THE FISHING

Renowned worldwide for it's quality sea fishing heritage, Scarborough on the beautiful Yorkshire coast is the ideal port to charter a boat for an angling trip.
Luckily for Scarborough there is many places to fish, most of these places we fish are Natural scars of rock, kelp beads, And generally really rough ground ideal for Cod and Pollock Fishing. there are many marks we fish some are only a few minutes away from the harbour and others can span up to filey brigg or ravenscar again two very good Cod and Pollock grounds.

Also close to Scarborough are many old ship wrecks, mainly ships that were sunk in the war, and some old trawlers. these wrecks can produce good Cod, Ling, Pollock, and Many other fish.

Skylark Skipper Nick Gough's Photo
About the Skipper:

Nick is a keen match angler fishing from the boat and the shore. Over many years he has fished in the Scarborough Boat Angling Club, the Scarborough Angling Festival and the Scalby Mills Angling Club and in the last few years he has gathered many trophies and prizes. As well as fishing Nick also enjoys gathering and digging his own bait to ensure he has the best possible bait.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, Nick with his lifelong knowledge of the area will take you to the best spots for a successful day’s fishing.

First and foremost Nick is an angler and admits to having a passion for bait fishing from the shore and the boat for Cod. During the summer Nick feels there is not any type of better fishing than catching Pollock on light tackle using lures. Obviously cod is the main target species of all the charter boats and we have had some excellent fish with both quality and quantity coming aboard

    i went with nick on 14th july on a 6 hr wrecking trip started off quiet and some moving around searching for fish but in the afternoon nick returned to the first wreck and found the fish .
    everyone caught something to take home so all good in the afternoon.
    nick will not go out on fruitless trips just to sail around to make money even if the weather is ok if he thinks the trip regarding the wind direction is bad for catching he will give you the option of rebooking in future rather than take the money and run.

    Top evening fishing last night with my 10 year old son,perfect Dad & Lad time.
    The service provided by Nick and his mate was absolutely first class.Nothing was too much trouble,everything was well explained.
    The Skylark was an absolute pleasure to be aboard,we will be back.

    Skippers Reponse: Many thanks for your glowing review Graham

  • 5-star Dave K (03/08/2018)

    For anyone who has not yet fished on Skylark do your self a favour and book a trip the skipper Nick never gives less than 100 % effort and is a pleasure to be at sea with there's more than a few well known boats/skippers that could do with taking a leaf out of Nicks book when it comes to customer care less bullshit and more effort.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks for a great review.

    Hope to see you again soon

    Photos from todays trip again some cracking fish inshore.

    Small 4" shads seemed to be the preference today with white, orange yellow and red working the best.

    And a extra bonus when steaming back we had bottle nose dolphins bow riding and leaping around the boat

    A really good 8hr inshore trip today

    Matt has been trying to beat his pb best cod for numerous years and today he finally got his first double weighing 11lb 3oz

    Overall there was alot of codlings about today and among them a good amount of better fish and mackerel too.

    Some belting fish on todays offshore trip

    Best cod today was 11lb but we had several good size fish including a belting pollock over 9lb

    Baited feathers seemed to be working best today.

    With wrecking tides this week hopefully we get some settled weather to keep going offshore but unfortunately we keep getting easterly spells at the moment.

    26 Jul 2020 by Nick Gough

    Not ideal conditions today with a fresh north westerly blowing nearly all of the trip

    But the lads still managed to pull a good amount of fish aboard

    Some good size cod and pollock as well as plenty of just size cod which were returened if they had a good chance of survival.

    The mackerel seam to be finally well established but are patchy in places but we have finally seen several string fulls come aboard.

    Another cracking day today. The 5 anglers aboard very happy with thier catch still a good amount of cod about.

    Seen a few more mackerel starting to show but very patchy.
