  • 08/09/2018 Fishing Report by jon old on High Flyer 2 (Great Yarmouth, Norfolk)

    Report on-board High Flyer 2

    With strong tides on the new moon starting today and a blustery south west we decided to stay inshore and have a comfortable day. To be honest expected some skate which have been hanging around on the inside but we didnt get one today i blame the skipper myself! well from the start the doggies were a pain of all sizes most liking the squid as they do, rattling away all day i cant remember a period when they wernt bitting! Same with the whiting constant all day was great sport but on the other hand a pain! Big thanks to Bert for organising the trip also newbies onboard , looking forward to our next one hopefully colder with no doggies and a few cod thrown in. Enjoyable day guys many thanks to you all,good banter. All best. Jon (High Flyer2 )

  • 09/2018 Fishing Report by Kevin McKie on Size Matters (Plymouth, Devon)

    Sep 2018 by Kevin McKie

    Report on-board Size Matters

    It’s been an interesting week onboard
    Size Matters based in Plymouth.

    On one of the days we had ago for Thresher Sharks for the first time, a local commercial skipper give me a mark to try where last year in September he caught 3 Threshers to 600lb accidentally in his nets.

    The area was very close to shore in much shallower water than we normally fish for sharks, we never caught a Thresher Shark but we did manage to catch two Porbeagle Sharks to 60lb and one Blue Shark at 55lb.

    We where definitely in the right place because there was so much bait fish in the area and we didn’t hold back on chum.

    We used 40kg of Mackerel, 20kg of Bran,
    5 litres of Sardine oil, 5 litres of Cod liver oil,
    1 litre of Salmon oil and 250mm of Halibut oil!!

    It was the biggest chum trail I have ever seen at one point I thought we had polluted the English Channel, we will be back having another go for Threshers at the end of the month weather permitting.

    The wreck fishing started off very slow this week, I went straight back to where I was doing well last week but the fish had moved off and it was a very tough day.

    The next day I had Crediton Sea Anglers onboard for there monthly charter, I told the boys that the wreck fishing was very tough the day before but I wanted to try a wreck I hadn’t been to since July.

    They where all up for the very long steam out but it was well worth it, the lads caught a total of 83 Pollack to 12lb, 2 Ling to 10lb, 1 Cod 5lb, 1 Coalfish 5lb and a cracking 4lb John Dory for good measure.

    Since then the wreck fishing has been very good with plenty of Pollack to 14lb 8oz, Ling to 15lb, Coalfish to 7lb and Tub Gurnard to 4lb 8oz.

    I have managed to pull Mr Graham Hannaford out of retirement to take the helm of
    Size Matters his old boat for a week or so while I take some time off to become a Dad for the first time.

  • 21/08/2018 Fishing Report by Nick McGrane on Gwen-Paul-M (Conwy, Conwy)

    21 Aug 2018 by Nick McGrane

    Report on-board Gwen-Paul-M

    I went out with my son on the 21st of August with Carl on Gwen Paul from Conwy. Started a little slow, but when we found the Mackerel, we caught plenty to keep us in bait and for those who wanted to take some home. I really wanted to catch a Tope, but Carl wasn't hopeful. We ended up landing 4 on the boat, ranging from 15lb to a 30lber caught by my son. Lot's of other species, dogs, bull huss and whiting but the Tope were the stars of the trip. Great day out, very good and patient skipper . Would definitely recommend.
