Shore Competitions - fished one competition per month, throughout the week and weekends. Shore competitions are free to enter except for the optional pools - optional pools are £1 each for the best round fish, best flat fish and this is given out on the night and there is an optional pool for the best specimen of 80%, this will roll over until won.

A weigh and return scheme is adopted on all shore competitions and we have club certificated scales on the beach and we run a measure and return league to encourage our anglers to replenish fish stocks for sustainability.
