Congratulations to Dave Foden and Tim Mitcham for winning the Shore Pairs League with 163 points, second place went to Jo West lake and Gary Bickers with 138 points and in third place was Dave Graham and Elliot White with 133 points.

Shore report 14th December:-The weather was nasty to say the least with a strong southwesterly which at times gusted to over 40 miles per hour.
Two anglers choose to fish Seaton whilst the other four opted for Beer, the two anglers at Seaton were nearly caught out by a couple of exceptionally large waves this reminded us all of how careful we must be, these are very experience anglers used to fishing in rough conditions but they felt it best to stop for a while.
Beer proved to be a it's usual tackle graveyard but did produce fish, all of the dogfish being a good size with Dave Foden's 2lbs 4 ops being the best, Gary had one of 2 lbs 3 1/2 ops and Phil had one of 2 lbs 2 1/2 oz.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the anglers who have participated in this year's shore championship and hopefully 2020 will bring us more fish and better weather.
Seasons greetings to everyone associated with Beer and District Sea Angling Association.

About us

BDSAA is a small local club that meet at the Dolphin Hotel offering an informal focus for Sea Anglers in the area, we maintain a membership of about 40 people. We fish from both the shore and boat approximately once a month (next dates and venues on our “Fixtures page”). Primarily a species hunting club we concentrate our fishing to the greater Lyme Bay area in the main, but do venture out if a member has a particular wish to fish a specific venue. We regularly fish against other clubs, mainly those from East Devon i.e. Honiton and Lyme Regis, but would always welcome hosting a visiting club for a match. Check out our Cup Competitions. For Club record catches click here.

The club has been in existence since 1965 when it was simply known as the” Beer Fishing Club”, over the years it has kept to the same format of being informal, friendly and welcoming always of course maintaining it’s base in the beautiful picturesque village of Beer.

Our membership is drawn mainly from the Beer and Seaton area, however we do have members living as far a field as Taunton and Crewkerne in Somerset. Download a membership form in either Adobe Reader Adobe PDF (opens in another window) or Microsoft Word Word.

The Club has statements for Environment & Ecology, Future Assurance, Equal Opportunities and Young People & Safety.


Our sponsors are all from the area and we are grateful for their support and are pleased to be associated with them – Most of our members may be found to be supporting these local businesses as a matter of course, please feel free to click on the sponsors logo and find out more about them, or visit their page on our site.
