    Due to guide lines around the COVID-19 Virus, Trips have currently been suspended until it is safe to do so. The last couple of weeks we have managed to find a large amount of small codling off ramsgate, along with some good size early hounds just under 10lb. Still very early for them, and should see bigger and better soon along with the bass. Once trips continue we will be doing longer trips, with more fish, better weather and hopefully higher spirts. To all our customers stay safe and we will see you all onboard soon enough. Tight lines all.

    With Thornback Rays being widely caught inshore & Offshore, we will shortly be focusing our attention on targeting the first of our Smooth-hounds and Bass. During March-May, it is very common to catch smooth hounds well over 10lb+ due to all the big, pupped up females moving through, along side large bass running through along side them. From March onwards we will be using a variety of different baits to insure chance of getting these large fish from live prawn, fresh peeler crabs and squid to really give us the edge on catching these fish early. Along side them, you’ll find large quantities of Skate, Flat-Fish, Large Whiting and other species. To book please call 07949960222 to arrange any trips or and questions you may have about the fishing we offer out of ramsgate. Tight lines all����

    After a week of strong winds, the herring shoals have finally been dispersed allowing us a better chance to hook those larger fish feeding on them. The skate are well and truly inshore with an average of 10 a trip with our best just under 15lb. Even the whiting are starting to thin out, producing more good sized dabs and Bass with the tide. For bookings at £40 including everything, call 07949960222!

    January fishing is fully in swing, with plenty of large whiting,Dabs,Bass and skate kicking about. This January has been quite mild and to our surprise there’s still a good amount of bass coming up. Within the next month hopefully we should see some early smooth-hounds pushing inshore, along with the start of the large bass we get out of ramsgate. From the start of April we will be providing live prawn and fresh peeler crab to really target those large hounds and bass we get at the start of our season. For now the fishing is still very active with plenty of fish being caught each trip, as time goes on, the fishing should only get better and better. At £40 a head or £250 whole for whole boat, why not give us a message or call and book a day with us? Hopefully see you onboard����

    The hound fishing is picking up with bigger specimens being caught. There are plenty of bass but not in the sizes we’d be hoping for, most bellow the 3lb range but the occasional 6lb+ is coming up from ramsgate. Hopefully as the bass migrate through we should see some better bass in numbers and hopefully some early codling. As the summer is drawing to a end we are noticing a increase in whiting, mackerel, and a very steady stream of large amounts of fish. Hopefully some nice pictures will be uploaded soon.

    Bookings are due to start being taken during the beginning of September as the fishing picks up. September can be one of the best months out of ramsgate with big smooth-hound and bass Fishing. Plenty of other species such as thornbacks,Whiting,Pouting,Mackerel,Dog fish and Cod can also be caught inshore.
