    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)

    Great day today weather wise decided to take advantage and head out in search for tope as requested. Started off with a bit of feathering the mackerel not thick bit patchy, the sandeels came in all the while. Few flatties and weavers to add. I caught small cod over a wreck nice stocking filler. After filling the tubs we decided to drift for bass wind spun the boat in a circle bit of a pain so anchored up just off the rough water in 60ft. First tope was the smallest 16lb , then a 19lb followed by a 20lb and finally picture here of Chris Merrison with todays biggest of 30lb, we boated four and lost three others pity really. Big thanks to Chris Morgan for organising the lads from Bedford,Chris, Melvin,John , also regulars Barry ,Gareth,and Chris and finally another Chris Kilpatrick with his first tope ever well done men. So after a confusing day with four Chris,s on the boat today was most enjoyable look forward to seeing you all soon. Cheers men, Jon (High Flyer)

    Bringing us up to date had weak tides so divers on most of the week been out 30 miles still very poor for mackerel just caught whiting on the feathers! Viz is great so might throw a wrecking trip next weak tides if anyone interested? Picture this week is of the lads from Spalding organised by Carl Knights big thanks to him,everyone first time on the High Flyer nice to see new faces was reasonably hard fishing very blowy so inshore glad we got a few fish . Look forward to seeing you boys in winter hopefully much appreciated.

    Tides building for this week out Thursday for bass i would imagine on these tides ,only couple places left hopefully jig for sandeel then bit of drifting could do with a tope to be honest so guess what i.ll be doing!

    Facebook seems to be busy have two pages JON OLD-HIGH FLYER and also HIGH FLYER SEA FISHING TRIPS if you wish to join and a new local page NORFOLK BOAT ANGLERS please ask if you wish to join,brainchild of local legend Steve Gus whiting regular on the Flyer.

    So small heatwave this week hopefully might get a mackerel or two about time , will keep you updated , must do few evening trips contact me if interested will put trips together,until then tight lines people.
    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.
