  • 08/01/2019 Fishing Report by Rich Ward on Shy-Torque III (Whitby, North Yorkshire)

    8 Jan 2019 by Rich Ward

    Report on-board Shy-Torque III

    The last few trips on the Shy-Torque have been very up and down indeed.

    After a few days with Northerly winds and swell, the offshore fishing has taken a bit of a knock compared to just before Xmas. Even the wrecks out around the 20 mile stream were struggling to produce.
    Looks like we need a good settled spell to get the water cleared out again.

    The inshore fishing however is showing a few fish. The last uptide trip we did produced a sprinkling of codling. My son Adam catching the best of the day at 6 lb 1 oz.

    The boat is scheduled to be lifted from the water for a week from Monday 21st January for general maintenance.

    If you fancy a run out with us before then, either inshore or offshore, give me a ring on the usual numbers. We will, as ever, sail with a minimum 3 anglers.

  • 07/01/2019 Fishing Report by Stuart Denman on Ebony May (Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire)

    7 Jan 2019 by Stuart Denman

    Report on-board Ebony May

    What an awesome season we had in 2018. The good weather enabled us to fish well out into the Bristol channel. In May, we began targeting mid channel wrecks and the Lundy area. Catching good quantities of Pollock, Cod, Spurdog, and Tope. average Pollack 5 to 8 lb. Also at the end of May, June, July, Tope arrived in good quantities inshore. Largest Tope caught this year 68lbs, caught on a shallow in shore mark.,fresh mackerel providing the bait, we had several trips with .over thirty tope landed. We were privileged to have Dave Lewis from Sea Angler magazine out with us in June, writing an article on the excellent Tope fishing in our area. On the day we landed several Tope up to 45lbs. June, July, August, September, we caught good quantities of Bream, Wrasse (Ballan and Cuckoo), Skates and Rays, Turbot, Bass, Smoothhound, Bullhuss, Pollock, Coalfish, Garfish, and several other species. This shows the diversity of fishing in our area. Looking forward to 2019. Now taking bookings for wreck/Lundy trips in May/June. Also, Tope fishing begins May-July. I am convinced on the quantity and size of the Tope that we caught in 2018, that there is a new welsh record Tope waiting to be caught in our area. With the lifting of the Bass ban allowing us to catch Bass, we will also be targeting Bass using live sandeels from June until October, drifting inshore reefs. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank customers old and new. Really excited for 2019.

    Report on-board Piscary

    Piscary end of year report 2018
    After the beast from the east hit in March the fishing was a bit slow to get started but it did end up being one of the best years ever for speices and specimens,with the boat record for speices being smashed with a total of 60 for the year and several boat records were broken!
    Fish of the month for March was a 21lb Spurdog caught by Darren Phillips, we also had Ling to 10lb Thornbacks to 13lb
    Fish of the month for April was a 17lb Undulate Ray caught by Dave Colclough,we also had lots of Rays,Congers,Smoothounds and of course Bream!
    May was an amazing month with too many great fish to mentioned Paul Filer won fish of the month with a Piscary record Bass of 16lb 8oz,Roy Adams Broke the Gar record with a fish of 1lb 8oz we also had Blondes to 21lb,Tope, Bullhuss,Spurdogs and Bream to 3lb 3oz and Steve Maylin came 3rd in Poole Sea Angling Center Bream comp with a fish of 2lb 11oz winning the Pat Manly trophy for Piscary for the second year in a row.
    June was also a bumper month with some good Tope fishing, Blondes to 21lb ,lots of Smoothounds to 9lb 8oz, Undulates to 17lb. Darren Phillips hit the jackpot again boating Piscarys first ever Coalfish at 8lb, and Andy Speight almost beat the boat record Turbot , with a monster flatty of 21lb.
    July was unbelievable good , first of all the Piscary Gilt-head Bream record was broken 3 times in one week. First by Darren Phillips at 1lb 11oz, then by Dave Colclough at 1lb 15oz, and finally by Shaun Lyndsey- Collins at 2lb 2oz. Another first for Piscary were the Thin Lipped Mullet we caught this year. Again the record was broken a few times in one evening, with the largest being caught by Andy Mitchell at 2lb 14oz . We had our annual Stingray trip , only one small one caught by Steve Churchill to add to his & the boat species for the year. Darren Phillips had another super rare fish a Streaked Gurnard, only the second one we have ever seen. Other notable fish we had were Bream to 4lb, Thick Lipped Mullet to 3lb 11 oz and there were quite a few nice Plaice around.
    August fishing was pretty standard compared to other months, however we did have some very good sessions on the Rays ,Sole, Plaice, Bass to over 9lb and Damen Court added to the speices with a Couch's Bream again only the second one we have ever see.
    September saw us do a bit more offshore and wreck fishing than normal where Dave Colclough absolutely smashed our Tub Gurnard record with a fish of 6lb 4oz we also had quite a few very big Pollack and Undulates to 18lb
    The weather stayed very settled in October and managed to get offshore quite a bit again .The big Pollack were still showing with fish to 13lb 12oz,I had a personal best Blonde Ray of 27lb we also had Smoothounds to 13,The Sole fishing was the best it's been for a few years with fish to 2lb 4oz and Steve Churchill added to the speices with a Golden Grey Mullet.
    Unfortunately the weather was not so kind in November and only did a hand full of trips made the most of our days out though with plenty of Congers, Spurdogs, Roy Adams had yet another first for Piscary an Atlantic Bonito,There were still plenty of Rays inshore along with some nice Whiting, Andy Pedon equaled the boat record Ballan Wrasse with a beauty of 6lb 6oz.
    The weather was just as bad in December right up until the end of the month when we got a few trips in to finish the year off as you would expect the fish was very goog with Whiting to 3lb 6oz, Congers to 47lb,Blonde Rays and Spurdogs to 17lb
    All the fish of the month winners won a Bongee Spongee.
    The Piscary Tuesday Evening league was another great success with Gary Rook winning the League on 63 points he wins a free trip, Gillon Thompson was second on 60 points, Pete Dickinson was third on 58
    Gary also had the most speices in the league with 22 second was Pete Dickinson with 20 he wins a free trip by default.
    Gillon Thompson had the best specimen in the league a 14lb Undulate he also wins a free trip. The evening league will be running again next year, starting on Tuesday 7th May, then fortnightly until 24th September. Best 8 out of 11 to count for the scores. Please contact me to book in or for more details.
    In the annual species hunt Darren Phillips came out on top with 43 species , he wins a free trip. Steve Collins was second on 40 , he wins a free evening/half day trip. Dave Colclough was third on 39, then Nick Lark on 37, Roy Adams & James Ellis on 36, Kim White on 34, Rex Swansbury, Neil Mortimer & Damen Court all on 31,Gillon Thompson on 29, Vernon Allen on 28, Steve Churchill & Andy Peadon on 27, Leigh Van Eldik on 26, Pete Dickinson on 23, Richard Day & Rod Giles on 21.

    Report on-board Mistress

    Just come back from a great evening uptiding trip on the Mistress. Really good night, set off 4pm from the pontoon, through the bridge and out past the piers. Half an hour or less and we were into fish nice little codling to start the night off. Fishing was steady away all evening a couple of nice fish coming onboard even a dog fish making an appearance . Unfortunatly a couple of seals decided to join so that slowed the catch rate. we moved to a couple of marks. It was a very peacful nights fishing . Rich was keeping us right on the ins and outs of uptiding at night and Crewman Nikki kept busy netting and untangling. Got back to the pontoon just after 10pm. all for £30, Bargain, Can't wait till next time.

    Report on-board Mistress

    Brilliant night tonight smashing the cod on our 1st night trip of the year,

    The lads managed a steady 50-60 codlings on our 6 hour trip, the best angler managing around 15 himself.

    Yesterday on our day trip we managed around 70 keeper codlings with chuck backs on top of that.

    We'll be looking to run these on weekly basis on a weekend night and maybe in the week too if we get enough interest. Theyre £30 per person.

    If youre interested in a trip with me give me a call on 07977 436903
