  • 02/2018 Fishing Report by Lewis hodder on Lyme Bay Charters (Lyme Regis, Dorset)

    Report on-board Lyme Bay Charters

    February’s fishing was typical of the time of year really, we only manage 6 trips 4 of which were on the wrecks and 2 inshore trips.

    Inshore fishing produced plenty of whiting up to 3lb, the odd thornback ray, Bull Huss and a fair few small Smoothies.

    The wrecking continued to be good with lots of Pollack caught up to 15lb.

    Not a lot else to report I’m afraid this month hopefully I’ll have a bit more to write about in next months report when hopefully we will start seeing some good Pollack on the inshore reefs and wrecks and maybe even a few early Plaice and more smoothies on the inshore grounds.

    Tight lines

    Report on-board High Flyer 2

    Bringing us up to date we have seen a small influx of codling in recent week the downside now hit by 40mph plus easterly winds with everyone snowed in now! Hoping this cold snap will bring few more fish in on a normal year this month would be spring codling run follwed by the spotty dogs turning up mid to late March then April the start of skate when spring arrives. All we can do see what occurs the better times are just around the corner roll on the smoothounds! Website up to date for those wanting to plan any trips, this year we have been asked to do more tope specials so we will keep eye out for them mid june onwards rule of thumb. Lost out on night trips last year the wind just didnt play ball lets hope for a better season with the jet stream hopefully going the right way for once and all that cable work finished putting a spanner in the works i am looking forward to a better season. Hoping you can join us at some point. Next review soon as we get out until then tight lines everyone. Jon

  • 03/2018 Fishing Report by Scott Belbin on Galloper (West Mersea, Essex)

    Mar 2018 by Scott Belbin

    Report on-board Galloper

    Following on from my last report on here the fishing has been quite good to start off the year here at mersea. The weather has been pretty favourable until this week and we have managed to get most trips in. what we are hatching has varied quite a bit depending on the tides and where we can get to. As many others boats in the area have reported there have been far better numbers of codling than the last couple of seasons. Most trips are producing a few codling and thorn-back rays with 6-12 codling an average sort of trip. Our best trip so far this year has been 23 codling along with a few rays, pouting, a dogfish, a bass and lots of whiting up to 43cm! this cold snap seems to have slowed some of the fish up since then but I would expect it to improve as we approach the end of the season.
    The dogfish and thorn-backs don’t tend to like the cold weather much but when we do get a couple of weeks of warmer weather they will soon push into our shallow coastal waters which warm up first. With any luck we will still have codling mixed in too which along with the other bits and bobs makes for some nice spring sport.

    Report on-board My Way

    We’ve been enjoying some settled weather off late and managing to get afloat on 6 days from the last 9. Coming to an end today as the cold winds with a F5 – 7 easterley forecasted.
    Fishing has been consistent for the time of year. Inshore offering up plenty of fish dogs, whiting and huss the majority of catches with dabs, pout, coalies and straps amongst the others.

    When we’ve pushed out to Holyhead Deep we’ve been rewarded with huss and some good double figure spurdogs.

    Good weather, good fishing, good crews, some excellent food and a good few laughs along the way.
