    Brian Martin and crew joined Flamer IV for their first flatty trip of the year.How ever the first fish to come aboard was a superb 18Ib Spurdog caught by Mick Jeffery whilst drifting for Turbot. The big Spur is a Personal Best for Mick. The crew also caught their target species Plaice and Turbot during the day.Tony Jenkins caught the biggest Plaice weighing 4Ib (pictured). Andy Ellis a Carp angler at heart did well catching Plaice and a 5Ib Turbot.To the crews credit they returned all eight of the Turbot they caught back to the sea to grow bigger.

    In April you can expect to see catches of Turbot and Brill on the Famous Shambles Bank and now is the time for that BIG TURBOT. Plaice will feature on the mussell beds and although they are a bit thin at this time of the year there is still a good chance of 5Ib plus fish.
    The Reefs and Banks will produce Blonde and Undulate Rays along with Spurdogs,Bull Huss,Smooth Hounds, Congers etc and may be some Black Bream . The Wrecks should be good for Pollack, Ling and a Cod or two..

    The fishing on the Wrecks still continues to be very good, producing some excellent Ling and Pollack catches.Also the first Cod are starting to show.On a recent trip John Billett broke his Personal Best Ling record three times which finished with a 20Ib 15oz Ling as his best PB, John was using a Norwegian Herring Lure.Colin Gardiner age 70 something landed three Ling weighing 14Ib 8oz,16Ib 8oz and 18Ib 12oz in successive drops and understandably needed a little rest after pulling up that lot.Lady angler Nicky Trigg did well landing plenty of Polllack up to 12Ib and a 13Ib 8oz LIng,she also caught the first Cod of the year to be caught on Flamer IV during a wrecking trip. Trevor Lockyer had the best Ling of the day a 23 pounder (pictured).
    Lures - Bubble Gum Pink Red Gills are out fishing any other lures for the Pollack and Ling are also being caught on them.

    In April you can expect to see catches of Turbot and Brill on the Famous Shambles Bank and now is the time for that BIG TURBOT. Plaice will feature on the mussell beds and although they are a bit thin at this time of the year there is still a good chance of 5Ib plus fish.

  • 5-star John Billett (05/04/2015)

    Colin, just a quick review to say thanks for the fantastic trip on Easter Sunday, got to be the best wrecking trip I have ever been on, beating my ling PB three times on a cutbait herring was the icing on the cake. For anyone reading this I would highly recommend Colin as a skipper he’s always friendly whether newcomer or regular and he will always do his best to put you onto fish. This last trip was a fine example, plenty of pollack and a couple of ling on lures from the first wreck, a couple of fishless drifts and we were off to another wreck for a repeat of the first. Fishing slowed again and Colin decided to revisit the first wreck again as the tide was dropping and there would be an opportunity to fish for ling. Well a few drifts to locate the fish and then it was back to the hotspot every time with fish caught or lost on most drifts. Couple the action with the brilliant weather and you get the stuff that memories are made of….. and if your memory is as poor as mine there are always the photographs that Colin sends you as a reminder.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks for review John. It was a pleasure as always to have you on board Flamer IV.

  • 5-star Terence Groves (04/08/2014)

    This was my first trip with Colin on the Flamer i have fished with other boats at Weymouth but this trip was for big Plaice something i hadnt done before i saw the trip on Flamer4fishing website well worth looking at it if you thinking of a fishing trip from Weymouth,from booking the boat to the advice given i could not fault Colin he was very helpful in every way the trip was fantastic plenty of big plaice which we had targeted & the the whole experiance 1st class will be looking at some trips for next year as i couldnt fault the trip we had .

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Terrance(Terry) and I look forward to seeing you on Flamer IV again.

  • 5-star Trevor Pegg (19/05/2014)

    FLAMER 1V 5 DAY ANGLING BREAK. The opportunity to fish 5 straight days on Flamer 1V is not one to be missed. It affords last minute decisions to be made as the weather changes and we took the the rare chance to fish for several for seveal species from pollack on live sand eel to black sea bream, where the fishing was electric on light gear. The minute you step on board you know where you are with Colin, he just never stops working to find fish for his crew. At the end of the day, rather than a long drive home, a 5 minute walk to a B&B has to be the icing on the cake. Then in the evening the social side and the chance to relax in good company is a bonus as is eating in Colin,s favourite chinese restaurant with its "special puddings". A great week,s fishing with good company and an excellent skipper. Thanks Colin.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Trevor, I am glad you enjoyed the trip and I am looking forward to seeing you and the boys on the 2015 Angling Break that is already planned and booked.

  • 5-star keith butwell (15/05/2014)

    Nick and I would like to thank you for a couple of cracking days fishing. Between us we managed to catch Cod, Pollock, Ling, Bass, Undulate rays, Small eyed ray, Blonde ray, Bullhuss, Turbot and good few Doggies. Top skipper who knows his stuff and we both look forward to going out with you again

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Keith it was a pleasure to have you and Nick on Flamer IV catching fish and the banter was great as well.

  • 5-star Richard Helliwell (04/05/2014)

    A great day out going after turbot, brill and plaice. We didnt catch but others on the boat did and we probably had the best day out of the Weymouth boats. We will be back to try again! many thanks to Colin for his help and his humour

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Richard and I look forward to seeing you on Flamer IV again soon.
