    What a great day we both had. Tea and coffe on boarding the boat were unexpected but very acceptable. Advice was most welcome for newcomers to sea fishing. Ron usually course angles, but really loved this. Diana being a sissy girl couldn't put the bait on but one of Roger, John or Pete were always there to help out. Ladies give it a try ( the bonus is you get a brilliant sun tan) Thanks Roger a great day see you next year.

  • 5-star john sanderson (16/06/2015)

    Bass fishing on the skerry belle. Had a great day catching bass, The crew were very helpful and proffessional. Clean boat and plenty off room on board it. Would highly recommend using them. l will be going back out again.

    Another trip back to my roots were I fished as a lad along the Kent coast and enjoyed some of the best fishing available from UK waters. I fish a lot off shore and to enjoy an inshore day uptiding for Cod was pleasant and also very productive fishing out of Ramsgate on board the Skerry Belle skippered by owner Roger Lennon. The boat is ideal for inshore angling with plenty of space, the day started quite miserable with heavy rain and overcast skys but little to no wind so the sea state was calm to flat and at the end of the day after plenty of sunshine too it became oily. As it was inshore fishing the mark chosen was reached in a short travelling time and we were soon casting uptide style using top quality lugworm baits provided by the skipper and his reliable digger. Once the scents of our baits found their way around the Codling started to arrive and they were steady throughout the day along with the odd whiting, pout and doggies. Plenty of fish in the box, nice day after the short period of rain and also treated to bacon baps and a hot dinner plus treacle sponge pudding with custard and some tinnies were on offer for those not driving, skipper Roger is a City & Guilds trained chef and can russle up anything you want to bring along or provide meals with prior notice. So to say this inshore trip was a winner on the Ramsgate Riviera can only be the right description and with a beer and fish & chip supper before the drive home and time to reflect on a first class day. In between catching Codling I managed to shoot some HD video for my On Board Series so as soon as that's edited it will go up on my YouTube channel, enjoy some of these vidcaps from the movie and you will soon get the picture of what a great day it was, shoot down to Ramsgate and grab some action while the Cod is plentyful you will get well looked after On the Skerry Belle Charter Boat If you're a beginner plenty of tuition is available and you even get your catch prepared ready to take home.

    Skippers Reponse: We always try that bit harder allan, and so pleased you enjoyed ur day

    Back to my roots I grew up fishing the Kent coast and enjoying some best fishing on offer around the UK. Recently I was invited to join a party of anglers boat fishing out of Ramsgate Marina so a return to fish near marks I fished many years ago. The boat was the Skerry Belle a large spacious traditional style boat which was originally a licensed ferry boat off the east coast. Skipper owner Roger Lennon who has years of experience fishing off Ramsgate and the notorius Goodwin Sands was friendly and willing to find you fish and provide any support you could want, crewman that day was Geordie John a very experienced angler again willing to offer any guidandce you care to ask for. I have uptided before but needed help in how it was done off Ramsgate and both Roger and John obliged and put me on the right track including baiting techniques that work well. Since that first trip I have enjoyed more outings taking good sized Bass largest to date 7lbs+ and the last trip we hit the thornback rays with me being the top rod with most caught and heaviest fish at 11.5lbs. With the winter Cod showing I will be back for many more and his toasted bacon sarnies are to die for if you get time to eat them as the fish jump all over your baits. To sum it up a wicked find to return to my roots with many more being planned, you need to have some yourself and Enjoy !!!

  • 01/06/2018 Fishing Report by Roger Lennon

    1 Jun 2018 by Roger Lennon

    Some terrific fish on board the Skerry Belle. With the best fish definately going to Wayne Milton for his monster bass, weighing in at 19 lb 4 oz. This fish is 5 oz off the British boat record and the biggest UK boat caught bass since 1987. So as you can see that really is a great achievement (see photo).
    Our best blonde on board so far is 24 lb. We had a near record sea scorpion which gave us just short of a record. Some of our thornbacks have been nudging the 18 lb mark. The thornbacks are here in abundance, with again, over 20 per trip not uncommon.
    As spring approaches we will start paying our attention to the wrecks on the Goodwins where we should see good numbers of coding bass, channel whiting blondes gurnard plaice and most other species. Remember we cater for walk ons, small groups, whole boat bookings up to 10 anglers. Remember all equipment, baits and tuition is included on all trips, unlimited tea and coffee and hot pies for lunch. Walk in toilet, hot and cold running water, heating and seating inside for all.

    Some bumper catches should be seen in the next few months on board Skerry Belle, as the fishing improves with the days getting longer. Cod, bass, blonde rays, thornbacks, plaice, gurnard, mackeral, hounds, and mixed bag fishing on the Goodwins will be our target species. The Goodwins are renouned for catches of large bass and cod in early Spring. Remember, we are a full time charter boat and operate out of the Royal Harbour, Ramsgate, 7 days a week. Individuals, small groups or whole boat bookings can be organised anytime. All our trips include quality baits, equiptment, lunch, and tuition.

  • 10/10/2016 Fishing Report by Roger Lennon

    10 Oct 2016 by Roger Lennon

    The fishing should be spectacular now off the coast of Ramsgate, all through the months of November, December, January and February. The cod fishing will be superb! The herring and sprat scholes have now moved offshore. So with the cod putting on extra weight feeding on these the fish should be much larger than last year. Averaging the 6-8lb bracket and definitely a chance of a large double. With this and the skate fishing on the goodwins where we have seen fish up to 15lb. And over 25 fish a trip. It really should be a bumper few months. Remember all my trips include equipment and some baits and I can supply lug worm onboard so no need to worry about baits on any trip. Remember all trips include a qualified deckhand for your tuition. Children and families more than welcome. Individuals from as little as £40 a head. Call me now on 07805250427 to book.
    Tight lines,
    Roger
