An Open match means its open to anyone to fish, not just club members.
Booking in at the Paddling pool from 4pm where you draw for the zone you will fish in. The beach is split into 3 zones and you have to draw which one you will be fishing in. If you are fishing in a group, one of you can draw for the group as long as you say so before you draw.
If you want any more info ask away. Hope to see you there.
Retain any fish you catch over the minimum landing size ( a list is available at the booking in ) and they are weighed at the end of the match back at the Paddling Pool.
You can then release them if you have kept them alive or take them for the pot if not.
There are also prizes for the heaviest round fish and heaviest flatfish which are included in the entry fee, as well as zone prizes, table prizes
and a raffle.
You may only fish with one rod but may have a spare assembled but with no rig on, and a maximum of three hooks per cast. You can pre-bait your next rig and hang it off your rodrest, then swap them over when you reel in, which means you have as much fishing time as possible.
There should be Whiting and Codling, with Dogfish and the possibility of Thornies ( 6 were caught in last years match ).
