    Well summers gone looking forward to snow and ice with hot soups on the go and hopefully those lovely cod turning up for us thats what winters all about in my book! Few skate at the moment showing up as they do for about a month here, plenty of whiting i,m afraid some crackers among them to be honest. Few spotty dogs and the odd smoothound still coming in will be glad to see them go so we know the water temperature will have dropped letting our cod friends come in still bit warm at the mo. Reports of codling not too far away facebook pictures telling the stories unfortunately none for us as yet but i think after a few frosts and you can feel that nip in the air now at night it wont be long now. Keep an eye on our evening trips that we will be running for night cod fishing inshore or if you have a party and want to organise get in touch for best tides. I say this every year and get bored of it but think ahead for trips if you need a weekend still places available but soon as the first cod appear bookings go ballistic and you cant always get on at the weekends. New set of Akios reels onboard and new GX2 boat rods next week looking forward to using them , trips still same price £45 per person using your own tackle add £5 using our gear covers losses/replacement. All bait supplied but for this year due to worm costs i would say bring a handfull for yourself if you wish to use lug all day unfortunately with free lug people seem to make huge great baits waste alot and spoil it for others shame really. So looking forward to start of the cod season hopefully see you soon stocking up on the coup of soups!! Tight lines .

    Bringing us up to date to weekend of 10/11 Sep 2017, have gone from catching some amazing tope action on the banks to last couple of weeks struggling as summer fish moving off and the dreaded winter whiting showing up! The odd decent smoothound still about and few spotty dogs inshore still and pictured here small roker caught by first timer on the Flyer Artur from Norwich returned for another day. We find these skate return for around a month and then disappear so hopefully will be getting a few from now on till weather turns and we see the codling return. If your planning a weekend trip for cod and need a Sat or Sun please get in as quite a few dates have gone already some partially booked as well dont leave it till last minute. We will try do more evenings this winter as weather allows as we dont have to go far and usually wind drops so look out for those, home by midnight leave about 6pm. So will see what happens rest of this month bit mish and mash but always is until then tight lines everyone. Jon (High Flyer)

    Bringing us up to date been bashing the tope as you can see picture today of Barry regular on High Flyer with his first ever tope , went off like a train thought it was alot bigger due to fight put up. All tope returned unharmed with wire hooks that rust out in case of snapoffs conservation a big part now in tope fishing. The feathering producing thousands of sandeels which this particular tope was caught on, mackerel been patchy for us, few gurnards and weavers and odd flatty thrown in. The bass gone off the boil just the odd one or two at the moment plenty of smoothies still about even tiny little pups still. Best fish(tope) at the moment stands at 31lb fell to Karl Bird from lincs hopefully heavier ones lurking around time will tell keep eye on website and our facebook page under ( Jon Old High flyer ) or (High Flyer Sea Fishing Trips). will be trying up to the weekend for few more tope weather permitting so see what happens if you fancy your hand at catching one of these let me know will make few more trips up, until then tight lines everyone.

    Aug 1st 2016 bringing us up to date , steamed out ten miles offshore to a favourite mark of mine the weather perfect, bit of strong tides start of the springs but we coped well i thought. Started off fishing for tope straight away with mackerel from previous day Tom caught first one of 28lb nice fish unfortunately grazed and rubbed all skin off his arm little bit of claret but hes hard! Slack water approaced so feathers out for the usual tons of sandeels, few mackerel still not thick, plenty of weavers and nice little gurnards too with odd flatty about. After slack Fishing was a bit tough in the tide has couple of runs which amounted to nothing ended up doing a bit of bassing on the drift but no bass today . Only other boated tope was todays picture of Chris first tope for him so though be nice to show weighed in at 25lb leaving him tottally knackered and needing a tea! Used the new tailer today pleased with that as very angry customers these tope like to bite anything onboard so count your toes afterwards! wasnt the most productive of days tope wise but ok for the tides and feathers made up for it, big thanks to Steve for organising the trip Tom and Chris and first timers Brett , Andy and Nathan much appreciated men look forward to next time. Cheers Jon (High Flyer)

  • 5-star Karl Bird (09/08/2016)

    Excellent, friendly skipper and always good banter on the boat. Jon goes out of his way to make sure everyone has fun and tries to put people on fish. Unfortunately the fish out of Yarmouth often have other ideas, but that's fishing! I had my first tope with Jon at 31lb and first Smoothound too and look forward to other species throughout the year.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Karl, always remember your first tope! Cracking fish well done, see you for some cod this winter. Cheers Jon.
