Spot On is fitted with 6 berths consisting of 2x single bunks and 2x twin bunks.

Located in Brixham means 'Spot On' has fishing grounds very close by like the famous skerries banks for plaice and rays etc,
Accompany this from the wrecks of Lyme bay to the deep water wrecks off start point means Brixham in my mind is the home of wreck fishing, also still being the current World record holder of the ultimate sport fish in British waters the Conger Eel.
Channel island trips in comfort and bespoke offshore trips offered including shark trips, south west multiple days, Scilly Isles, Falmouth etc, and new for 2014 multiple day trips east to fish Portland race, shambles and poole.
Hot Drinks on board.
Beginners welcome.
Due to the great location of Brixham Spot on can pick you up from Paington, Torquay or Dartmouth as well as Brixham. (Prior arrangement for this option).
So for a great superb value for money day out and to fish where others simply dream of why not try 'Spot On' the ultimate charter vessel.

  • 02/2018 Fishing Report by Ross Parham

    Feb 2018 by Ross Parham

    A break in the weather meant that we managed to get out mid channel wrecking 4 days in a row.
    Glorious weather all days and accompanied by lots of dolphins which is always great to see.
    Again wrecking proved to be very good with lots of prime pollock being caught every day, plenty of double figurerd fish around up to the high teens.
    We also managed a lovely specimen grey gurnard of 1lb 8oz along with ling, our first cod of the year, pouting, whiting and some bass. (Returned alive quickly)
    This fine fishing should be set to continue for the next month or so.

    Top lures over the 4 days were the skerries Sandeel by Sidewinder.

    Well August has certainly been an up and down month with both the weather and fishing.
    But as the month draws to an end the months notable tally's are as follows:
    Blue sharks to 113lb,
    Conger to 83lb,
    John Dory to 4lb 4oz,
    Plaice to 3lb,
    Tope to 35lb,
    Pollock to 14lb,
    Cod to 26lb,
    Ling to 28lb 8oz,
    Black bream to 5lb.
    A lot more different species has been landed which include: Turbot, brill, bull Huss, whiting, red gurnard, tub gurnard, grey gurnard, mackerel, launce, blonde ray, small eyed ray, spotted ray, garfish, pouting, dogfish, coalfish.

    So although August has been tough it has also produced some truly stunning specimen fish. September is the Torbay festival which is always good fun and I'm looking forward to it already.

    Pictured this month is Cyril Williams with his first attempt at shark fishing and landing this fine fish of 113lb, he also landed a cracking eel of 66lb along with other firsts for him which included tope, well done Cyril.

    Big thanks again to Sidewinder lures and Top Rigs for there great products which help land these great catches.
