The organizing work for the European Shore Championship to be held from Akureyri, North-Iceland


1st May to 4th May 2019 is almost completed. A newsletter with detailed info, entry forms and more has been sent to your Section.




Entries for the venue: There are 56 anglers competing in the Championship from 7 Sections; England (11), Germany (8), Iceland (5), Ireland (10), Netherlands (8), Scotland (6) and Wales (8).


The fishing spots: We will be fishing from three different shores/spots: Nearby the center of Akureyri, from the piers in Akureyri and from a nearby village of Hjalteyri. Information which spot we will be fishing will be announced at the registration or at the start of each fishing day.


Fishing rules: See below. A maximum of two hooks are allowed with minimum size of 14 mm.


Please note that this rule has been changed from minimum gape of 14 mm to minimum size of 14 mm.


The point system and fishing: The Championship is a Shore Championship with unlimited amount of fish to count for points. The calculation of each day result is done by adding the total running length of your fish with the number of your fish multiplied with a constant of five (Total length of fish + No. of fish x 5 = Total fish points of the day).


The zones: We will fish from 5 zones; A, B, C, D and E and your place will be drawn at the registration Wednesday 1st May. The winner of a zone each day is the angler with the most fish points that day.


The winner of the Championship: If two anglers are with the same total zone points for all the fishing days then the fish points will decide who is the winner. If two anglers are with the same total zone points and the same fish points, then the number of fish will decide who is the winner.


Fish to catch: Cod, Coalfish, Haddock, Dab, Catfish (Wolf fish) and Whiting. We expect to fish few Shorthorn Sculpin (Scorpion fish), Rough Dab, Flounder, Halibut and Plaice and maybe some Thorny Ray, Redfish and Pollock.


The fishing: Put all your fish into your bucket. You do not need to bleed the fish. The shore Stewards will measure and write your fish down on the Scorecard and take care of the fish. If the fish is live able it will be released. Please note that this rule has been changed.


Bait: We will use Blueye and/or Mackerel.


Teams: It is free of charge to register into teams. The drawing into teams will be done with blind draw at registration on Wednesday 1st May.
