This is primarily to avoid the chance of commercial fishermen exploiting the information for their own gain to the detriment of club members.
The reports shown below are as they were submitted for publication in the IW County Press

(Starting 1st Nov 2016) Listed with most recent first
|Plaice Comp 16th July|
|Bass Comp 2nd July|
Members of Bembridge Angling Club had been keenly looking forward to finally being legally allowed to retain just one Bass per day for the rest of 2017 when the club held a Bass only competition last weekend.
An acceptable, but far from perfect, forecast meant that only 18 competitors entered.
A strong north wind in the first few hours of the comp & an increasing west wind towards the end, restricted boats to marks relatively inshore and only 7 competitors brought fish to the weigh in.
Liam Smith maintained his recent good form by returning with a winning fish of 6 lbs 3 ½ ozs.
Martin Evemy was second with a 4 lbs 14 ozs fish and Martin Dye was third with a 4 lb 11½ oz fish.
The next scheduled competition is for Plaice on Sunday 16th July
|Points Comp 18th June|
|Eddy Salisbury comp 10th June: Cancelled due to bad forecast|
|Bream Comp 13th May: Cancelled due to bad forecast|
|Flatfish Comp 29th April: Removed from fixture list due to delayed boat lift.|
|Cod & Whiting Comp 31st December|
Despite the thick fog of the previous day, the 18 competitors enjoyed good visibility & calm conditions. In the interests of conservation, the competition was for the best single specimen of either species, both being prime eating fish.
Club chairman, Ross Staplehurst, opted to target Whiting & was rewarded with a competition winning specimen
Martin Dye’s Cod of 20 lbs 12 ozs was very narrowly beaten into second spot but additionally won him the optional sweep for the heaviest Cod.
Dave Peach was third with a Whiting of 2 lbs 4 ozs.
|Open Cod Comp: 11th December: See open results page|
