Weather

Can anyone remember the weather last June 🤔 how good was that? The last few weeks have been hard work and last Friday & Saturday even more so. Winds above forecast and yesterday especially the fish in hiding! Saturday a typical example of how absolutely poor forecasting has become. Yesterday evening every forecast bar none giving 16-22mph S winds. “Let’s do it” my call, lumpy couple hrs to start, tide change then a lovely day. 28-38mph was what greeted us as we prepared for the day. Chatting with Gareth from Spindrift Charters before sailing we both suggested unprintable words to do […]

Monday 10th June Fun Competition

Monday 10th June saw the first of our fun competition days, sponsored by Pure Fishing UK LTD. They are no different to a normal day out. You simply come along and have a fun time catching with us, while we record your catch, each fish scoring a set amount of points each, with bonus points for each different species.

We had some great mixed fishing from both anchor and drifting, with a few hrs dedicated to the highlight […]

Baby shark

Another great weekend and a catch up afloat with some good friends from around the UK. Saturday the weather wasn’t the best, with north 30mph blowing for most of the morning.  We managed to sneak a few hrs scratching around the bay as the winds eased in the afternoon. Plenty of fish and species keeping us all entertained. Sunday we stuck to smoothhound fishing and it was a tale of baby shark …. Aboce, David Proudfoot owner of the popular online magazine Planet Sea Fishing  Everyone into a good few hounds, but the average size around 6-8lb well below par […]

We snuck out

Managed to sneak out on Thursday 06th June in-between the windy weather. Sea was a tad lumpy with a strong SW wind, but with a collection for friends travelling from all over the UK, we were determined to get a few hrs in on the hounds. Thankfully the fishing gods favoured us with all onboard catching a few hounds up to 18lb. Great fun and a good giggle too … More photos in Gallery 245

Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenge – day three

Last Weds 29th May, we had the third of this years Pure Fishing Smoothhound Challenges. It was a day to remember for sure, not really for the best reasons. Weather double what was forecast, torrential rain and a lack of hounds made for a frustrating day for all involved. Still everyone struggled on and Mersey based angler Chris came out the eventual winner with a hound of 9lb. Credit to Chris, who fought through some serious sea sickness to continue fishing and take the prize that day. As always big thanks to our sponsors at Pure Fishing UK Ltd for […]

Me and my big mouth in closing after day one looking forward to better weather for day two in our competition . 17-20mph north winds not the best, but workable with a decreasing forecast.

Tea, coffee, chit chat and putting the world to rights, been a fun morning 😁 With easing winds after lunch we headed back out and set the crabs to do their thing.18hounds caught our total, all of them bar a couple between 6 an 8lb, real small sharks compared […]
