    Today was great weather for once nice weak tides took advantage and headed out with DXB water Company and lads from Brentwood Essex, our first mark was already fished by commercial liner so had to move but managed few nice smoothounds with the pesky spotty dogs as usual. Still cant shake the whiting but all adds to the sport. At slack we moved out onto the 4 mile mark plenty of small smoothounds and doggies again ended up with a number of skate best pictured here with Howard todays winner just under 13.5lb nice fish. Looking like the better size smoothies are making a show now peeler crab if you can get it proving best bait. Will be doing few more evening trips soon so lookout for them if your interested. Big thanks to Derek for todays trip much appreciated looking forward to our next jolly next month always a pleasure to see you guys.
    Cheers Jon (High Flyer)

    Bit of a lumpy start today so plans for offshore banks scuppered armed with fresh herrings and longlining sqiud
    had to stay inshore and make the most of it. Headed north of yarmouth to little group of holes i like spotty dogs from the start and still the dreaded whiting, and after seeing in the first hour of the ebb decided to move the weed just killing us. Headed back south again much calmer too, first skate came in to Tristan (Stevanage) weighed 7.5lb next one followed to Mike of 10.7lb (Wisbech) returned fish not to be out dione mate Micky (Hertfordshire) with just over6lb also returned and first timer Dale (Local) with his first skate ever of 8.5lb and lastly Will Duncan local regular with todays biggest 11.11lb also returned pictured here on todays report. Spotty dogs and whting throughout the day no smoothies for us today or flatties wasnt too bad for a windy old day lucky for us wind with tide!
    Would like to thank everyone today for coming out on the High Flyer especially those making the long journey also the two girls onboard first timer Emma and regular Tess for putting up with our male banter!
    Nice to see few skate making a show also nice to see conservation of fish well done to the lads for returning them. Top marks. Until next time tight lines everyone.
    PS. Camera picture has last years 2016 date on as i am a useless numpty but has now been amended!!!!

    Well been a hard winters fishing with the lack of cod thank god the whiting have been here to fill in the gap pain at times but least we were catching. There still about but change in the weather with it warming up our friends the spotty dogs have shown up makes a nice change from one pest to another! getting the odd spring codling these last few days time will tell if we get a run or not. Caught first small smoothound today nice to see early for us by about a month but no skate as yet. Report of vessel just up from us having one today so hoping to see a showing soon. Weather allowing will be targeting the skate on the banks this week spaces this wed 5th April still if anyone fancies it please ring or text. Give thought to any future trips your planning as dates are starting to go and especially weekend slots. Specialised trips as bass or tope most popular dont forget our evening sessions as well. I will always make up a trip so if only a few of you want to go on a particular day no probs will advertise to cover costs by getting few more places sold. Thought i would remind you of our leaflet and other literature available free of charge just email text or ring with your details will send out to you. Website up to date daily so reliable any queries or questions please get in touch.
    Looking forward to my favourite time of year generally better weather and bigger fish come and join us on the High Flyer for a great day out. Until then tight lines everyone,

    Bringing us up to date been hard work over the previous weeks having to contend with all the bad weather, storm Doris etc every time offshore planned to try for spurdogs the weather turns! Inside we have been plagued with whiting of all sizes good job really as the cod just havent turned up this year for us only the odd fish here and there, Remains to be seen in the coming weeks whether we will get a spring codling run all we can do is keep going and keep trying. I would like to say to all the anglers who keep coming not only supporting the High Flyer, every other charter vessel out there as we know its hard up and down the country at the moment ,we do appreciate it. Someones got to be first to catch them why not you? Looking ahead if we can get out offshore, wont be this mid week on the forcast possibly this weekend we have got 7 places this sat 4th March due to cancellation if anyone interested please get in touch. Until then leave it with you roll on the summer i say! Cheers Jon (High Flyer)

    Yet another good day out on High Flyer, my third trip out twelve days! A short motor out to the first mark,as the fish Jon knew to be close to the shore. Again some new faces and some familiar ones, three guy's from Cambridgeshire, new to sea fishing were soon up and running with Jon and "old hand" Chris's ( sorry for the "old" Chris ) helpful experience. Bathed in glorious sunshine, with a gentle breeze, Chris ( the "old hand" ☺ ) landed the first of the Skate of the day ( all Skate returned, nice to witness ) unfortunately as the tide run strengthened we were plagued by that very fine sea weed that forms small balls on the line, I'm sure that it has some fancy Latin name,but l gave it some plain English ones of my own !! We moved to our only second mark of the day, again Jon's local knowledge, weed free, producing some good sport for the Cambridgeshire lads and getting their personal sweepstake under way. Slack tide saw a short run of Smoothhounds before wind over tide conditions requiring that we should call an end to the day's play. Thanks to Jon and Chris for the up tide instruction, as I usually dangle over the blunt end for tangle free fishing, Cheers guys . Lee Weston
