Fishing Report by Ross Parham
on Spot On! (Brixham, Devon)
26 Feb 2019 by Ross Parham
Spot On has had her scrub and clean and 'NEW' coding complete and it was back to work straight after.View Boats Page
With the wrecking difficult earlier this year it was great to get back out for another go and what a day we had.
Plenty of prime double figure pollock hitting the net from the off with every drift.
This is what this time of year is all about on the south coast and is simply some of the best fishing you can experience in the UK.
A bonus 12lb 4oz bass for local angler Alan which took a sidewinder lure.
A new PB for him and what a start to 2019 that's for sure.
Bass safely returned.
Big thanks to boat sponsors sidewinder lures and Top Rigs for there support.
Spot On has a busy year planned and new ventures lay ahead.
Pictures is the monster bass 12lb 4oz

Fishing Report by Kevin McKie
on Size Matters (Liverpool, Merseyside)
Feb 2019 by Kevin McKie
Size Matters has now moved to Croabh Haven Scotland, we will be here till mid June mostly targeting Common Skate.View Boats Page
We do have much bigger plans while we are here, when the weather allows I will give everyone the option of fishing the many reefs and wrecks offshore over 40 to 60 miles out.
For the more adventurous anglers I will give them the option of trying for sharks and even trips out to the continental shelf on 48 hour charters.
I have May 2nd and 3rd whole boat available this would be the perfect opportunity to head out to the shelf for a crack at a six gill shark or god knows what else lives out there.
Just in case you are wondering how we will get the anchor down on the shelf we have 2300ft of rope onboard and 100ft on chain especially for these type of trips.
On the trip from Liverpool to Scotland we struggled to catch anything on the wrecks and broken ground marks off the Isle of Man.
So we got a heads up from two of my mates to try a mark off Port Logan for skate bait, thanks lads.
Before heading to Croabh Haven Marina we decide to try for a Skate because the weather was so nice it was more like costa del Scotland then normal Scotland.
No wind and the sun was out, in just 3 hours fishing we had 4 Skate 191lb, 190lb, 178lb, 170lb and dropped 2, we even had a treble hook up with just two of us on the boat, that was fun.
The new Shimano Tyrnos 80lb class stands up sticks and Tyrnos 30 twin speed reels have cut the fight time down to 20 to 35 mins, this is much better for the Skate and angler.
I got lucky with the biggest and it had a data tag on it with a £50 reward, nice little Scottish sweetener or a welcome back present from the Skate gods ha ha.
We have arrived early so we have a few dates available this week.
Available dates for Scotland 2019.
Friday 1st 3 places available £110 pp.
Saturday 2nd 2 places available £110 pp.
Sunday 3rd 2 places available £110 pp.

Fishing Report by Colin Penny
on Flamer IV (Weymouth, Dorset)
25 Feb 2019 by Colin Penny
THE FLAMER IV POLLACK COMPETITION - took place in some lovely weather. The fishing was very poor in the morning but after trying several wrecks, at 11.50 it was like a switch had been turned on and the first Pollack came aboard caught by Keith Williams a steady catch of Pollack followed for the next two hours with Neil Cornelius leading the way with a 9Ib 8oz fish, as the tide eased we then moved to another wreck and the two best Pollack of the day were caught there along with a few others. The best lure of the day was certainly the Bubble Gum Pink Red Gill.View Boats Page

Fishing Report by Jon Whitton
on Alexia (Whitby, North Yorkshire)
23 Feb 2019 by Jon Whitton
The past couple of weeks has seen us get out on the fishing grounds daily with the high pressure and settled mild weather . The last set of neap tides saw very little fish caught as the water was starting to clear out with all the settled weather which isn't good when uptiding as you need plenty of colour in the water and add that to neap tides and hardly any flowing tide we struggled to get fish over the rails. The past few days has seen big spring tides and just as predicted the cod started to fly over the rails with plenty of tide and a little colour in the water in places the cod were back on the feed and we have been averaging around 40 codlings per trip with two cod over 8lb and many in the 3lb bracket so not a bad stamp of fish . Bait of choice been black lug and dirty squid. Please see our calender for available dates and upcoming trips. Also we have the spring festival coming up very soon which starts April 13th to April 28th. For more info or to book a trip with us contact barry onView Boats Page
