Our next match to take place at Egremont on Friday 25th October.
Meet by Guinea Gap Baths from 18.30, fishing 19.30 till 23.00
Format of the match to be each anglers longest flat and longest round added together, which will take precedence over a single flat or round fish even if the length of that one fish exceeds any flat and round combination.
Clubman Points and cash prizes on offer.
Based on the total length made up from each angler's best three fish or less, it was hoped that the dogfish would be putting in an appearance in numbers.
However, apart from a couple of dogs and two rays, it was small flounders and whiting that made up the majority of catches. Again, the fishing was relatively below par though on this occasion it was Jim Morris having a total of 134cm which included a ray of 83cm who took first place.
England international Bill Lindfield was second having amassed a total of 85cm. Cash prizes went to the top three and Clubman Points awarded respectively to the top ten - check the Points Table for current positions.

The fishing was well below par at this promenade mark with nearly half of the competitors failing to catch. Even those that did could only, on average, muster two or three fish.
Being based on single longest fish, with a pool for the best flat fish, dogs or smooth hounds over high water were in demand to determine a winner, but apart from a single one of the aforementioned, catches consisted of flounders, eels, sole and small whiting.
The eventual winner was Andy Sothern who had a dog measuring 61cm amongst his bag of fish. Gary Tully caught a 37cm sole on his first cast and, after an anxious wait throughout the match, the fish gave him 2nd place. Nigel Conlon took 3rd with his flounder of 33cm.
There was cash prizes for the top three and Clubman Points were awarded accordingly to the top 10 with the result also determining Gary and Nigel as winners of the best flat respectively.

Our species match at The Gun produced a total of six; namely smooth hound, conger, flounder, dab, cod and eel.
While good size fish were caught, along with the usual species they didn't appear in any great volume. In fact, on some pegs, there was a complete absence of fish. Dave Evans got off to a good start landing two species in two consecutive casts. As the match progressed, however, the lead was changing throughout, though at the conclusion only one angler - Ian Griffiths - had recorded four species which gave him first place.
Dave Evans and Steve Bonner had three species each but it was Dave with the better length to give him second meaning third for Steve. Fourth place went to Alex Campbell who counted a conger of just under a metre amongst his catch.
Cash prizes went to the top three with Clubman Points being awarded to the top 10. Check out the Points Table for the latest update or for a complete picture to go www.wirral.fishing/points

On our consecutive visit to The Rock Channel the format on this occasion was each angler's best flat and round fish added together. Steve Bonner got off to a good start catching a bass on his first cast before quickly adding a flat fish to his catch.
As the match progressed, all anglers were catching flat fish species, namely dabs, plaice and flounder with some pegs producing well but others yielding just one of two fish. It wasn't until close to the finish that several round fish were landed to finalise the results. Thus, at the conclusion, the winner was Alex Campbell having a total of 77cm with a plaice of 39cm and a bass of 38cm. Steve Bonner was second with his flat and round giving him a total of 70cm just ahead of Jim Morris whose combination tallied at 68cm. There was cash prizes for the top three and Clubman Points for the top 10 from which the first six places were from the flat and round combination with single longest fish making up the remaining positions.
