red Gurnard, Tub Gurnard, Grey Gurnard, Dogfish, Dab, Plaice, Mackerel, Launce and Herring are all very realistic targets, Tope, Bull Huss , Haddock and Dragonnet are also possible.
