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.

    We booked six spaces with Steve . The sea conditions were perfect, flat calm and warm. Steve never stops trying to find the fish and we moved several times during the day. We had a fun day out and caught Congers, Rays, Doggies , mackerel and Plaice . The Pollack and Cod didn`t oblige, but there was a lot of may rot about, which doesn`t help the fishing. Steve always works hard for his anglers and his co owner Al is also very helpful. All in all a top skipper, which is why we have several trips per year aboard Channel Warrior.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Pete it is appreciated you guys make a hard day much more enjoyable

  • 5-star john dean (11/08/2015)

    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.

  • 5-star Ben Burke (23/06/2015)

  • 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 May 2018 by steve wake

    Good numbers of pollock are moving in on the reefs and inshore wrecks now , lots of fish in the 6 to 9lb range. The plaice fishing is not too bad iether when conditions are right and should carry on improving

    26 Jul 2017 by Stephen Wake

    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.
