Subject - Latest Information

The next competition will be the Mackerel & Most Species. The new date for this should make it happen on the weekend of 10th/11th August.

PS. Due to no Conger Eels being weighed in during the recent Conger Comp, you will all have another chance to catch one. It will be re-run alongside the Bream & Wrasse Comp on the weekend of 14th/15th September.
Best of luck to you all.

Accumulator Positions - The second round of the Accumulator Competition was fished over the weekend of May 11th/12th for Flatfish.
Despite it being a fine weekend the sea was messy with an algae bloom, (May Water), and only two Plaice were recorded. The heaviest, at 1lb-12.2oz, was caught by John Astill, and worth 10pts on the Accumulator. The other was caught by Steve Cowell, and worth 9pts.
After two comps the positions are as follows;

Subject - EDSFC vs SFCC Interclub Results

The annual Interclub Competition against Exmouth Deep Sea Fishing Club took place on Sunday 14th July. I'm pleased to say that the John Hall Trophy was once again won by SFCC !!
Despite being heavily out-numbered by the opposition due to holidays, mechanical problems, and other commitments, we managed to out fish EDSFC.

Exmouth's best fish were caught by Peter Cloak, with a 2lb-3oz Dogfish, 72.9% Specimen, and Dave Newman with a 2lb-13oz Ballan Wrasse, 56.2% Specimen. Total 129.1%. SFCC's best two were caught by Steve Lomas, with a fine Bull Huss, weighing 10lb-3.1oz, 84.9% Specimen, and me, with a 3lb-10oz Ballan Wrasse, 72.5% Specimen. Total 157.4%.
Well done to Geoff Munson, who on his first trip targeting Wrasse caught eight, the best weighing 3lb-6oz. And to Carolyn Whiting who caught several Wrasse, again with the best scaling 3lb-6oz. All the fish were weighed on board and returned to fight another day.

The fishing comp was followed by a Social Evening at Exe Sailing Club, where we were treated to Fish, Chips & Peas, followed by the trophy presentation. We were then entertained with a Roulette Table, where I'm also pleased to say we won too. Well done Pauline Harris.

On behalf of SFCC I would like to thank Gareth Awbrey and his team, and also Exe Sailing Club, for putting on a lovely evening for us all. Thanks to Russ as well, for getting us across and back safely on the Water Taxi.

Mike Whiting, Fishing Secretary.

Subject - 2019 Interclub Fishing Competition
SFCC vs EDSFC

Hi everyone
Sunday 14th July is the date for our annual fishing competition against Exmouth Deep Sea Fishing Club.
As always this is hard fought competition, and we can't allow Exmouth to walk away with the trophy!!

The team with the best two combined specimen fish percentages will be pronounced as the winners. Fish species and weight must be passed to me by 5.30pm, at the latest.

After the match EDSFC will be hosting a social evening in the Exmouth Sailing Club, which is well worth a visit if you've not been there before. There, we will be treated to fresh Fish, Chips & Mushy Peas, supplied by Krispies Fish n Chip shop. Bar opens at 6.45, with food served at 7.15.

There will be a Roulette table in the club for your entertainment, with a prize at the end of the night.

You do not have to fish the competition to attend the social evening, but we need as many as possible fishing to stand a chance of retaining the trophy.

I need to know if you will be attending the social evening by Sunday 7th July, so I can inform EDSFC how many to cater for. Please let me know by text on my mobile 07837 371551.

If for any reason the competition is cancelled, the evening function will still go ahead.

Mike Whiting, Fishing Secretary.

Subject - Pollack Competition Results

The 2019 Pollack Competition got underway on the weekend of 20th / 21st April. What a glorious weekend, with plenty of sunshine, light winds, and a good tide.
Despite the conditions only five people recorded fish on the club fish board. But this was a better return compared to last season.
The top fish was caught on the Saturday by my better half, Carolyn. Fishing a 6in Red Gill on a local wreck, she tempted several Pollack, the best weighing 6lb 15.4oz.
Second was me. Fishing with a Storm Sandeel I caught just a couple of fish, the best was 5lb 14.6oz. Steve Cowell who was also fishing with us on the Saturday, caught lots of fish, mostly Pout, but was also fourth with a Pollack of 4lb 6.2oz.

Sunday saw the return of Kev Rouse. Fishing aboard John Astill's boat "J's Pleasure" on a local wreck, Kevin caught lots of Pollack, with the best being 4lb 12.6oz, (and good enough for third position). John was 5th with a fish of 3lb 11.8oz.

Well done to all those who took part.

Next Competition will be the Flatfish Comp on the weekend of 11th / 12th May.

Mike Whiting, Fishing Secretary.

Subject - Recreational Bass Fishing 2019

Bass Restrictions for 2019 From IFCA on 10th January 2019 Following the December Council of Fisheries meeting, the new TAC (Total Allowable Catch) regulations are expected to be published during January 2019. It is expected that a bag limit of one fish per day from the 1st April to 31st October 2019 will be implemented for recreational fishers. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? In the meantime, the current Bass regulations still apply. From the 1st January 2019, recreational fishers are not allowed to retain any Bass when fishing. Any Bass caught must be immediately returned to the water. The Minimum Conservation Reference Size (MCRS) for Bass remains at 42cm.
