European Open Beach Championships Day 2 Sunday 27 February 2011

Sundays match got off to a nice sunny start with a light n/westerly breeze, and with over 1000 anglers taking part in this years event the beaches down to southern end of the boundaries were always going to be very popular on the smaller tides.

After chatting with some of the anglers at last nights presentation, Out Newton and Dimlington areas would be packed out with anglers as that’s where  most of the fish came from on the Saturday.

It would be a very early start to get to your choice of venue, most anglers said they were heading back to the same venue they fished on the Saturday.

Having taken a look down the coast from Bridlington this morning the sea looked perfect for cod with plenty of colour and very nice, not too big surf pushing in.

Things could only get better lets hope the cod don’t disappoint us and we might even see a nice Holderness piggy at the weigh in.

3pm back at the weigh as usual it always gets off to a very slow start with only anglers that have fished local getting back early.

The first few fish weighed in were mainly flounders and the odd whiting. Then the big boys started to get back to the weigh with some nice cod.

Many local’s and forum member’s were weighing in some good fish and looked as if they would be in the prizes again

The European Open Beach Championship Saturday 26th February Results And Pictures


Paul Medd - Saturday's Winner From Out Newton

Day 1 Saturday 26th February 2011

Saturday day one of the main 2 day event, after the heavy over night rain it made me wonder what the already water logged cliffs would be like, some of the venue get downs were already treacherous with the rain over the past few days, last night’s rain would have made them a challenge to the bravest or the who dares wins brigade.

With the tides in the low 5.1mtrs and light n/westerly winds forcast with the odd light shower it was obvious that most of the anglers would be heading south, Hornsea to Spurn would be their preferred venues on the small tides.

Bridlington north beach only had few anglers same on the south beach, Barmston and Ulrome these beaches have proved very popular in the past but again only a few anglers again, not until you got to hornsea north beach did you find any anglers in numbers, from there next stop Tunstall this beach as always proved to be a very popular venue with anglers all along that stretch of the beach.

Reports of the beaches south of Tunstall being well preferred by most anglers, with most anglers getting down onto the beach very early to get the best or their favourite mark.

The European Open Beach Championship Flattie Bash Friday 25th February 2011

The Flattie Bash held on Wilsthorpe beach Bridlington is now in its second year has become a very popular event, billed as the warm up to the main two day will no doubt become a regular start to the Euro Championships

The flattie bash got under way at 11.30am with 150 anglers fishing the match, but with the beach covered in weed and fishing the tide down no one expected it to be nothing but an hard slog, but as the tide ebbed and to every one,s surprise the dreaded weed stayed at the high water mark, to the relief of all.

The honours of the day went to forum member Paul Broderick aka broders, Paul who fishs for Reckitts SAC  opted out to go to the Fraisthorpe end of the boundary, and fish by the little stream that flows onto the beach, this in the past has been a very good venue for flatties and to day proved to be an advantage as most of the fish came from that end of the boundary.

During the match some anglers started picking up the odd bass, a 44cm was caught and returned by forum member gazcoop, i my self managed a 32cm but as the match was billed as a flattie bash only flats were allowed to be measured, well done to all the lads that managed to catch on the day.

Flattie Bash Results (only top 5 win prizes)

  1. Paul Broderick Total 109cm  £280.00
  2. John Sloper 78 cm                     £170.00
  3. Nigel Crabtree 75 cm                £100.00
  4. Andrew Dawkins 65 cm           Abu reel
