Cardiff battle in big fight to be the Seamaster.

Byline: RON COUSINS

ALL sea angling roads lead to Cardiff foreshore on Sunday, where Seamaster points await the top 20 anglers in the WFSA East Region Open Shore Competition.

Fishing is from 4pm to 8pm along the beach from the pumping station to the first tank on Longships Road.

Booking-in is from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at Heliport Road and the entry is pounds 7 or pounds 2 for juniors.

There is a lengthy prize list, starting with pounds 300 for the winner and including a rod donated by Anyfish Anywhere and a Penn beachcaster from Garry Evans Angling Centres.

The top junior wins a rod and reel; the runner-up a rod and the third a reel - all donated by Aspinall's Angling of Barry.

HQ for the competition, which is also a Penn qualifier, is the New Fleurs Club, Splott.

The Seamaster points race is on again on Sunday, June 24 when the action moves to St Brides for the Newport and District Sea Anglers Open Competition.

Newport Land Reclamation has put up prizes of pounds 400 and pounds 150, while third prize is a pounds 150 photo shoot donated by M Dearden Photograhic.

The juniors will be fishing for a rod and reel donated by Dave Richards Angling Supplies.

Match HQ is at Peterstone Lake, where booking-in starts at 6.30am.

The catch and release competition will be fished from 9am to 12.30pm and the entry fee is pounds 8 or pounds 5 for juniors and pensioners.

Nigel Davies cleaned up in the WFSA smoothound challenge when he took the heaviest bag and also the prize for the best single fish with one that weighed 15lb 9oz.

All fish caught were returned alive and Lee Jones had the second heaviest bag with Gareth Davies in third place.

The Newport Sea Anglers roving competition was won by Rhys Watts, who beached two rays and a dogfish to put 4.28kg on his card.

One ray of 1.62kg gave second prize to Lee Brimfield and Sean Doyle's 1.16kg conger put him in third place. The club has a 4pm to 8pm competition at Coronation Park on Saturday.

Only four Penarth SAC members had fish to show for some hard beach fishing.

Chris Garner staked his claim to first prize with a 3lb 5oz conger from Ranny Pool; Fred Chick hooked one of 2lb 12oz by the white wall; the dogfish and eel caught by Patrick Goldsmith came to 1lb 7oz and Bob Galley managed a 4oz eel from Dock Beach.

Keith Skipper, from Cardiff, was the most successful member when Gwent and District SAC held a roving competition.

His 11.80kg catch was made up of five dogfish, one smoothound, one ray and a bass. Neil Owen caught a dogfish, a conger, a gurnard and a smoothound to finish in second place with 5.27kg.
