Additional Description:

The boat operates from Poole Quay all year round. We provide charters for smaller crews of up to six anglers. Most of the fishing is within 25nm of the harbour to minimise travelling time and maximise fishing time!

All types of fishing are available from inshore drifting and anchoring with ultra light tackle for plaice and bream to anchoring with heavier tackle for rays, tope and Conger eels.

We also do specialist fishing such as drifting offshore banks for bass and turbot/ brill and fishing offshore wrecks and reefs for pollack and cod.

Poole is also a great port for doing a species hunt.

Catch and release is always encouraged and size limits are strictly enforced. If you want to retain some fish to take home there are facilities to keep it in prime condition.

About the Skipper:

I have been boat fishing from the port for 40 years. I have been skippering fishing trips from the port for over 20 years although I have only recently started doing commercial trips.

I have produced many personal bests for my anglers over the years and always get a thrill from seeing a good fish coming aboard.

I have lots of knowledge of the different areas/ marks particularly within 25nm of the harbour.

I am a very keen angler myself and am always looking to learn something new.

    28 Jun 2020 by John Peck

    The fishing is very good at the moment and we have been helped by generally favourable weather although there have been some windy spells.

    There are lots of plaice being caught. Plenty of small fish around but also a good number of bigger fish up to 3lb. All of the local marks are producing fish which is great as you do not need to travel far to find nice fishing.

    Further out there are plenty of bass taking lures fished on the drift. The big fish have eluded us so far but we have had plenty up to 6lb. Our last trip also produced a 4lb tub gurnard amongst the bass.

    We haven't been doing much fishing at anchor but when we have there have been rays and lots of tope which are often a brief encounter on a light nylon trace!

    The mackerel have arrived now but seem to be feeding for certain periods rather than right through the day. It is better to bring some frozen mackerel for bait rather than relying on catching bait immediately.
