    My first day this year on the turbot with Colin. As always you know that from the moment you step aboard, Colin never stops working for his crew. His recent award of Skipper of the Month is justly deserved. Once again he managed fo find the fish and showed why he is one of the best skippers on the south west. Thanks Colin

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Trevor, I look forward to seeing you later this month for your annual 5 day angling break.

  • 5-star Russell Salmon (01/04/2017)

    Many thanks to Colin and everyone on board Flamer 4 for making my 2 day 60th birthday bash such a great time. Whilst the fishing was hard on both days Colin worked hard to put us on fish and some very nice fish caught and in some cases lost. Colin was his usual supportive self to those who lost decent fish, especially to John B who after about 20 mins lost his battle with what we think was a big blonde playing in the tide

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks for the Thanks Russell, can't wait for your 61st birthday bash. I am now taking bookings for 2018.

    My first trip Bank and Reef trip with Colin on Flamer IV, what a day it turned out to be. Colin anchored past Portland Bill. With only two anglers on-board, Ian Slater had the run of the deck (Ian was a first rate companion - I learnt a lot). After Skipper Colin caught a couple of Blonde rays and doggies, it was Ian's turn next to pull the Blondes. After 2 hours of anxious watching/waiting I decided to join the catching club (after a bit of gentle ribbing by the skipper). First a doggie (at least on the scoreboard) followed by 4 Blondes - 4/12/13 and 24 pounds: 1 x 5lb Small eyed ray. We stayed the whole day at this anchorage and fishing the compass all the way round as the tide turned. As the tide peaked and ebb started, Tope moved in with my best at a modesty 6lb but it was my very first of the species as were the Blondes. Overall the trip was my best ever on a charter boat. Colin is a superb skipper, the boat immaculate and well fitted out with state of the art safety/navigation and fish finding electronics. The coffee was coming on a regular basis. Thank you Colin and Flamer IV for a fantastic trip from Weymouth = Regards Colin Johnson Northampton

  • 12/05/2019 Fishing Report by Colin Penny

    12 May 2019 by Colin Penny

    A morning session at anchor on a Bank produced some fine Blonde Rays which gave the anglers a right old tug on their tackle.
    The successful bait was calamari squid and mackerel cocktails on pennel rigs of Sakuma Manta hooks.

    Pictured is Bill Oliver with the 16Ib Blonde Ray he caught which set a new Personal Best fior Bill. The Ray was retuned alive to grow bigger.

    Gary Stone, Keith and Luke Williams travelled from Swansea to fish out of Weymouth for the first time and booked Flamer IV exclusivley for them selves. Lovely weather mean't the plan of Wreck fishing in the morning and drifting the Shambles Bank in the afternoon could be done. The guys enjoyed their day catching Bass,Pollack and Turbot.
