Smoothound, Bass, Thornback Ray, Dover Sole off local shoreline - June 2017

Pictured is Ryan Smart with a fantasic Thornback Ray caught on bluey bait from an Eastbourne beach on Friday night 23rd June. 
The fish measured 65cm across the wings and with the point system this comes out at about 10.5lb. However, our recent experience suggests it probably weighed well over 11lb - which Ryan also thought when he picked it up!

Although several local anglers caught thornback rays up to approx 9lb earlier this year, this is definitely the biggest thornback ray we have heard about caught from the local shoreline. Well Done Ryan!


Also pictured is Philip Burke with a bass caught at Herbrand Walk, Cooden on 21st June, and Luke Ripley with an 8lb smoothound caught at Langney Point, Eastbourne on 21st June.


There have also been catches of dover sole, mostly at night and generally from the shoreline at Pevensey Bay/White Horses, like the two sole (largest 1lb 4¼oz) caught in Pevensey Bay during an Anderida match by Trevor Rooney pictured below.
