    Rob Sands landed a superb Bass weighing 9Ib 8oz which took a small Red Gill Lure with a red tail.

    Peter Strickson and friends from Yorkshire joined Flamer IV for a 4 day Angling Break. Unfortunately the first day was too windy to go out but the remaining three days went ahead as planned. We fished several Reef and Bank marks at anchor and on the drift. Quite a few species were caught and included Black Bream, Turbot, Tope, Congers, Gurnards, Smooth Hounds, Bull Huss, Scad, Mackerel etc along with three variety of Rays which included Undulate Rays which most of the guys had never caught before. Pictured is Peter Strickson with a 10Ib 1oz Undulate Ray.

    Angling Breaks - come and catch a variety of fish. Weymouth Angling Breaks - Book Now, Don't miss Out,*** NOW TAKING BOOKINGS FOR 2021 ***
    A few days away fishing out of Weymouth along with the social side is a nice trip to do. The variety of fishing and the amount of different species caught at Weymouth is probably second to none. There are plenty of places to stay which are angler friendly and some excellent places to wine and dine around the harbour and in Weymouth Town centre. If you want to try a Weymouth Angling Break then contact me, I cater for whole boat charters and individuals. If you are interested in doing a trip with a difference please contact me for full details. Planning your trip well in advance is essential you need to arrange your boat/place booking and your accommodation as early as possible to avoid disappointment, some of my regular groups plan their trips at least 12 months in advance, this allows them to discuss with me the best tides for the type of fishing they are targeting.

    At last back out fishing and good to be back. My first charter trip since the middle of March.
    I had the pleasure of Khang and his friends,on the way out they were treated to a Dolphin leaping out of the water several times.
    As they all had light tackle we anchored a mark to the East of Weymouth in not too much tide.
    They enjoyed themselves catching Thornback Rays, Congers, Smooth Hounds and the usual Dogfish.
    Also caught quite a few Mackerel during the trip, "good to see the Mackerel are about".
    Khang is pictured with his 35Ib Conger eel.

    They enjoyed themselves so much they have already booked for a trip next week.

    July dates - not many left now, so don't miss out - July 22nd and 23rd are both Reef/Bank Trips and available for whole boat bookings or individuals.

    Corona Virus Update

    It has been confirmed that from 4th July Flamer IV will be able to operate again with reduced numbers of 5

    passengers plus me (more passengers will be allowed if they are from the same household).

    All bookings already held will be contacted and informed of the change and it will be their decision if they wish or their

    booking to remain.

    For the rest of July there will be the restrictions on numbers.

    For Individuals trips unfortunately there has to be a price per person increase -

    Inshore trips will be £100 per person and Wreck trips £140 per person.

    This is for July and hopefully the next set of government guidelines will see numbers able to increase on the boat.

    Note: I will be updating my schedule/trips page and sending out a newsletter this week.

    NOTE: please sanitize your hands before boarding the boat, during the trip and before getting off the boat.

    Stay Safe, All The Best, Colin, Flamer IV
