  • 02/07/2010 Fishing Report by David Hancock on Excel 2 (Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire)

    2 Jul 2010 by David Hancock

    Report on-board Excel 2

    The fishing has been awesome inshore at Ramsgate with catches in excess of 40 Thornback rays on some recent trips. Its good to see a growing amount of anglers are keeping just a few and returning lots as these fish are slow breeders and go back quite happily.
    The smoothounds seem to be slowing down at the moment but are more than compensated by the numbers of Bass. It seems at the moment that a bumper year is on the cards despite the mackeral shoals being finicky.

    On one of our popular evening trips Katje and Lilly both caught nice skate of 6 to 9 lb then the boys redeemed themselves by catching a bass or two on the way back to port.

    Happy Days,
    Dave.

    Here we go then people, Summer is officially started as boated our first Blue Shark of the year on Sun 27th (est 70lb) then followed it up with an 85lb er on Mon. There does seem to be a few about as the few boats that are trying are having success. Congers have settled into summer feeding mode and a sign of a few more Pollack getting about.

  • 15/06/2010 Fishing Report by Sam Cumming on Silver Spray (Poole, Dorset)

    15 Jun 2010 by Sam Cumming

    Report on-board Silver Spray

    The summer season is well and truly underway out of Poole now with shorts, t-shirts and plenty of sun block accompanying most trips. The fishing is following suit with bream catches off the Purbecks pecking in the 120’s and reaching a plump 3lb 14oz. We are happy to report all female bream, no matter the size, have been returned alive as it is there breeding season. Thanks to all the anglers for cooperating with this. We look forward to more good bream catches both inshore and offshore later on in the autumn.



    After another two Alderney trips we are pleased to report that the catches of turbot and brill on the banks have stayed on a par with the first trip. The biggest turbot being a new personal best for Colin Jones at 11lb 4oz and another 100% specimen brill falling to Paul Bainbridge. The banks fishing on this side of the channel has produced the biggest fish with a 19lb turbot following last months 23lber. This fish was one of 9 caught by John Tisdale and Ian Wilkinson from Cornwall.



    The wrecking has really been the highlight of the summer so far for us with the Pollack continuing in numbers well into the double figures on artificial lures. The cod have started to show in numbers on the brittle stars with fish around the 15lb mark not uncommon. Good hits have also come off the wrecks. One wreck producing 50 fish to 24lb on the return journey from Alderney, the best day of quality cod fishing the boat has had. These fish have also been accompanied by ling to 24lb, some surprise deep water brill to 8lb and congers on the slack. The biggest of which is the largest the boat has ever seen measuring at 7ft 5ins long and 24ins in girth. Unfortunately we did not have a set of scales big enough to weigh her properly so she was returned alive to fight another day. We would be pleased to receive any information on how to estimate weight from measurements on big conger.

    The first bassing trips of the season got underway with the fish being slightly smaller than usual but in good numbers. With large amounts of joey mackerel showing both inshore and in deeper waters we are certain the bigger fish shall not be far behind.

  • 28/06/2010 Fishing Report by Bob Marshall on Duke IV (Ramsgate, Kent)

    28 Jun 2010 by Bob Marshall

    Report on-board Duke IV

    The weather Gods are smiling on us here at Ramsgate with calm seas and plenty of sunshine, this all makes the fishing so pleasant, the fish are playing ball too!
    We are getting good catches of Thornback Ray from the many banks in our area, the Bass are shoaling and we are catching some quality Smoothounds.
    Mackerel are also around but not in the numbers we would expect at this time of the year, this is the second year where they are relatively thin on the ground, could this be due to bad luck or possibly something more serious like overfishing in other areas?
    I keep thinking of the thousands of tonnes being trawled in the north of Scotland! Could these Mackerel have been making their way south?
    July and August are probably the best months of the year to try for large Bass using whole squid or large mackerel baits. Pick a large tide and sit in the rips around the North Foreland or up in the Thames Estuary, be patient and you may be rewarded with a double figure fish! Please bare in mind these fish will be females, with huge spawning potential so to return them is a great service to the future Bass stocks and great to see them swim off after a quick picture!
    Malcolm Andersons crew from Corby landed 17 Thornbacks on Duke IV, releasing most of them unharmed, this followed a tough day on the wrecks so well done chaps, hope you enjoyed your trip to Ramsgate!
