Colin Graham was introduced to angling at the age of 4 by his father. Come to the age of 17 and the sale of the family boat Colin bought his first charter boat Magnet 2, fishing wrecks and reefs over the weeken with the locals.

Diving was Colin's next thing to put his hand to. Every evening he would dive wrecks and ground so he had the understanding what was beneath. Fishing was his passion a dream to let others share his experience of finding those big fish and landing them !!,

Reading all the books on wrecks, deep sea diver logs and trolling through the web different notes wrecks and ground. The knowledge on where to go times of year tides and weather conditions seen Colin produce good catches time and time again.

Colin Needed faster boat so he saved and bought an offshore 105 and fished the deeper wrecks,pushing further north and south on the grounds and wrecks, again he come up trumps with the fishing. He then went commercial, now proud owner, trawler Blueye .D. named after his father. New 2015 New commercial Trawler Blueye has went into commission, Colin fleet turned into great business owning three commercial boats.

With great Demand the New Charter Boat was ordered to Colin's Specification!! He knew all what was needed to fulfil a charter boat anglers dream. Blueye2 was commissioned 2014 followed by Blueye stern trawler 2015. No matter what time of year, wind and tide all his knowledge goes into finding the fish............. Colin is one of the best known skippers on the North East Coast.

This Charter has been listed as Suitable for Diving Trips. Contact the Skipper for full details.

    A crew from North East Maritime Trust on historic purse netter worked alongside Colin and his crew on Blueye on September 10. This was in the making of a scene of The Last Kingdom for Carnival Films. At all times Colin followed the instructions of the director without drama or fuss whilst running in close formation with us, a short distance outside the Tyne breakwaters. Impressive manoeuvering and nothing too much trouble. Thank you Colin.

    Skippers Reponse: Hi Paul thanks for the opportunity was great day manny thanks

    Not a bad day at all considering the lazy swell that was rolling, set away 7am as usual and headed for the wrecks, we picked away steadily all morning until the tide faded and so did the fish only picking up a handful in the afternoon. The morning tide saw us land around 40 fish to 7lb with newbie anglers doing really well.
    We have availability this coming Friday evening fishing 5-9pm @ &£25pp and also a full day trip Saturday 7am-4pm @ £45pp, Rod and reel hire is available on request @ £5 per set.

    Had a trip up north this weekend which was hampered by fast drifts for most of the trip with wind and tide but it didn't stop us catching a few fish, cod to 8-9lb along with ling around the same size, ended Saturdays trip with around 30 fish all of which were cod around 3-5lb and a couple ling amongst them. Sundays trip started off fantastic with the weather and by lunchtime we had around 40 maybe 45 fish with some cracking cod in amongst them, then the wind come pushing us along at over 2kts, spoilt what was destined to be a good day. 2 party's full of cracking folk and two great days all the same, thanks for coming guys.

    This coming week we are out Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening 5-9pm, with availability on all 3 trips @ £25pp, Rod and reel hire is available on request at £5 per set.

    Call me on 07572381784 or message our page to book peeps, thanks again. �� �� �� �� ��
