This year we were asked to run the fishing section of the 4 River Cottage catch and cook courses. Because the courses have 12 people on them we needed a venue that didn't depend too much on the tides, was easily accessible and only a short drive from River Cottage H.Q. We decided on Seaton beach for the first three courses, and fished directly in front of the Spot On cafe (Their bread and butter pudding is delicious!). We ended up with good mixed bags of fish on each session, which included Mackerel, Garfish, Gurnard and Bass. Most of the catches came on the popped up rigs, which wasn't surprising with the bright sun and mill pond like conditions. Yesterday's course however saw some much different weather. With light rain and strong South Westerly winds, we decided Seaton wasn't going to be ideal for 12 novice anglers! The decision was made to fish the Cannon wall in Lyme Regis, Where the Cobb would offer plenty of protection from the wind and waves. As it turned out, this was a great move, as we ended up with the best fishing session of the courses this year. The new anglers managed 9 species in the 4 hours, which consisted of Garfish, Mackerel, Bass, Whiting, Golden Grey Mullet, Tub Gurnard, Ballan Wrasse, Corkwing Wrasse, and a Shanny. Massive thanks to Simon Lippett for helping run the courses, and we are hoping to be providing the tuition on these River Cottage courses again in 2019. ... See MoreSee Less
We have been watching the weather closely all week and have decided to cancel the Lyme Regis species hunt on Sunday the 16th due to the winds, to say we are gutted is an under statement but we will look at different dates and definitely start organising next year can I ask that you please tag anyone you know who was thinking of fishing this event so there is no wasted journeys made
We are gearing up for a busy weekend. On Sunday LRSAC have a Junior shore match and also the first open kayak comp. If you are requiring any bait, please order it asap. Due to demand, we have also brought back our very popular "Marine Ground bait mix". it has already been pre mixed and has had the oils added. Simply just add water when ready to use. It works incredibly well for attracting Garfish, Mullet, and Bream, when fishing from the beach or the boat. ... See MoreSee Less
