start of wrecking

The offshore banks are fishing really well at the moment, we had 14 or so rays between 4 of us the other day, plenty of these were 20lb+ fish but the camera ran out of batteries. The first wreck trip of the year was last saturday and im pleased to report there are some nice plump pollack just waiting to be cuaght.

Even though it was a huge spring tide yesterday we managed to sneak out to the offshore banks for the short period over slack. Rather disappiontingly we only had two fish but on the other hand one of them was probably a British Record. weighed at 22lb onboard and promptly released the spurdog was the biggest the boats ever seen!! We off out to the banks on thursday if you fancy it give us a ring 07787375386

icey morning

After taking a slow trip out of the harbour due to it being iced over we steamed off about 20 miles and anchored a bank. Sky Sports Tv show tight lines stopped by for a trip out so all anglers were on top form for the camera.The fish came steadily throughout the day with the 3 biggest rays being the last 3 fish aboard which was a brilliant end to the day.

First trip to the banks

Last trip for january saw us heading out the banks for the first time in a nice easterly wind over tide with rain. This didnt put the fish off with 5 blondes 3 spurs a snake a pollack and some nice whiting making an appearance.Also last weekend saw a few more cod and plenty of whiting coming aboard from the inshore grounds, it is nice to see them sticking around for longer than last year, i'm sure we will see a couple more on the coming spring tide.
