Additional Description:

Channel warrior is a full time angling boat owned and skippered by myself and operates right through the year. She has been taking anglers safely to sea for the last 20 years, and for many more years to come. She has a new cat. 430 hp engine and cruises at 12 to 14 knots. Because this is my main source of income you can be sure I will give you the best day possible so that you the angler will want to come back time after time, my living depends on it.
In Lyme Bay there are hundreds of reefs,rough grounds and wrecks and some of the reefs are now no go areas for trawlers and these areas have now started to fish very well indeed. Lyme bay will fish any state of the tide with the exception of the biggest of springs and the the smallest of neaps which can prove challenging but not imposable. Starting in 2014 I will be giving a £40 gift voucher from a well known tackle supplier for the best fish, at the end of every month, or a free trip the winner chooses which.

    Thank you Steve for a most enjoyable trip. After a slow start the fishing came alive and along with the great banter from the boys, excellent coffee and cake and of course great fishing it was a most enjoyable day.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks John glad you enjoyed your day, hope to see you again on channel warrior.

    Fantastic day plaice fishing, biggest 4.5 pound.Thanks Steve

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Ben you're review is appreciated, glad you enjoyed your day.

  • 5-star Tony Raddon (06/10/2013)

    Fantastic days fishing with Steve. 8 of us on board and plenty of room as the Channel Warrior is a big boat. Hugely helpful to all on board and never stops trying to put you on the fish. Regardless of your level of abilty I would definitely recommend Steve and the Channel Warrior

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you Tony for taking the time to post an encouraging review. Look forward to having you all aboard again in the future

  • 5-star John Fowle (03/03/2012)

    I been fishing aboard the channel warrior during the summer autumn winter and spring, I can say with all honesty I have enjoyed every trip, I have been very ill during this time with heart problems. But it's no problem for Steve or Alan, and feel in safe hands when aboard. They are more than willing to help with my tackle to the boat and afterwards always willing to help me back to my car. Steve will always try to find the best spots to fish from and if they are not fishing as well as expected, the boss soon up anchor and moves to a new spot. Early on this year fishing was bad, mainly because of the very late spring, but once the spring bloom was clear it was back to the fishing we are use to. But I do enjoy the winter fishing most as Steve always is able to find great action channel whiting fishing, it's rare trip when you don't catch 30/40 prime whiting in one session. You get very good value for money and well worth a trip. There's never a problem taking all the fish you catch. If you have a really good trip you will fill your freezer with good eating fish that will last a few weeks or you can give them to your family and friends.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks John for taking the time to write a review, its always a pleasure to have you aboard, lets hope the weather is kind to us this coming winter. See you next week, tight lines mate

    There are some nice rays showing up on the inshore marks now also a steady flo of plaice. All we need now is the weather to settle down so that we can get out there after them

  • 16/07/2017 Fishing Report by Stephen Wake

    16 Jul 2017 by Stephen Wake

    A steady flow of good size black bream are now coming aboard, this should get better now over the next couple of months. Mackerel are still a bit hit and miss, one day good next day can't find enough for bait and exactly the same thing with the plaice.
    Todays adventure started off very slow but after midday the wind dropped and the sea flattened out a bit and the bites came on good and strong.
    Tight lines to all Steve

    Not only is there some big old congers on the wrecks and lots of them. There is also some good smooth hound and tope fishing along with a variety of rays .

    5 Jul 2017 by Stephen Wake

    We have been getting a lot of good conger fishing on the wrecks lately 40-50 off just one wreck up to 60lb. All conger caught are released. On the small tides when other fish play hard to get, the conger gives a good days sport . If you fancy having a bash at them , give me a call.
