    I'm writing this month's report from the hotel on Alderney as we couldn't get out to sea today due to strong north-easterly winds. It seems like the last 2 weeks have all been pretty similar, although we do have more shelter in Poole Bay than most places so we are still able to get out. First trip out to target the bass after the ban was lifted on July 1st was met with some tough conditions with both the tide and the weather not in our favour. We fished for about an hour before the stiff westerly picked up and the tide dropped away, fishing was successful on the lures in that time with plenty of smaller fish taking the tronix lures wound quickly up 10 turns and back down. As usual the bigger fish fell to the guys who stuck with the large live baits. Kelvin Hindmarch's new PB hit the deck at 9lb 12oz and is still our biggest of the season so far. The cod are thin on the ground out in the channel with the last 2 trips only producing 3 each but we are still getting some good pollock and the ling are starting to show more frequently. We should see the first of the big wreck bream soon on certain wrecks, could this be the year we see another one over 6lb? Back in the sheltered waters of Poole Bay the variety of fish available is amazing with most trips producing at least 15 species. Plaice brill and turbot are coming to the net both at anchor and on the drift. Rays and tope are in abundance now with undulates being the most plentiful. Packs of 20lb+ male tope roam around about 12 miles out and are providing excellent sport when we can get to them.

    The wreck fishing has been sporadic with some days seeing heaps of fish hit the deck only for the same marks to produce next to nothing the following day. Pollock are still a good size with fish over 15lb taking the lures over various wrecks. The cod have been thin on the ground but have increased in size, 6 or 7 fish being our best trip but 18lbers not uncommon. Pretty much every angler I know has been out to enjoy some of the awesome bream fishing we are getting off Poole this season, I expect you are fed up of hearing about it. The black bream continue to provide quality sport fishing with fish to 4b coming on most trips. As the waters have heated up the rays have started to move, undulates, small eyed and blondes are in abundance. I had a great time at the Poole species hunt this year, organised by Sarah and Louis Medley. The 2 teams on my boat managed 17 species between them, evenly spread between the larger species and a few of the mini goby and wrasse variety. Brilliant day out, bear it in mind for next year if you have got a few mates who want to give it a try. Looking forward to being able to land a few bass in two weeks time.

    Despite a week or so of easterly winds the fishing from Poole has been very good in the last month. We have mostly been bream fishing, with great success on the marks in the Bay. The size of the fish we are seeing has been very encouraging with plenty of 3lb plus fish hitting the baits. The best bream so far has been Barry Culver's 4lb 8oz PB which was caught on squid head. As well as the bigger fish we have had some good numbers on other marks too, usually a smaller stamp so plenty returned for next season. Our first Alderney trip went well, with some cracking brill on the banks being the highlight. The wreck fishing was very quiet in late April but I'm pleased to say that its picked back up again now and we are starting to see the first of the cod. The mackerel have started to arrive as well, how long they will stick around for is another matter, we have had catches off Poole, Alderney and in the Channel. Looking forward to some more wrecking trips over the coming weeks to target some big cod.

    April '17

    Things are hotting up on the inshore side with the first decent hits of bream rattling the baits last week on the spring tide. A range of sizes up to about 2lb were on show, we usually expect to see the bigger fish arrive a couple of weeks after the first ones. It's nice to see so many anglers using circle hooks to target the bream to cause minimum damage as they are mostly catch and release. Out on the wrecks the pollock are still in abundance on the drift. Last weekend we had a tow for sandeels whilst turbot fishing using our trawl and then used the sandeels to great effect to target the pollock. We have had the first summer cod and bonus john dory out on the wrecks as well, which is a good couple of weeks earlier than last year, let's hope this is a good sign of things to come. And finally our fishing at anchor hasn't slowed up at all with plenty of decent spurdogs around despite the warmer temperatures. Ian Napier landed a cracking PB of 20lb the other day, one of 3 he had during a short spell over slack water. Fish of the Month definitely goes to Dean Lodge of Species Hunt UK for his 22lb 2oz undulate ray he caught during a hectic day on one of the banks south of Poole. Beating our previous boat record by 2lb. Off to Alderney for the first time this year tomorrow.

    I'll pick up where I left off in the last report, we have completed our first few wreck trips to target the pollock. The first drift of the year is proving hard to beat with Jamie Hayes landing a monster of 17lb 8oz, Andy Hayden catching the years first ling and Bob Morrison boating his first of 3 doubles that day. Fishing has been steady on all the trips out to the wrecks, clarity in the water is still very good and we should get a good few more weeks before the bloom comes in and the pollock become a bit more elusive for a while and we focus on the cod. Elsewhere we have had our first trip down to the shambles, plenty of sand eels on the feathers but only a few turbot to show for our efforts. The fishing will pick up as we move on into April and the temperature rises again. And finally the offshore banks have been producing some enormous hits of spur dogs, nothing too big yet, but a few fish around the 20lb mark show that the big ones are on their way. Although the weather has kept us in mostly over the last few weeks we are looking forward to more of the same over the next month on the fishing front.
