Lets hope for better weather for the next one!

Up coming match Sunday 19th October

We have a match this coming Sunday which will be organised by Craig Willis and Richard Saxby. 

Times may vary from those advertised dependant on the condition of the beach.

Don’t forget there is a club meeting at the Oak Tree Arena on Thursday 16th October.

We now have a BBOSAA  FaceBook page for use by club members only.

You will need to type in Burnham Boat Owners Sea Angling Association to find it.

At the moment it is set up as a closed group so in the first instance you will need to send me (Stephen Saxby),  a friend request so I can verify that you are a club member and then you will be invited in. This means you can write up your own catch reports, post your own pictures and keep in touch with each in other easily.

Portsmouth 11th October 20014

DSCN0974We fished Portsmouth Saturday on Valkyrie IIV. A very tough start on a windy day as we drifted for bass on the banks with only the two bass for our efforts, one each for Dicky and Dad.One of the lads did manage to catch a conger of about 6lbs on a redgill on the drift!! Never been done before on Valkyrie Charters.




As the tide slowed we dropped anchor to try for blonde rays and started to catch straight away with dogfish and bullhuss and a few more congers. DSCN0977


The best bulhuss went around 14lbs and the best eel was around 45lbs. DSCN0983









Dicky had the only ray which turned out be an nicely coloured undulate ray. Soon the tide was to strong for bottom fishing so we had to up anchor and go back on the drift for bass but, that was it, no more fish.

Glen tried really hard to find us fish drifting lots of banks and burning loads of fuel but no joy. Just one of them days. Dad was sick, broke a rod and lost his hat!!

And me…..just one dogfish all day!!
