    Another great trip, took my son (7) on his first sea fishing trip, as usual Bob was brilliant and really helpful. On top of that everyone had some good catches.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Scott, always good seeing youngsters catch.

    Another fantastic day out with Bob and the Duke lv. Out to the Varne, stopping off on the way to catch some sand eels. once out on the wrecks, our group of 6 landed a couple of lovely Bass and a load of the biggest mackerel ever seen. great day out with Bob who worked his little socks off to get us on the fish. great boat and great skipper

    After a chilly breezy start the weather has improved to an almost balmy summer day and the fish are feeding well today with 5 Smoothounds to 8lb Skate and Doggies making up the numbers. Plenty of dates with some special offers available. So come along and make the most of spring.

    As the weather slowly warms up the fish are arriving, all be it reluctantly. We headed north today beginning the day on the edge of a channel hoping for a Cod, March and April were the best months for spring Codling. We gave it an hour catching a few Whiting and a Skate. We then moved out to the banks and had a super day on the Skate landing another 17 fish to 10lb, many of which were released. Jake and Darren enjoyed the day vowing to return in May. Plenty of dates available to join us whether an individual or group wanting to book the boat. Ring me on 07715050851 to book your place.

    As the days are getting longer, spring is coming bringing plenty of fish our way or so we hope. Skate fishing is improving with some good fish showing and we are looking for Spurdog that run through the channel early spring. So far this winter the Cod have been thin on the ground but we are still hoping, should l say praying for some sort of a spring Codling run as we used to get not many years ago. Still plenty of dates available including weekends available so give me a call and come along fishing.

    A good run of Skate have arrived keeping the rods busy along with shed loads of Whiting some of which are very good size for eating. Also some jumbo Pouting amongst them. The water has now got the chocolate brown colour that screams Cod, although they are thin on the moment as we head towards Xmas the chances of catching one looks good. Spaces available for groups or next individuals day 9th December. Pic shows some of yesterday's Skate to 10lb.

    Summer has hung on for as long as possible with the water temperature staying high we have been catching Bass, Mackerel and Scad on feathers and lugworm right up to November. With the wind picking up colouring the water we will be catching more Whiting and hopefully a few Cod. Skate fishing has been patchy with good numbers one day then struggle to find some the next. With a few large Cod being caught in the nets they are around so well worth fishing for with the chance of a large Bass or Skate along with good size Whiting. Plenty of weekdays and some weekend dates available on Duke lV. Flynn showed us how to catch Skate with the beauty pictured that he released.
