2017 Summer & Autumn species competitions

Our Pure Fishing General Fishing species days are a fun time catching different fish from the array of species available whilst at anchor or drifting around our coastline.

Whereas these days are classed as a competition, they’re not quite that. They are no different to a normal day out. You simply come along and have a fun time catching with us, while we simply record your catch, each fish scoring a set amount of points each, with bonus points for each different species.

Catch the most points over the two days and win. The points will be awarded as below

  • 1 point   – dogfish, whiting
  • 2 points – pouting, mini species, any fish not listed
  • 3 points – all gurnard, dab, plaice
  • 4 points – all wrasse, pollack, coalfish
  • 5 points – bull huss, conger, smoothhound, spurdog, tope
  • 6 points – each species

Sandeel and mackerel are excluded from points, but will count for species points

If there is a tie on points, the most species between the tying point scorers will win. If still tied the most 5 point fish will win. If still tied the most 4 point fish will win.

One specific rod & reel combo is available each month, there are two chances per month to win as follows 

All the rods and reels have been chosen to maximise your angling experience.
