With Autumn on its way sea anglers fishing on the Lancashire coastline are starting to see a run of cod, nothing massive but good to see.
Fleetwood and District Angling Club fished their latest match at Five-Bar Gate where they found a good sea with plenty of colour in the water. There were a few fish but not the hoped for cod or bass, plenty small whiting caught.
25 anglers fished and most caught something.

No stand out baits today worm fished as well as anything.
Next week’s match is at Lytham fishing the tide down, hopefully the flounders will be feeding well.
Dave Brown pumped some worm, they weren’t the easiest, then headed up to Rosall to fish high tide. He started off sandblasted but luckily it poured down to wash all the sand off. However he was soon into fish ended up with eight codling, most around 40cm. With one better fish that he took home. He also managed a good whiting and a tope pup as well.
