Motor Boats & Fishing
Welcome to the motor boats and fishing section of the Club:
AYC members have a wide range of powered craft that are used for boating, fishing, diving, & waterski-ing in Lyme Bay. Members with motor boats are also very welcome to join the cruiser sailors on any of the Club coastal rallies - see the Cruiser Programme for 2016 rally dates.
Members of the Club have a wealth of experience of boating in Lyme Bay and in coping with the vagaries of the river mouth. If you are new to the area or to motor boating you may wish to consider the following:
Seek the advice of members - contact John Coop (email email@example.com) to arrange a 1 to 1 session with a member.
Arrange an R.N.L.I Sea Safety Advice on Board session - this is FREE of charge and addresses the question of what safety equipment to carry on board and may assist you in what safety equipment to concentrate on in the first instance. ( see RNLI safety on board)
Take an RYA theory/practical course ( see AYC training course information)
Fishing in Lyme Bay
Lyme Bay offers a variety of fishing opportunities for the boat angler. Plaice and mackerel can be caught within several hundred yards of the beach. Black bream, cod, pollack, conger eels, dogfish and huss inhabit the reefs whilst the many wrecks offshore offer excellent fishing for bass, pollack and cod.
The Club offers a prize for the best and also the most unusual fish caught each year.
Please let me know of any notable fish or catches firstname.lastname@example.org
Come along to the Club on the first Friday of each month for 'Fishermen's Friday'. We meet in the bar from 6pm to discuss catches, baits, tackle and all things of interest to those who enjoy catching their own supper.
