2019-20 season
(Starting 1st Nov 2019) Listed with most recent first
You should be aware that, as your Publicity Officer, I am constrained by a directive from the committee to not publicise individual catches except as part of reporting competition results or in the case of Island or National records.
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
The published version often differs but this is out of my control.
 
13-9-20: Points per specimen comp

Excellent conditions saw 15 members sign on for the club’s points per specimen competition. With a limit of 5 fish of each eligible species to count, the emphasis was on catching a variety of species. No fish were required to be brought to the scales.

10 competitors recorded their points totals at the end.  

1st: Andy Ellis 40 points

2nd: Ray Ellis 34 points.

3rd:  Paul Hopkins 31 points

 

9-8-20: Bass comp
Comp cancelled due to adverse (but incorrect) forecasts.
 
12-7-20: Plaice comp

Excellent conditions of light breezes & a neap tide resulted in 23 anglers signing on for the BAC Plaice only competition.

In the interests of conservation, no more than two fish per competitor were accepted at the scales.

Ten competitors weighed in fish.

1st Phil Smith 3lb 9oz for a 2 fish bag.

2nd Ross Staplehurst 3lb 0oz for a 2 fish bag.

29-12-19: Cod & Whiting specimen comp

16 members signed on for Bembridge Angling Club’s Christmas Cod & Whiting competition.

Despite good calm weather and suitable water colour, very few fish were brought to the scales with only 6 members weighing in. Members reported good numbers of conger & dogfish but these were ineligible.  

Ray Ellis recorded the only Cod at 11lb 11ozs to take first place.

Andrew Ellis caught a Whiting of 2lb 4ozs for second place

Steve SImmonds recorded the only other Whiting to exceed 1 lb being 1lb 2ozs for third place.

 
17-11-19: Cod & Whiting specimen comp
The 22 anglers that entered were faced with an unpleasant NE breeze that produced a nasty short chop especially during the flood tide. Despite the poor water clarity being good for Cod fishing and plenty of Congers reported, only 1 Cod & 1 Whiting were brought to the scales. 1st Chris Rackett Cod 10 lbs = 27.68%. 2nd Steve Simmonds Whiting 1 lb 2 ozs = 23.68% which also took the sweep for the heaviest Whiting.
