    Now into July when anglers may keep one bass per day 42cm in length, has caused few problems over past months but we dont make the laws as skippers we just have to enforce them unpaid for the task i might add! We have kept away from our bass grounds to avoid these situations having lost saturday 1st july to the weather decided to try on the banks for bass. Paid off with Dave Jones pictured here with a cracking 9 pounder fish was returned unharmed, great to see conservation Dave top marks mate. was a personal best for Dave who also caught few weeks ago our biggest smoothound to date of 15lb another PB for him. Day wasnt fantastic but managed smoothounds and still pesky whiting about was bit limited due to the lumpy conditions but was a good day enjoyed it. Big thanks to everyone hoping to see few more crackers soon time will tell.
    Tight lines everyone.

    Bringing us up to date weekend of 17th /18th June 2017 spent the calm weather and sunny conditions offshore a bit, plenty of joey mackerel and sandeels couple gurnards on the feathers nice to see. Everyone enjoys feathering even me! Usual weavers a pain nice to have a scorpion fish onboard dont often see them nowdays. i lost first tope just ripped bait of the hook, second tope came in at 41lb best of the day. Next tope was 35lb then finished with a 28lb nice bit of action. Hero of the day was Stephen Clark pictured here well done Mr sore arms and to me for pulling the buggers aboard not getting bitten this time! Ended up the day inshore where everyone caught smoothies and doggies to finish day off. Was a cracking day weatherwise few sunburnt customers but smiley faces. Great day lads thanks to all of you.
    If you fancy a specialist tope session get your name down with me will look at right tides dates and options and go from there until then tight lines people.

    Bringing us up to date fishing has vastly improved the skate seem to be about not in great numbers but enough. Well done to all my anglers for returning them think weve kept 2 in total also the smoothounds. Picture today is Dave Jones with our boat record smoothound of 15lb well deserved as Dave is one of our most regular anglers who has supported the High Flyer through all seasons it couldnt have gone to a more deserving person. Well done mate. No mackerel yet on the feathers or tope still bit early but we will keep after them concentrating on the smoothounds crab being most effective bait at the moment. Spotty diogs a pain at the moment still catching some large whiting inshore another pain but adds to the sport. As we head into mid to late June will be out on the banks then ready for few bass July 1st when we will start fishing for them. Night trips will be organised soon bit blowy this coming week will keep eye on weather for that. Dates filling up at weekends so get in for summer trips now or they will be gone midweek generally ok. So roll on warmer weather clearer water polish those pirks wont be long. Until then tight lines everyone. Jon (High Flyer)

    Had a great days fishing the weather couldn`t have been better for the North sea , Jon the skipper is a great host with plenty of sound advice and practical help for us novices , nothing was too much trouble and he`s very easy going , also providing a never ending flow of tea/coffee , snacks and some ropey jokes I would definitely be using this charter boat again and would recommend it for both novices and the more experienced sea anglers .
    Regards Jim Taylor

    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)

  • 5-star Carl Pankhurst (04/06/2017)

    Me and Ed had another excellent day on the High Flyer, the banter flowing as much as the tea and biscuits, I started off a little slow then catching good sized Smooth Hounds, Dogs as well as good sized Whiting, Ed however only catching small whiting, I and the rest of the lads found this very amusing (sorry Ed but size does matter). If anyone is looking for a great day out fishing then the High Flyer is the boat to be on.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Carl appreciate you guys driving that distance, nice to see boat record smoothound that day shame it didnt bite on Eds line!!! Look forward to next one mate. Cheers Jon (High Flyer)
