Richard Allwood of Weston won a big shore fishing competition at Minehead.
There was another great show of support from local sea anglers, as 75 fished the BCFSA spring open shore fishing competition between Minehead and Blue Anchor. The fishing turned out to be really hard, only eight anglers recording fish.
There was, however, a rare catch. The winner Richard Allwood bagged himself two turbot from Minehead town beach, the bigger of the two weighed nearly 2lb.
Results: Richard Allwood (65cm) £200; Steve Liddle (62cm) £100; Chris Stephens (59cm); T Jones (58cm); James Madsen (33cm); Dave Lane (32cm); John Lintern (28cm); Chris Barker (24cm)

Sam Terry Short was first out of the hat. This turned out to be quite fitting as the young man had lost a winning fish on the water’s edge, earlier in the day.
The BCFSA would like to thank everyone that supported this event, especially those who helped organise and sponsor the competition.
