About the Skipper:

Sam Cumming spent his childhood fishing with Andy at home and abroad, when he was eight he was Wessex NFSA Junior Champion and the same year he landed a 26lb blonde ray. At 16 he decided he wanted a career in the fishing industry and applied and was accepted as an apprentice at the Whitby School of Sea Fishing. He completed his fishing apprenticeship on a trawler in some of the toughest waters in the world, the North Sea, and was awarded Apprentice of the Year in 2007. In 2008 Sam completed all the theoretical and practical training to gain his Yachtmasters certificate (RYA) and qualified to Skipper the Silver Spray. He has been skippering full time for over 9 years and has already made an impressive start to his charter career.

    We have just got back from our last Alderney trip of the year, crossing into Poole harbour safely just a few hours before storm Ali batters the south coast. Strong south westerly winds kept us in sheltered waters to the north of the island for 3 days. The main target species was couch’s sea bream which every angler on the boat managed catch, Jed leaving his until the last minute just as we hauled the anchor up to come home. A surprise catch came in the form of our first and second ever trigger fish landed around the Channel Islands. Andy Armitage’s fish weighed 4lb and was quickly released as it looked to be a female in season. Fishing at anchor mid channel has also been fruitful with plenty of black bream tope and congers on the wrecks. We are seeing an abundance of porbeagle sharks just like last year, although they are proving tough to hook on the correct tackle usually favouring hooks meant for bream. In Poole bay plaice fishing has been brilliant of late with fish averaging around the 2lb mark and all the way up to 4lb. I’ve noticed it has been worth sitting it out as they can sometimes be a bit picky about when they come on the feed, sometimes changing from one day to the next. Elsewhere at anchor the ray fishing has been good also with good numbers of small eyed and undulates about. We are even seeing turbot and brill at anchor regularly which is never a bad thing. It’s well worth bringing frozen mackerel from now on as the they are becoming unreliable to find for bait. We have spaces in the first week of October to target porbeagle sharks as we are going 5 days on the trot in an effort to keep track of them. Call on 07787 375386 to get booked up.

    What a difference it makes having a summer for a change? Flat calm mornings and just a slight sea breeze in the afternoon have been the conditions of recent weeks and it has led to no cancelled trips at all. Its amazing how much wildlife you see with a sustained period of good weather like this, thresher sharks jumping out of the water, pods of dolphins showing off their best tricks and sunfish splashing around on the surface to name but a few. With the smaller tides we have mostly been fishing long distance from Poole either wreck fishing or multi day trips. Notable fish include Barry Gollop’s 19lb 4oz Pollock which took a mackerel flapper at anchor, the biggest I’ve seen since 2012. We managed 3 John dory’s in a week with the biggest going to Steve Lysaght at 5lb 8oz, interestingly enough the first one we caught and Steve’s fish were 76 miles apart in total, quite some distance covered. Skipper Sam managed to break our own coalfish record for the second time this year fishing on a 100 gram slow jigging rod for Pollock. The fish weighed in at 16lb and gave an epic scrap on the lighter tackle. Closer to home the inshore fishing has been brilliant with plenty of mackerel around for fresh bait. The quality of the tope fishing has been outstanding with fishing averaging about 20lb and up to 45lb. We have some big fish days coming up next week if anyone is interested in getting stuck in. On the bigger tides of this last weekend we had some fun on the bass, although disappointed not to be able to keep a couple for the table we managed plenty of good fish for the sport of it, Kevin Griffiths equalled his PB with a nice 8lb 8oz fish. Using circle and weedless hooks we minimised damage to the fish to zero with all fish swimming off strongly for another year. Looking forward to the plaice fishing picking up next month and some more sessions on the tope, it won’t be long before we are also targeting the porbeagle sharks which are showing in abundance in other parts of the country.

    I hope everyone is making the most of all this decent weather we have been getting lately, after a winter as hard as that it’s like living in the tropics at the moment. Bream fishing has continued as it started off in last month’s report. We are finding good numbers, several days managing over 100 fish. Although the size hasn’t quite been as good as the last few years I’m sure the bigger ones will arrive shortly, on light spinning gear they are all good fun to catch regardless. With increased demand on inshore trips we have only done a few trips out into the channel on the wrecks, still a bit on the quiet side but now producing more cod than Pollock so it’s heading in the right direction. We managed our first trip over to Alderney of the season but unfortunately it was the week before bank holiday and the weather was testing at best. Well done and many thanks to the guys who came with us and managed a safe and fun trip in far from perfect conditions. Fishing on the banks was good with brill and turbot both in good numbers and plenty of bait to be had on the feathers. One of the highlights of the month has been some quality plaice fishing which we have fitted in on our bream days. Fish up to 4lb have been hitting the net which is always welcome. Hoping for more good weather over the coming months as our offshore stuff picks up more. Thanks to everyone for fishing with us on Silver Spray and out of Poole over the last month.

    I hope everyone is enjoying the hot weather over the last week r so, long may it continue. Spring/ summer fishing is properly underway now. Inshore we have had the first black bream of the year, more should arrive on the next spring the first weekend in May and then some bigger ones shortly after. On the drift we are getting some cracking early season plaice as they start to feed after they have finished spawning. Tim Davies has the biggest so far at a whopping 4lb 8oz. Turbot and brill have mostly been on the small side so far but Phil Folkes did manage our first double of the year at 11lb just to prove the bigger ones are down there. Out on the wrecks the big Pollock are still plentiful although we shall shortly stop winding the lures and start bouncing to target the summer cod. In the last week we have seen 3 decent sized john dorys which is always a welcome bonus. You don’t always see 3 in one year let alone 3 so close together. The biggest went to Russ Orchard at 5lb 9oz. Evening trips start at the beginning of May to target the bream and plaice.

    With all the wind, rain and snow we have been having over the last month this is going to be a brief report. We have managed 4 days afloat since mid February, thankfully the quality of the fishing has more than made up for the lack of opportunities to get out there. We have focused our efforts on the wrecks mid channel and that has paid off with good numbers and some quality fish making appearances. Biggest so far is around the 15lb mark with average sat at about 8lb, a key ingredient for success seems to be a very long trace sometimes as much as 15 feet. We managed to beat one of our longest standing boat records in early March as Pete Knight battled a 9lb 8oz coalfish to the surface. The record has been at 6lb ever since Silver Spray 1's first trip to Alderney in 2006. Elsewhere we did have a couple of hours on the spurs whilst doing some filleting one day and they are still on the grounds in abundance with a few blonde rays thrown in for good measure. Over the next month we shall see the arrival of the flatfish on the banks and the bream on the reef grounds.
