  • 09/04/2010 Fishing Report by Gethyn Owen on My Way 2 (Holyhead, Isle of Anglesey)

    9 Apr 2010 by Gethyn Owen

    Report on-board My Way 2

    With a nice ridge of high pressure coinciding with neap tides, the fishing off Holyhead has come alive quite nicely. Whilst on the drift, pollack averaging a few lb have been located under the rock ledges of the Island and also near Holyhead’s Famous breakwater, some early ballan and cuckoo wrasse are adding to the drifts.

    Inshore anchor has seen an array of smaller species including dogs, whiting, codling and dabs etc. Whilst offshore in Holyhead Deep, far more double figure huss have come over the gunwales than you can count. Every bite appears to produce a decent fish, when not on a huss we have also had spurs and a few nice 20lb+ tope adding to the excitement.

    With more settled weather ahead of us, I hope you enjoy you fishing in the weeks ahead.

  • 13/04/2010 Fishing Report by Sam Cumming on Silver Spray (Poole, Dorset)

    13 Apr 2010 by Sam Cumming

    Report on-board Silver Spray

    The banks fishing off Poole has continued to be excellent with good catches of blonde rays and spurdogs. There have also been some nice cod and congers in the mix as well. Over the last weekend James Howarth from Christchurch decided to have a trip afloat instead of his usual carp fishing. He managed 2 spurs the best of which was weighed at 20lb before being returned alive. This fish was very close to the Wessex record fish of 20lb 7oz which we caught on the same mark last year. James mate Tristan added a 12lb cod so that there was something for supper! Our best blonde ray this month was a 24lb caught by Greg David from Wantage.

    When the weather has permitted we have ventured up to 40 miles offshore to fish on the wrecks. There have been good numbers of Pollack caught on artificial lures. Dave Faulker had a cracking fish of 17lb 8oz on a blue sidewinder. He followed it up with a 13lber on the next drift! Kelvin Hindmarch from Overton had a great ling of 29lb on a wreck 20 miles to the SW of Poole. We have only just found this one and it has tremendous potential for congers which seem to be everywhere on the ground around the wreckage. The best congers this month have reached the 50lb mark but there are bigger ones to come.

    The first bream have been reported and numbers are expected to increase with the warmer weather. We are also expecting the turbot fishing to take off soon.

  • 10/04/2010 Fishing Report by Paul Fitch on She Likes It Rough 2 (Shotley, Suffolk)

    10 Apr 2010 by Paul Fitch

    Report on-board She Likes It Rough 2

    SAT 10TH APRIL
    Our first Pollock of the season were caught. A successful trip landing 20 Pollock biggest fell to Stevie at 11lb 8oz with another couple pushing 9lb also being caught. Most fish fell to sidewinder lures and jellyworms. No big cod as yet on the wrecks biggest on the day was 8lb but plenty were caught. As the month progresses we should see the clearer water pushing closer in to us, and hopefully some better cod thrown in as well.

  • 04/2010 Fishing Report by Pete Rose on Sea Urchin IIl (Whitby, North Yorkshire)

    Apr 2010 by Pete Rose

    Report on-board Sea Urchin IIl

    On Friday and Saturday I decided to steam off to distant grounds as the inshore fishing was poor of late also the weather was perfect flat sea and blue sky both days, Friday I had Karl from Pickering with a small group who chartered the entire boat and I explained the inshore fishing situation they agreed the only realistic chance of getting in the prizes was to try some distant ground and wrecks to the east and at the limit of my licence range, after an epic journey and a few stops at some unknown wrecks which produced the odd fish we arrived and the fishing was much better than recent inshore trips but nothing of any size we had around 15 or 20 fish cod to around 7lb pollock to 4lb and some large whitings around 2lb mark we only had a few hours fishing and had to head for home,
    Saturdays anglers Clinton and Chris from chesterfield were told the same story and they also agreed a steam was the sensible option this time I diced ed to work a few wrecks north around 18mls away and this time as soon as we arrived all the rods were in which gave everyone a smile after the long but sunny steam the day produced around the same 20 fish or so with cod the most common after a change of tide the fish stopped feeding so I headed for some wrecks around 12mls off which produced nothing neither did the 9 mile ground so all in all not a bad two days in the present scheme of things roll on summer

  • 09/04/2010 Fishing Report by Bob Marshall on Duke IV (Ramsgate, Kent)

    9 Apr 2010 by Bob Marshall

    Report on-board Duke IV


    Fishing on Duke IV now much improved with the arrival of the summer species. This along with the spring run of Cod and Thornbacks we are keeping the angler’s busy! Also being caught are some quality Whiting and Dabs!
    Smoothounds and Bass, although mostly small are here and feeding so by moving about we can have a good mixed bag of fish!
    Some large Bass being landed in the nets, it would appear that these fish are travelling so not interested in our baits, mores the pity!
    The Cod will be moving off to the wrecks by the end of the month to join the Pollack that will be there already. Shads, Redgills and jellyworms are the way to fish the wrecks here off Ramsgate with Hokkies and pirks on the banks.
    A Ramsgate restaurant was recently offering local caught Halibut steaks, getting ready to report them to trading standards under the Bulldung heading I was surprised to find that a local netting boat actually landed the fish, weighing 65lb just three miles out from the harbour, this same boat has also landed some good Turbot and Brill, so they are here, just got to get em on rod&line!

  • 15/03/2010 Fishing Report by Sam Cumming on Silver Spray (Poole, Dorset)

    15 Mar 2010 by Sam Cumming

    Report on-board Silver Spray

    March Report

    On the banks the fishing has continued to be excellent on the neap tides with plenty of blonde rays, congers and big spurdogs. We have also had some bonus pollack, cod and bass to go with the main catch. Sky sports have made a film of our banks fishing and you can see this soon on Tight Lines which is broadcast on Friday evenings. While presenter Andy Ford and the film crew were aboard we had cod to 15lb, congers to 35lb and 10 spurdogs all in double figures. It will be shown on Tight lines Friday 9th April at 18.30 on Sky Sports 2

    The plaice have started to appear on the Shambles and the best was a lovely fish of 4lb 8oz which fell to Bournemouth angler Dave Jensen. Turbot have been slow which is perhaps linked to the shortage of sandeels. We managed 1 eel in 2 20 minute tows. The water seems to be too cold and the eels are still buried in the sand. On the offshore wrecks we have found a few Pollack to 14lb and congers to 50lb.

    We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the bream in April together with the turbot on the banks and increasing numbers of Pollack and cod on the offshore wrecks.
