Sea Fishing News With Skipper Brian Kent
The summer fishing has now started with good catches of bass cod pollock and makerel. The bream have just now started to show and we are looking forward to some good conger fishing very soon Plaice are unfortunately still scarce with one or two a trip being caught. I am looking for ward to the Weekend French trip 2/3 July. The cost for this trip is £150 with overnight accomodation on board. There are still 5 spaces left but it will be weather dependent. There will be two boats going and we will be visiting some distant wrecks. I have availability still left in June so please ring to book a trip.
We are still getting good cod fishing as the spring run of cod continues.
Today we had nearly 40 cod with one good Polish Angler capturing at least 10 up to 6 pounds each. We are still getting a few plaice and a good haul of makerel.
The run of spring cod has been unprecedented with 28 on and 41 yesterday.
The biggest went to 7lb but gave fantastic sport on light tackle, shallow water and calm seas. Lets hope it continues. We also had makerel and plaice to 2 3/4 pound.
The boat is now ready for the summer season having been completely refurbished during the last 6 weeks. We have also bouight new rods and reels and have managed to keep our prices the same as 2009/10. The water has warmed up and last week we went out and caught some nice pollock and cod. Also the plaice are now in although still not large yet. Weekends are going rapidly so please book early to avoid disappointment!
The weather has at last broken and we went out last four days on the trot.
Each day we had cod but they wern’t very big the best going to only 11lb and the majority being about 5lb.
The channel whiting however have got bigger up to 3lb but we are not seeing the quantity caught compare with last year.
Lots of cod conger and plaice and the sight almost Carribean with 40 or so dolphins gamboling in clear blue water seemed to make this job very worthwile indeed.
I personally caught several plaice the best of which went 6 1/3 pounds the best this year and the cod and conger seemed prolific.
My usual mark produced a good catch of cod and 5 congers last sat. The best cod was 14lb and the best conger about 40lb. We also had a nice ling of 17lb and several gurnards!
