    WOW!!! Lewis is such a competent, capable & enthusiastic young Skipper.
    Steaming out into Lyme Bay in the early morning sunshine after a couple of days of bad weather our small crew quickly bonded & eagerly anticipated our 8 hour trip.
    We visited a variety of inshore marks & fished anchored & on the drift. We caught a variety of species & tried many methods which Lewis quickly advised & provided the terminal tackle & bait for too that day.
    Highlight was over 24 early season Black Bream! An amazing looking & fighting fish & my first caught ever!
    Naturally we returned every fish caught & returned to Lyme with smiles on every face.
    Many thanks Lewis for a a great days fishing we'll be back soon!

    Skippers Reponse: Glad you had such a good day Paul. Hope to see you soon. Thanks Lewis

  • 5-star Scott Lincoln (05/04/2018)

    Lewis took my son and I out earlier today and we both had a great time. He is super knowledgeable and friendly, and made great efforts to ensure we caught lots of fish in different marks. Get yourself booked in!

  • 5-star Darren Herbert (23/11/2017)

    Awesome skipper, great fishing, couldn't ask for more!

  • 5-star Adam Morris (19/08/2017)

    Lewis always does his best to put us on the fish and knows the area like the back of his hand. Nice friendly boat with plenty of hot drinks and good banter. Always a good day out and that's why we keep coming back ��

  • 05/2018 Fishing Report by Lewis hodder

    May 2018 by Lewis hodder

    May Report- What a month, awesome weather especially the later half of the month we managed 24 days at sea in May and today is the first day ashore after a spell of 17 straight days at sea.
    Great to sea some early Bream being caught in one particular area, plenty of fish up to 3lb 9oz with 90% being returned due to the time of year. We’ve also seen plenty of pollack to low double figures, hounds to 7lb, huss to 10lb, Plaice to 2lb, small congers, 4 different types of wrasse, occasional tub gurnards and a few rays. There might of even been the odd dogfish and pout mixed in.... later in the month saw the arrival of a nice few mackerel, great to see them in good numbers at this time of year again.
    Wreck fishing has been patchy, plenty of congers up to 50-60lb on the anchor if that’s your thing. Some days have seen a nice few cod and Pollack with Cod to 8lb and Pollack up to 14lb where as other days the fish have been extremely hard to find. We did have a first ever Coalfish on a crossing to Alderney in a mid channel wreck in late may and I have heard of a few more being caught not too far away, let’s hope this is the start of a comeback for the coalfish on the south coast.
    Great to see so many anglers enjoying Lyme Bay and beyond though with plenty of old faces and a few new ones thrown in as well.

    June availability;

    Saturday 16th Inshore 8am-4pm £50

    Friday 29th Inshore 8am-4pm £50 Bream, Pollack, Plaice
    Evening species league 5-9pm £35 including bait and entry fee.

    I also have the following dates available for whole boat bookings or individuals. 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th building tides all that week. There could be the possibility of a first go at a shark trip for the year?

    10 May 2018 by Lewis hodder

    Well that was better! we managed 16 days at sea in April and 6 out of the first 8 days of May, pleasure to spending so much time at sea and on some days in some pretty awesome weather especially the recent May bank holiday weekend. Anyway onto the fishing, the start of April usually see much ore interest in our inshore trips rather than wrecking which is nice for a change. We've had plenty of Smoothhounds up to 7lb 6oz, a few Rays again only to about 7lb, pollack on the reefs into double figures along with a couple of early cod, there where still plenty of Channel whiting the last time we tried although interest in fishing for them is declining as the summer species start to move in, which brings me on to the Bream, in the past couple of years we have normally only caught the odd fishing during spring where catches further east seem to be very good but this year we seem to have a "colony" of breeding fish on our grounds which is great to see, in turn we have had quite a few Bream in the past week upto 3lb 9oz. The only thing thats really disappointed me about the inshore fishing s far is that we event been seeing many Plaice, especially as the seem to be catching them everywhere else but thats fishing for you.
    Wrecking has tailed of somewhat recently with the Pollack fishing slowing up as it always does at this time of year and the fish also being a smaller average size, we are hoping to see the arrival of cod in good numbers soon!
    Offshore anchored trips have produced some lovely Blonde rays up to 25lb and conger but unfortunately the Spurdogs are playing hard to get to the west of Portland this year for some reason, not long now and the Tope will be around and in July we will start Sharking! can't wait.
    Hope to see you out on the water soon

    Mar 2018 by Lewis hodder

    The first 3 weeks of March were a complete right off to the weather for us, we didn't get out until the 21st!
    On the Inshore grounds we are still seeing lots of good sized Whiting, the Pollack have shown up on the reefs and we have managed a few double figure fish the best being just shy of 13lb. Other than Whiting at anchor there are lots of Bull Huss into double figures, conger, the odd early smoothound and a few thornback rays, on a recent species comp we managed 12 species which isn't bad for March.
    The wrecking continues to be good when we can get out there with lots of double figure pollack coming to the net with the odd Ling and early Cod showing.
    Lets hope the weather improves going into April!

  • 02/2018 Fishing Report by Lewis hodder

    Feb 2018 by Lewis hodder

    February’s fishing was typical of the time of year really, we only manage 6 trips 4 of which were on the wrecks and 2 inshore trips.

    Inshore fishing produced plenty of whiting up to 3lb, the odd thornback ray, Bull Huss and a fair few small Smoothies.

    The wrecking continued to be good with lots of Pollack caught up to 15lb.

    Not a lot else to report I’m afraid this month hopefully I’ll have a bit more to write about in next months report when hopefully we will start seeing some good Pollack on the inshore reefs and wrecks and maybe even a few early Plaice and more smoothies on the inshore grounds.

    January report;

    Considering the typically awful January weather we had we did rather well nJanuary an managed seven trips, 4 out on the wrecks and 3 on the inshore marks.

    The wrecking was very good when conditions were favourable, although we had to go a long way to find the better sized fish we boated lots of good sized hard fighting Pollack up to 16lb 6oz.

    Inshore fishing was typical of January, murky water and lots of ravenous whiting up to the 3lb mark, a few Thornback and Undulate Rays the best of which were 10lb 4oz and 16lb 10oz respectively, there have been lots of Bull Huss around on the rougher ground as usual going up to 11lb and strap congers amongst them with the odd bigger Eel the best in January was estimated at 50lb and released at the side of the boat. Sadly we didn't see any cod in January.

    Fishing should be more of the same for February but hopefully we will get good weather on some smaller tides to venture out to the offshore reefs and banks in search of a few Spurdogs.
