    Report on-board JFK TWO

    weather has been so unpredictable laterly. had to scrape ice off my car and the boat minus 2 degrees crazy for middle of may.
    set off at about 7.30 just cleared the peirs and straight into a shower of large hailstones that actually hurt when they hit you.
    turned south the sea had a bit of northerly roll on but not to bad once the hailstones passed. twenty minutes to the first wreck.
    down went the rods. first off a cod of about 4lbs to a chrome jigger an one pouting to bait [suid]
    around again 2 ling again on squid 4/5 lbs each. nothing next 2 drifts. away to next wreck. simalar pattern but a fish or 2 every drift with cod to 8lbs an ling to 9lbs. the next wreck was the same steady a fish or so each drift.
    fishing was steady away until after dinner when the tide changed an the drift speeded up and only occasional fish being taken. for about 2 hrs
    but later the wind eased [an warmed up] and the fish came on again.
    so all in all a reasonable day with about 45 fish mainly in th 4-6lbs range

    Report on-board PLAN B

    Fished Saturday 8th May , poor conditions but keen to get out and give the boat a good run.
    went to a mark on the maplin sands and caught skate sporadically during the day, the anglers mostly freshwater carp men all managed at least a skate each, best fish was an 11lb skate with about 10-15 being released to fight another day.
    A few doggies and a couple on tiny hounds made the total haul, but considering the weather and lack of experience a good days fishing was had by all.

    Report on-board Shy-Torque III

    Fishing here at Whitby has really taken off over the last few trips. The wrecks out to 19 miles North of the harbour have bee very fruitful of late with our best catch this last week being a group of 5 lads taking over 70 cod off 1 wreck. Cod and Pollack the main catch. Water is certainly clearing now lads !!! All fish caught on the jelly worm and shad.

    Report on-board She Likes It Rough 2

    SAT 17th/SUN 18TH APRIL

    Big tides this weekend it’s to early for Bassing so it saw us ground fishing for Roker and cod. A good couple of days fishing really, Sat we ended up with 13 Roker to 11lb 8oz and 10 cod all within the 4- 8lb bracket. Sunday brought us much the same with 17 Roker to 9lb and 6 Cod, again fish of the 4-8lb stamp.

    THURS 22nd APRIL

    Another Offshore wrecking trip unfortunately not as good as couple of weeks ago. We have been hit with a bad case of May weed or ‘ Baccy weed:’ as it is known this colours the water up and makes fishing a lot harder . Never the less after much hard work and travelling we managed to find clearer water and a wreck which held some fish we landed over 30 cod no big uns but not a bad day all in all.


    Due to Thurs wrecking trip not being as productive as we had hoped, we decided to bottom fish again today. It proved to be the right choice with an excellent day had by all. In total we landed nearly 40 cod to 12lb 8oz with another five low doubles thrown in. The size of the fish today was superb with the rest of the fish all being in 6-9lb range. Lets hope this fishing and weather stays with us for another week or two!

    Our offshore bassing trips will be starting soon once the baccy weed has cleared. Still plenty of mid week trips available so get in contact if you fancy a trip.

    The weather on Saturday was cool to start but bright, I have been away for what should have been a weeks holiday in Florida but the nice people in Iceland made me stay for an extra 10 days, How bads is that! so it was back to the spring fishing on the East Coast, I had a party of five and almost from the first cast we were in to THORNBACKS, we fished the last of the ebb and all the flood and had 47 THORNBACKS to 10 1/2 lb. Not bad for my first trip back.
