Species Hunt – Sat 16th Aug 2014

Species hunt

Luce Bay/Port Logan

Fishing times from 0900 to 1700 hrs.

This year’s Scottish Sea Angling Conservation Network Species Hunt takes place this Saturday in Luce Bay / Port Logan areas of Southwest Scotland – the early forecast is showing moderate winds from NW to SW. If the winds directions remain the same as the current forecast then fishing will be confined to Luce Bay.

As we all know the weather systems at the moment are pretty changeable so we will keep an eye on the forecast and put out an event update on Thursday evening.

EVENT INFO:

This fun event is being run by SSACN to highlight the bio-diversity of fish in the area and promote SSACN’s FishSmart and GFAC Initiative ( Give Fish A Chance ) ….… many species of fish from Sandeels to Tope are caught regularly and catches of 15 to 20 species in a single day are common.

Registration will be at Ardwell Slip car park from 0800 – 0830 hrs.
Registration fee is £5 for seniors – Juniors free.
Catch returns must be recorded at Ardwell by 1800 hrs with the prize giving at 1815 hrs.

Anglers will be given a photograph at the registration that must be pictured in the background of a digital photograph of each species caught ….. the picture must be clear – species of Wrasse and Poor Cod / Pouting must have pictures that will allow the organisers to clearly identify individual species. The organisers decision will be final.
