About the Skipper:

Malcolm Collins, Your Skipper, was born in Bournemouth but grew up fishing from beach and boat in the local waters of Hampshire and Dorset. As a member of the Armfield and Ringwood Sea Angling Club in the 1970's he was Junior Champion and still has the award of a plaque, with a hand carved wooden Plaice, presented by John Hardiman. Malcolm also witnessed the 1970's UK Record Bottlenosed Ray of over 70lb that Reg Bulpitt caught off the Isle of Wight. A lifelong commitment followed and fishing from the shore or from his own private small boats the foundations of a future career were forged. In 2001 Malcolm began his lifelong ambition with the purchase of 'Mary Anne', a Ron Berry built 30ft Angling Boat, which he moved from Weymouth to Poole. This was followed several years later by the original 'True Blue' (owned by Steve Porter). 'True Blue' had won Steve the 2001 Sea Angling News Award of Dorset Charter Boat of the Year. In 2004 with support from his Anglers and readers of that publication Malcolm won that same award. The original Suffolk 33 'True Blue' is now renamed 'San Gina II' and operated by their good friend Tom Greasty from Swanage. 'Onamission' followed on from there having been purchased in 2006 as 'Tango Bravo' again from Steve Porter and with Malcolm returning the name of 'True Blue', as a friendly gesture, to Steve Porter to be put on his new Southcat. As the Skipper of 'Mary Anne', 'True Blue' and 'Onamission' many Anglers fishing aboard those boats entered and won awards under the Shimano sponsored SeaAngler Magazine 'Mission Accomplished' Award scheme for Specimen fish. In 2010 Malcolm took a break from Chartering but not before being presented with the August 2009 SeaAngler Magazine Award of UK Top Skipper. In the years between then and now Malcolm has begun another Company and also undertaken further Maritime Courses which mean that in addition to his Angling Charter Boat Skippers Licence he also holds an Unrestricted 60 mile+ Commercial Skippers Licence to operate Commercial Fishing Boats up to 16.5 metres. Only now returning in 2013 to Angling Charters as the new Skipper of 'Just Mary' formerly owned by his friend Mike Taylor who has retired early from Chartering due to a serious motorbike accident.

  • 5-star Dave Gubb (11/09/2016)

    A great day out with Malc on Just Mary. OK so she's not the fastest boat but she's still a fantastic charter boat and Malc certainly knows his stuff. Everyone caught fish and we had some quality as well topped off by a lovely tope that got everyone excited, especially the guys new to fishing. I caught a pb bull huss to add to my own enjoyment of a good days fishing. Malcolm offers a good value days fishing and always does his best to find the target fish. I thoroughly recommend him for all levels of experience and it's refreshing to find a skipper so passionate about what he does.

  • 5-star Nick Setchell (14/08/2016)

    A cracking days fishing with Malcolm providing expert tuition and extremely patient help for all. With his wealth of knowledge he put os on the fish and we caught an array from undulate ray, tope, smoothound and bream to mackerel. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and we will be back! Thanks Malcolm.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Nick, a long way to drive for a day trip (West Mids to Poole) but glad that your group enjoyed their day off the Jurassic Coast, see you in September, thanks, Malc.

  • 5-star Lynda Hughes (15/08/2014)

    Forget Me Not Centre joined Malcolm on Just Mary with 5 people living with dementia to fish for the day. Malcolm supported everyone to quite have the best time possible.. everyone caught fish, which was amazing and thrilling! I was worried that some might not be able to manage but everyone was able to get the hang of it.. mobility, physical disability and cognitive / memory difficulties were not a proble, everything had an easy solution with the righ attitude. A truly wondeful day that will never be forgotten. Thanks so much. Lynda

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you Lynda, hope to see you all again next year onboard 'Just Mary' from Poole, all the best, regards, Malcolm.

    16 Aug 2018 by Malcolm Collins

    Hi All,

    have arrived back in the UK after visiting my family that live abroad to find that the weather has changed very much since I left ! However we will not let this deter us from finding more good fish for our Anglers. August is a good month to begin Inshore fishing on the Spring Tides 'along the front' drifting for Plaice, Gurnard, Bream, etc and Offshore on the Neaps for Tope, Rays and permitting obviously. So we will get going again and get out there amongst the fish.....thanks, Malc.

    9 Jul 2018 by Malcolm Collins

    Hi All, with the lovely calm and hot conditions continuing we are able to push offshore on the Neap tides and yesterday afternoon found us three miles South of the Jurassic Coast on the 32's. After Mackerel in the morning and a few Rays in close we pushed South for the afternoon. Using fresh mackerel and other frozen baits we landed Undulate Ray, Congers and Tope for a mixed group of 'own gear' and 'hire rod' Anglers. An enjoyable day in good company and in glorious weather with flat calm seas only interrupted by the Gin Palaces that seem to want to get as close to us as they can without paying whilst wasting enormous amounts of fuel ! Long may the weather continue.....and the fishing.....ta Malc

    25 Jun 2018 by Malcolm Collins

    Morning All,
    we are still catching a wide variety of species locally with the Black Bream still prominent on the local reefs and more species now appearing consistently. The weather has turned for the better and the Customers are enjoying warm sunny and calm conditions afloat. The Sea is gin clear at present and we are fishing a few deeper marks for that reason. Anglers can expect Bream, Rays, Tope and increasing Mackerel catches soon. So get your bookings in now for when the Football World Cup ends and we can all get out afloat and enjoy the weather, ta Malc.

  • 11/06/2018 Fishing Report by Malcolm Collins

    11 Jun 2018 by Malcolm Collins

    Hi All,

    after weeks of unseasonal Easterly winds, in which we have still managed to land good numbers of fish locally, everything is set to change later this week. By the weekend we should be back to the usual prevailing wind which, for us, is South Westerly and blowing up the English Channel. So we will begin to fish various different local marks after the 'Thursday Blow' and hope to provide more variety of species for your enjoyment. Looking ahead to July, we will start our Plaice trips and after the success of the 'Skippers Traces' last year then we look forward to another good season on the 'Spots'. Look forward to seeing you all soon, ta Malc.

    Hi All, after an extensive six week 'out of the water' refit 'Just Mary' is back in Poole and back on the fish ! A good weekend spent targeting the local Black Bream marks produced good numbers of these migratory fish which apparently were late arriving this year in our waters. So get onboard as soon as you can with only limited opportunity available this month of June, thanks, Malc. Ps. For a more extensive report and pics see our Facebook page of 'Onamission Charters'.
