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.

    A great day out with Ross and Spot On. Ross is able to teach anglers new and old to catch more fish, his knowledge of sea fishing is top notch. To top it all, a 20lb was landed using light gear. Picture uploaded hopefully. A big thanks Nick

    Skippers Reponse: Hi Nick,
    Thank you for your review, and a big well done for battling that big fish on very light and fun tackle.

  • 5-star Brian Baverstock (22/07/2016)

    Great day out, fish didn't want to play but Ross tried very hard all day to get us into fish and had great fun with the congers.Hopefully when we come down in October the wrecks won't be saturated with mackerel as they were this time.Thanks also to Phil for the hard work he put in, shame about the bucket!! Look forward to seeing you both in October, Mike and Brian, Portsmouth

    Skippers Reponse: Hi Mike and Brian, thanks for joining us on board spot in and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Latest Fishing Reports

  • 06/2018 Fishing Report by Ross Parham

    Jun 2018 by Ross Parham

    Just finished an exhilarating 2 days fishing with MILNROW SAC.

    Day 1 was spent fishing for blonde Ray's and Plaice.
    A mixture of uptiding and downtiding for this and it wasn't long before the first bite and a cracking blonde ray of 26lb hit the net.
    The action was soon fast and furious with upto 3 Ray's on at once and the size and quality of the fish was also very good.
    A total of 24 blonde Ray's boated with 6 of them over the 20lb mark and only 4 under 10lb.
    Anchor up and on the drift for the plaice, again some good action at times with the biggest plaice being 2lb 4oz.
    Speicies caught on day 1 were blonde Ray, plaice, dogfish, tub gurnard, grey gurnard, red gurnard, whiting and mackerel.

    Day 2 and the sun was out again and it was off to get some mackerel for bait for conger and Ling.
    After a couple of hours we had enough bait and we steamed out to the choosen wreck, anchor down and baits set, first action was a nice ling and then the eels came to feed along with the Ling, biggest conger landed was a cracking eel of 53lb for Jim (not bad for a 20lb class rod and 30lb braid mainline).
    Anchor up and on the drift. Pollock and cod coming to the net straight away and continued every drift until the steam home.
    Conger to 53lb, Ling to 15lb, pollock to 15lb and cod to 5lb.
    Species caught on day 2: conger, Ling, cod, pollock, pouting and mackerel.

    A stunning 2 days weather wise and as you can see the fishing wasn't bad either!

    Pictured is father and son Mark and Cameron holding a brace of blonde Ray's.

    Still a few 2018 dates available and now taking bookings for 2019.

    Spot On does what the name suggests, Brixhams premier charter boat and the only catamaran. Speed, space and stability.

  • 05/2018 Fishing Report by Ross Parham

    May 2018 by Ross Parham

    With a decent run of good weather Spot On has been all over the place from fishing inshore on the skerries bank to deep water wrecks in search of conger to mid channel wrecking for cod and pollock along with the first trips to the Channel Islands.

    In May 2018 We have caught:
    Pollock to 16lb 8oz
    Ling to 27lb
    Cod to 13lb
    Turbot to 19lb 6oz
    Brill to 6lb 2oz
    Undulate Ray to 17lb 2oz
    Ballan wrasse to 5lb 4oz
    Conger eels to 70lb
    John Dory to 4lb 10oz
    Black bream to 3lb 10oz
    Plaice to 2lb 14oz

    As you can see there are some truly amazing catches of fish of lifetime let alone in just one month!

    Still some dates for 2018 and now taking bookings for 2019.

    Why not try Spot On, Brixham's and the south wests premier charter boat. I think you'd have a job to beat these types of catches anywhere else!

  • 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.

    Dates are filling fast so if you want a trip on board Brixham's premier charter boat and only catamaran then feel free to contact me.

    With a break in the weather we headed out tintype mid channel wrecks.
    Good constant fishing all day with plenty of pollock and some lovely prime double figure fish coming in.
    Some nice cod, bass, coalfish, tub gurnards, pout and scad made up the rest of the day's catch.

    It's good to see wrecking improving and nice to see some big fish once again.

    Pictured is Rob with his 9lb bass.
