    Yorkshire Coast Ray League.



    Hi, just out of curiosity and interest, I'm going to start to record notable catch's of the above, I think it would be of interest to find out what baits are being used also area where being caught, you can be vague ie south of Withernsea. It would be great if you had a photo of your fish. The leagues will start from the beginning of this year, come September I'll add historical catches this will aid in comparing past years results.

    Anglers are allowed one listing under 10Ib and two listings over 10Ib. The league will then be progressing forward with anglers PB’s, also it will make it easier to update.

    1. 13Ib 3 oz Stephen Smith South of Hilston 13/05/17 Squid/bluey

    There are tons of thornbacks all along the coast. Fished for them regularly a few years back from the yak off Marske. Big Sods well. Do a search and see the pics of me and Andym fishing for them. Not sure if they can be caught from the beach, but there certainly arnt in really deep water.

    Hi Steve, looked for your pic of the ray you caught on Robs match couldn't find it, if you could post details of your largest skate this year that would be great.
