Colin Graham was introduced to angling at the age of 4 by his father. Come to the age of 17 and the sale of the family boat Colin bought his first charter boat Magnet 2, fishing wrecks and reefs over the weeken with the locals.

Diving was Colin's next thing to put his hand to. Every evening he would dive wrecks and ground so he had the understanding what was beneath. Fishing was his passion a dream to let others share his experience of finding those big fish and landing them !!,

Reading all the books on wrecks, deep sea diver logs and trolling through the web different notes wrecks and ground. The knowledge on where to go times of year tides and weather conditions seen Colin produce good catches time and time again.

Colin Needed faster boat so he saved and bought an offshore 105 and fished the deeper wrecks,pushing further north and south on the grounds and wrecks, again he come up trumps with the fishing. He then went commercial, now proud owner, trawler Blueye .D. named after his father. New 2015 New commercial Trawler Blueye has went into commission, Colin fleet turned into great business owning three commercial boats.

With great Demand the New Charter Boat was ordered to Colin's Specification!! He knew all what was needed to fulfil a charter boat anglers dream. Blueye2 was commissioned 2014 followed by Blueye stern trawler 2015. No matter what time of year, wind and tide all his knowledge goes into finding the fish............. Colin is one of the best known skippers on the North East Coast.

This Charter has been listed as Suitable for Diving Trips. Contact the Skipper for full details.

    A crew from North East Maritime Trust on historic purse netter worked alongside Colin and his crew on Blueye on September 10. This was in the making of a scene of The Last Kingdom for Carnival Films. At all times Colin followed the instructions of the director without drama or fuss whilst running in close formation with us, a short distance outside the Tyne breakwaters. Impressive manoeuvering and nothing too much trouble. Thank you Colin.

    Skippers Reponse: Hi Paul thanks for the opportunity was great day manny thanks

  • 15/06/2019 Fishing Report by Colin Graham

    15 Jun 2019 by Colin Graham

    Weekend report:-

    Set off Saturday morning wondering north or south to head due to the seas and rain we've had through the week, a flip of the coin decided south it was, we picked up a few fish early on then an un-forecast wind from the s.e came away making fishing even harder than it already was, we had no more than 20 fish for the day to maybe 6lb, Saturday evening was a pick away trip, dozens of 6" coalies and a few cod, the weather was fantastic kinda making up for the lack of fish!!! (in a way haha)

    We set off Sunday morning with a plan to fish the local wrecks and a southerly wind coupled with the tide put a dampener on that one so we headed inshore for a bit shelter which we got working our way along the coast only managing a few cod for the efforts then the wind dropped and wreck time it was come noon. Just aswell we did as we ended the day for 30+ fish with ling to around 12lb and cod to around 7lb and a dozen or so macky, the hard work and moving around payed off in the end.

    Get your places booked up peeps on 07572381784 as spots are going fast and it's first come first served, thanks to all those who fish with us as it can't be done without you's!! Tight lines folk �� �� ��
