    Photo of the Fishing Report

    Peter Chillingworth and crew joined Flamer IV for a two day Angling Break and did a day's Reef/Bank fishing catching Black Bream, Rays etc on day one and on day two went Wrecking and caught Pollack and Cod along with some Bass which of course under the current EU rules all had to be returned. The disturbing fact was that only half the Bass returned swam away to be caught no doubt by a commercial vessel who can keep them, the rest floated away dead as they did recover coming up form a depth of 140 feet. What a waste, So much for conservation. Pictured Is Ian Wright with a 10Ib 9oz Cod he caught on a Red Gill Lure.

    Weymouth Angling Breaks -
    A few days away fishing out of Weymouth along with the social side is a nice trip to do.The variety of fishing and the amount of different species caught at Weymouth is probably second to none.There are plenty of places to stay which are angler friendly and some excellent places to wine and dine around the harbour and in Weymouth Town centre.
    If you want to try a Weymouth Angling Break then contact me, I cater for whole boat charters and individuals.
    Planning your trip well in advance is essential you need to arrange your boat booking and your accommodation as early as possible to avoid disappointment, some of my regular groups plan their trips at least 12 months in advance, this allows them to discuss with me the best tides for the type of fishing they are targeting.

    A Brill time was had by all on the latest Flatty Trip on Flamer IV. The successful rigs were two hook flowing traces with size 4/0 Sakuma Stinger hooks baited with Mackerel strip or Launce Fillet. A special mention for Graham Broach from Plymouth on his first trip aboard Flamer IV and a Turbot and Brill virgin, he caught one of each weighing 15Ib 13oz and 3Ib 5oz respectfully and was well pleased to say the least.

    Pictured are David Gibson 13Ib 4oz Turbot and Graham Broach 15Ib 13oz Turbot both fish were caught on the same drift.

    FLATTY TRIPS - the next flatty trips with places available are on June 3rd, 16th, 22nd, 23rd, July 16th.

    Excellent day out with Colin on Flamer IV, in fact is was the same trip the Graham Broach had his 15lb 13oz Trurbot. I managed several turbot and a couple of Brill all of which were released except one, A Turbot of 13lbs 4 ozs which came home with me for the table. Always great fun on the Flamer IV with Colin, loads of leg pulling with laughter. Colin serves up Tea, Coffee, Soup and Oxo regularly during the day and often has a slice of cake for his anglers as a special treat. Lokking forward to my next day out with Colin Penny on the Flamer IV.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Dave I look forward to seeing you on Flamer IV soon with some special cake for you!

  • 5-star Graham Broach (19/05/2016)

    As a turbot and brill 'virgin', I wanted to catch one of each & did - 15lb 13oz & 3lb 5oz! Great skipper!

    Skippers Reponse: You did well Graham and you were a pleasure to have on Flamer IV C U soon

  • 5-star Jamie Watts (01/09/2015)

    Having fished over 30 years & been out with numerous skippers, Colin is one of the best. Moving to find the fish, always willing to impart his knowledge of local waters and offer help & advice, being attentive towards the needs of newer anglers especially, Colin is a great skipper and king of the flatfish. You'll have a laugh & might be lucky enough to get a bit of Mrs Penney's legendary cake, as well as a PB!!

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Jamie and I hope to see you on Flamer IV again soon for some fish and cake.

  • 5-star Matthew Wood (17/10/2015)

    We had a great day abourd Flamer IV. The boat is clean, modern and spacious. Colin and his crew were very friendly and made us welcome. My friend hasn't fished for a number of years and was helped when needed throughout the day. He also hired rod and reel from Colin that was of very good quality. The fishing and whether was challenging but Colin worked hard to put us on a variety of species including my first Turbot. I will defiantly be bookin again soon.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Mathew I am glad you enjoyed your day on Flamer IV and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

  • 5-star David Gibson (07/09/2015)

    I was crewing for Colin on day two of Trevor Fennessy's trip. The Facts Are: This booking was transfered from Meerkat to Flamer IV on my recommendation as I was unfit to carry out the booking. So Trevor did not book the boat based on reviews, in fact he did not book the boat AT ALL, it was organised by Roger Chase! On day two the wind was moderate Easterly with the forcast for the rest of the week going East to South-East Strong (force 5-6). There were 3 of the 7 anglers already sea sick on this day, so Colin advised them about the options for days, 3, 4 and 5. The group decided to hold a meeting on the evening of day 2 to discuss the options and let Colin know there decision. The organiser rang Colin to let him know that they had decided they wanted to cancel the last three days. The only boats that did go to sea on days 3, 4 and 5, were all participating in the WIBAC competition and would have gone out in any event, even if they ended up fishing behind the breakwaters in Portland Harbour. In fact it is not unknown for the WIBAC comp to be held in Weymouth Harbour when the winds are howling from the East or South-East! This is a classic case of SOUR GRAPES and shame on you Trevor for posting this crap!!
