We are mainly a specimen fish based club but do hold monthly a monthly shore competition which bring our members together to fish on a fairly non competitive basis. Monthly shore competitions give members the opportunity to meet up and exchange recent catch information and discuss future exploits. A good number of specimens have also been taken during our shore competitions.
Shore fixtures are held on venues from the westerly fringes of west Sussex through to the steep shelving beaches of Dorset`s Chesil beach. The wide variety of venues allows a very mixed approach to members technique. From flounders, eels and mullet in the Solent’s estuary’s to whiting, rays and codling on the open beaches makes our league a great challenge to even the most experienced anglers.
The Wessex Specimen Group fully supports the catch and release of specimen fish and urges all its members to record and return catches.
Welcome to the home of the Wessex Specimen Group sea angling club. The club was formed to provide a small friendly gathering for anglers who share an interest in targeting specimen fish within the wessex region. Our members are a small but dedicated team of anglers who spend the majority of there time hunting that prized specimen wherever and whenever tthat takes them. Members have recorded catches from Cornwall, North/south Devon, Bristol channel, Hampshire, Dorset, West Sussex and across the sea to the Channel Islands. Specimen fish can be recorded from any UK shore venue providing a witness of capture/weight and photograph are submitted.
