Welcome to Poole Bay Small Boat Angling Club, Poole's only club dedicated to small boat angling.

For a membership form click here

We are a small club established to promote safety at sea and small boat angling. We have approaching 200 members with over 100 boats. Members keep their boats on trailers, swinging moorings and pontoon berths. Boat sizes range from small outboard driven dinghies up to a maximum length of 35'. The club aims to cater for the needs of sea anglers fishing from small boats within Club waters that extend from St Catherine's Point in the East to Portland Bill in the West.

We hold regular club meetings, competitions, social events and an annual open boat competition, which this year will take place on Saturday 27th June. Club meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at the Parkstone Trades and Labour Club Ashley Road, Parkstone, Poole, Dorset. Get map

We also organise for our members occasional courses. Some courses recently attended by our members are RYA Powerboat level 2, RYA first aid, sea survival and VHF.
As well as formal courses there is a great wealth of information (both boating and fishing) waiting to be gleaned from other members.

Great Attendance At This Year’s
PBSBAC Members Junior Fishing Competition

This year’s summer Junior fishing competition was held over three days finishing off with a BBQ presentation on the final day. This ever popular event was again well attended with a total of 18 enthusiastic Juniors from 4 yrs to 13 yrs of age. (11 Boys and 7 Girls)

To give all ages a chance of winning a super prize the competition was split into the following three categories:

Best Specimen (All ages) Species Hunt (Ages 10 and under) Species Hunt (Ages 11 to 16)

An amazing 27 different species were caught over the three days and the largest specimen landed and returned was an Undulate Ray of 14lb 4ozs caught by Jacob Givens of 12 years of age. Well done Jacob.

All entrants received a tackle box (blue for boys and pink for girls), a £10.00 fishing voucher and a commemorative trophy for entering the competition. In addition 13 prizes were awarded across the categories giving all ages an equal chance of being placed.

Of course the event could not have been a complete success without the generosity of its sponsors who donated some excellent prizes. A massive thank you to them all.

They were:

Poole Sea Angling Centre
MDL Marinas
Purbeck Marine
Christchurch Angling Centre
Allan Green

PBSBAC views the development of it’s Junior members an important part of the club’s future and welcomes all new members. If you’re looking for a fishing club that is welcoming, friendly and progressive then Join here. It costs a lot less than you think.

We look forward to meeting you.
