17/05/2013 Fishing Report by Bob Marshall on Duke IV (Ramsgate, Kent)
17 May 2013 by Bob Marshall
Superb Skate fishing off Ramsgate at the moment!
If you have never caught a Skate or want some great light line sport, now is the time to come down here. Heindrics Belgium fichting team are enjoying great sport aboard Duke IV for the week with Skate to l3 lb 8oz along with lots of Skate, Smoothounds, Spurdog, Tope & Dabs etc.
Still good Cod & Pollack to be had from the wrecks when the weather allows us to get there.
Inshore Bass fishing remains patchy, maybe the cold weather holding them back but we look set for a few months of good fishing ahead. Still some weekend and plenty of weekday slots available so if its your first time or your experienced give me a call and come fishing aboard Duke IV for the best service around.

7 May 2013 by Bob Marshall
At last the water is slowly warming enough for the crabs to peel and the summer species are starting to show, with good numbers of Skate on the banks and the first Smoothounds being landed.
We made another visit to the wrecks with Andys crew from Kent who saw plenty of quality Cod being landed on the old favourites jellies and shads. No Pollack on this trip though, perhaps another species under pressure from commercial overfishing.
A stop on the banks on the way home saw a reasonable catch of Mackerel to feathers and hokkies, again these fish are not in the numbers we used to catch nor are they as large, hopefully the shoals will build with the jumbo Mackerel being the most superb eating fish around.
The Bass are keeping a low profile so far but they should arrive anytime now with plenty of sandeels on the banks, the crabs peeling and the last of the Whiting still here, there's a feast of food waiting for them. Still some weekend dates available to book Duke IV so give me a call and come along for a great fishing experience.

04/2013 Fishing Report by Bob Marshall on Duke IV (Ramsgate, Kent)
Apr 2013 by Bob Marshall
At last Duke IV has been able to get offshore to the wrecks off Ramsgate and the chaps from Daggers deep sea anglers caught plenty of Cod on jellies, shads and all sorts of rubber lures. Micky had the best of the day a shade under 11lb, not bad for so early in the season. Just one Pollack today for Kev who also landed his PB Cod and a nice Plaice when we stopped to drift lug over a bank on the way home.
Plenty of Skate inshore along with Smoothounds and the first Bass so its all happening out from Ramsgate. Baitwise still herring around so they will remain a good bait for Skate while soft or peeler crab is the top bait for Hounds, Bass will be chasing sandeels making hokkies a good choice while the lugworm still a good bait for the Bass. Still dates available for booking Duke IV. Whether its inshore or offshore you will always get a great days fishing aboard Duke IV.
