THE FISHING

Renowned worldwide for it's quality sea fishing heritage, Scarborough on the beautiful Yorkshire coast is the ideal port to charter a boat for an angling trip.
Luckily for Scarborough there is many places to fish, most of these places we fish are Natural scars of rock, kelp beads, And generally really rough ground ideal for Cod and Pollock Fishing. there are many marks we fish some are only a few minutes away from the harbour and others can span up to filey brigg or ravenscar again two very good Cod and Pollock grounds.

Also close to Scarborough are many old ship wrecks, mainly ships that were sunk in the war, and some old trawlers. these wrecks can produce good Cod, Ling, Pollock, and Many other fish.

Skylark Skipper Nick Gough's Photo
About the Skipper:

Nick is a keen match angler fishing from the boat and the shore. Over many years he has fished in the Scarborough Boat Angling Club, the Scarborough Angling Festival and the Scalby Mills Angling Club and in the last few years he has gathered many trophies and prizes. As well as fishing Nick also enjoys gathering and digging his own bait to ensure he has the best possible bait.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, Nick with his lifelong knowledge of the area will take you to the best spots for a successful day’s fishing.

First and foremost Nick is an angler and admits to having a passion for bait fishing from the shore and the boat for Cod. During the summer Nick feels there is not any type of better fishing than catching Pollock on light tackle using lures. Obviously cod is the main target species of all the charter boats and we have had some excellent fish with both quality and quantity coming aboard

    The service provided by Nick and his mate was absolutely first class.Nothing was too much trouble,everything was well explained.
    The Skylark was an absolute pleasure to be aboard,we will be back.

    Skippers Reponse: Many thanks for your glowing review Graham

  • 5-star Dave K (03/08/2018)

    For anyone who has not yet fished on Skylark do your self a favour and book a trip the skipper Nick never gives less than 100 % effort and is a pleasure to be at sea with there's more than a few well known boats/skippers that could do with taking a leaf out of Nicks book when it comes to customer care less bullshit and more effort.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks for a great review.

    Hope to see you again soon

    That much fish we have done a group photo a few hours before the end of the trip to make a start on gutting as we steam to the next wreck.

    Heaviest fish so far is a 16lb ling

    Loads of well size cod returned as anglers are happy with what thay allready have to take home which is great to see.

    Overal over 125 cod boarded so far between 11 anglers aswell as some good size ling and pollock too

    Just #dreamfishing here at #Scarborough at the moment everyday just seams to be getting better hopefully this fishing continues for alot longer

    8 hour trip

    What a insane 8hrs of nearly non stop fishing
    Every single drift today produced 1 or more fish
    Loads of live footage thoughout the day on our facebook page
    One lad managed to catch around 30 cod alone
    In total the lads must have caught in excess of 140 Cod/ Codling alone.
    Aswell as ling, pollock, mackerel billet and whiting.

    3hour trip

    Well the weather didnt hold out that nice a south easterly wind came through this afternoon and made sea conditions abit more challenging.

    Never the less the customers still had a great trip and after an hour or so the winds died and the fishing really picked up.
    Most anglers had between 5 to 8 good size cod each with quite a few just under 40cm returned to fight anouther day.
    Loads of mackerel and a good few pollock as well overal they caught around 50 to 60 Cod to take home

    Hopefully this brilliant fishing holds out now for the rest of the summer
