    Report on-board Flamer IV

    PATIENCE REWARDED - Ray Seddon and crew on their first trip aboard Flamer III and were up for a 10 hour Flatty trip.As I always do I warned them that with flatty fishing it can be a case of being all or nothing but the fish are there.Several hours passed and no plaice were caught and then no turbot but they all concentrated and kept trying.Then in the last two hours seven turbot and a plaice were caught.It was if some one had thrown a switch and told the flatty's to feed.So Rays crew now know that what I said all or nothing regarding flatty fishing is very true.I was so pleased to see them catch as they had been so patient.Dave Beales is pictured with his Personal Best turbot weighing 14Ib 8oz which he caught on the last but one drift of the trip.

    Report on-board Sally Ann Jo

    Finaly the summer arrives, the sun comes out, the sea goes flat and the bream turn up. I had Malcolm McMaconell and his party from up on the Humber out Saturday and Sunday. They thought Saturday was good, catching bream to just over 3lb. Sunday was better, again bream to just over 3lb, over 120 between the 6 of them, Malcolm had 42 himself. Brilliant fishing with a good bunch of anglers who returned the majority of female and smaller fish. Roll on the rest of the summer.

  • 23/05/2010 Fishing Report by Ray Martin on PLAN B (Southend-On-Sea, Essex)

    23 May 2010 by Ray Martin

    Report on-board PLAN B

    Took group of quality anglers from Southend out to a distant mark . Weather was fantastic. Bait was fresh peeler and hermits and quickly hounds started to show, not big about 5lb average. after a couple of hours the sport died along with the tide so we moved further down river and tried our luck again, a few small dogs and whiting on feathers meant for mackerel and then a nice 13.5 hound (see picture) arrived. The tide turned and along with it came rafts of weed, so another move to the spot in the shallows where we caught all the skate the previous day (another secret spot - only 4 other boats there already!)
    Some nice skate caught up to around 7lb about 6 or 7 until the weed became unbearable, so we opted for a bit of mackerel bashing for the last half hour which resulted in about a dozen..

    Report on-board PLAN B

    Saturday 22nd May.
    Took a group of total novices out, what they lacked in skill they made up in enthusiasm. The weather was supposed to be hot but it started off very overcast and gray.
    We went to a secret lower river mark (only 2 boats already on it!) and got on the hounds straight away..all falling to large hermit baits, strangely none took squid. We had about 10 but as the tide sacked off I decided to move off to deeper water to try to get a few skate. No bites at all, so moved into shallows for first of flood and caught about 15 skate, best one 10lb (all returned to play another day) a few more hounds plus dogs taking the fish baits intended for skate.
    Photo's to follow, my camera ran out of memory, only got one picture of a 7lb hound (the best one was 9.5)
