DAWN TIDE CHARTERS
|Posted on April 12, 2021 at 3:10 PM|
My latest catch reports from the last few weeks are on my facebook page click the link below to view the pictures and videos
Its good to be back at sea after restrictions have been eased to 6 anglers again, thank you to all my new and returning customers i appreciate the bookings and value your support il do my best as always to get you on the fish !!!
Fishing is good plenty of skate and hounds inshore and offshore some days better than others some seeing 50+ skate to 12-14lb and 40+ hounds to 8lb
The smaller bass are starting to show now had a fair few schoolie bass the other day its only a matter of time until the big numbers and and big fish start showing after they finish spawning - worm or crab bait will be needed for the bass
Had a couple of codling to 3lb inshore and a couple of small spurdogs to 8lb local so they make a nice suprise. I know there are better numbers further off if any of you fancy it let me know there is only a few weeks left to target them
My diary is busy im out most days now and when the weather allows we will be offshore but if its blowing we are still able to get on the fish inshore its going to get better and better now with the tope and big bass not too far away now !!! hopefully see you all soon

Hi everyone hope you are all well
Just a quick update the charter industry is still battling with operating restrictions and finical buisness support,
On a positive since boating and fishing is allowed during semi lockdown i decided to nip out a few times with my family.
fishings good had plenty good size bass, hounds and skate about il let the pictures do the talking.
The weekend just gone was my twins 5th birthday took them on a family lockdown fishing trip it was really good sport for them non stop smallish skate and hounds inshore, keeping them busy just what we all needed a day out on the water great memories who knows they may become skippers one day.
please keep and eye out for when lockdown gets lifted and get booked on asap as my diary is all over the place with 3 months of trips being shifted about so please bare with me il do my best to get everyone afloat hopefully not to long now!!
hope to see you all soon Stay safe everyone

As you can guess All trips will be cancelled for 3 weeks maybe more pending government sanctions and peoples lifes !!
Lets do the right thing and STAY AT HOME
The quicker we beat this the quicker we can get back at sea enjoying what our waters have to offer and getting back to normal
When the Corona Virus finally exhausts itself and the danger is over, let's do something good for our country,
Let's spend our holidays in England, eat in local restaurants, buy British products, buy local meats and veggies and support local businesses what ever they are. These businesses are going to find it very difficult to get back on their feet and survive without our help. They're suffering badly now and i am one of those along with many others.
Our products and services are some of the best in the world. Our country is one of the most beautiful.
on a positive note by the time we all get back out afloat the fishing it will be amazing with the hounds tope skate bass rays mackerel and more well and truly here with the fine weather it will be fantastic.
while all this is going on and we are on lock down protecting the NHS and helping to save life's i get to spend some well needed quality time with my family and keep them safe
take care and stay safe everyone see you all soon

Start of march
Headed out fishing after going back afloat on the 26/2/20
we had to fish inshore on the 27/2/20 due to strong winds but never the less was the inshore fishing was fantastic with over 40+ rays boated to 12lb
The ray numbers will rocket over the next 5-6 weeks so enjoy it while its here!
last season the Hounds and Bass arrived end of march so not long at all!!! the water temp is 7.5c at the moment so i personally think its all going to happen early the is season if the inshore fishing is this busy the offshore fishing should be very very busy nows time to start getting back out after a long winter its only going to get better and better now
next walk on spaces coming up are
4th 6th 10th 12th march
keep an eye on my Facebook for live video streams and updates but i will update this site at the end of every week

Well 1st weekend out after the boat going back in the water and headed strait to my secret early season skate mark and wow it didn't let me down. In total we had over 120 rays in 2 trips if we are getting these numbers now wait until full season we may beat my trip record of 117 in 1 trip. biggest was 15lb well done jason setting the bar high but del was close plenty of double figure fish and at one point we had 5 on at once. Bass will be moving in soon so always good to chuck a worm rod out just incase also there are a few codling here and there. few pictures and there is a video on my Facebook page as proof to back up my story time to get out everyone its only going to get better!!!!!!!!

Dawn Tide II t is out the water for it yearly maintenance keeping her well maintained is part of having a safe reliable vessel !! She will be back in the water on the 24th February ready for the season ahead get booking up as spring is not far away and is one of the best times of year !!!!
|Posted on November 26, 2016 at 3:00 PM|
Well the Cod haven't arrived in the numbers we hoped for no one knows why i feel it just one of those things water temp food or stocks ect !!! We have had a few around the 5lb mark and small ones too but it is hard going I'm not going to lie. skate fishing is still good all shapes and sizes they have been a bit quite the last week but they will come back on. plenty of nice size whiting around aswel finger crossed the cod will flood in any time soon and we will have the sport we hoped for this winter!!!
|Posted on September 12, 2016 at 4:09 PM|
August and September 2016
Been looking for the plaice in the estuary with success best trip was over 35 plaice to just under 4lb looking for the turbot next so keep an eye out for the dawn tide II !!! bass fishing has been good many fish around 7 - 8 lb biggest was 9,12lb but september is the time of the year for then big bass so there is still time plenty shoaling pup on the offshore banks now had over 40 last week out there all shapes and sizes! the skate fishing is coming back in force now had 67 the last trip we had a go for them all squid bait and yes i have plenty squid now. hours have been good sport this year biggest was 17lb they are going now still a chance of a double for a few weeks yet. Remember this time last year the Cod started showing so fingers crossed its all going to go to happen again very exciting this time of year we will be having a look in a few weeks for the cod so keep eye out for reports but for now we will be offshore bassing for few weeks unless the weather holds us on the skate local grounds see you all soon

July has been very exciting some of the bigger tides a bit tough and a weed nightmare in the shallows but most trips producing plenty mackerel hounds to 16lb skate to 12lb bass to 10lb few gurnards as-well all on our usual marks for july. we have started looking further a feild on the offshore banks for plaice and turbot with success plaice to 3lb and good numbers too lots of mackerel and sand eels on the same banks and turbot too and the odd bass for good measure we are looking to do this trip once a month and hit some wrecks too for the cod pollock and bass they do cost a little more as its a 60 mile round trip about 16 hours long but well worth it for the different species see you all very soon
