Our Pure Fishing General Fishing species days are a fun time catching many different species of fish 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 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 with a brand new rod OR reel.
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 – wrasse – ballan & cuckoo, , pollack, coalfish, codling
- 5 points – bull huss, conger, smoothhound, spurdog, tope
- 6 points – each species
Sandeel, mackerel and herring are excluded from points, but will count for species points
There are two days planned each month, and the angler with the most points from either day will be deemed the winner. 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.
