Fishing and weather has been a bit of a nightmare over january but now its started to settle down we been getting back out a bit more. When we have got out finding some nice size fish cod to 11lb and skate to 14lb dogfish have thinned right out thank god.
As we get closer to spring more and more fish are turning up the spring run should show some very nice size and numbers of cod and rays few spur dogs showing up also

Well the thick fog dose not hold us back in fact we can get in stealth mode!!!
 The Cod fishing continues our main target now most fish a good size and very good numbers offshore and inshore too. The avarage fish are between 4 to 8 lb had a few better ones just under 11lb as you can see in the picture below and the water is still warm it can only improve more as it cools down. Still plenty of rays around had one at 13lb on the 2nd november plenty dogs and whiting too. I know i keep saying it but this will be a season not to be forgotten with such a nice stamp of fish and good numbers take advantage of the mild weather and good fishing while you can not many weekend space left booking for 2016 now  individual or whole boat mid week dates still available  thanks skipper mark peters

There is good numbers and decent size bass coming out a bit further off shore on out shallow water marks worm and lures working well.
The rays are increasing and moving back in shore now so some good numbers on the ray side if you target them on the right grounds plenty of action.  T
The hounds seem to have move down river a bit still good numbers to be had on the hermits and squid to 15 lb.
 We have  been getting a few cod to 6 lb the last week not sure if the early arrivals or late stragglers but they have moved on to our grounds between the fleet herd of over 20 had this weekend and we had 6 so its a good sign for the season to come if they are already showing and a nice surprise. 
Mackerel still a bit thin on the ground but few more about now nice mixed bag about around gurnad dogfish sole small tope also coming up.

March the fishing has carried on regardless bit slower than last month but plenty about more rays around now dozen last trip to 13 lb as we move near the season. Still plenty codling around in the 3_6 lb bracket plenty for every one if you fish right still a few bigger ones lurking about herd of the trawlers still getting a few double figure ones but they are hard to come by still there is hope. cod season will come to a close in the coming months so if you want the last of them nows the time to go won't be too long now then we will be on to the rays and bass very soon up date 9th march bigger cod about now had 10 between 5lb and 8 lb last trip well worth going if better cod is what you want before they go

Well the wether has been a nightmare only being able to fish inshore for most of December. plenty of codling up to 4lb inshore the codling are putting on weight so are a nice size now few thornbacks inshore and plenty of whiting too. the dogfish have disappeared finally when we are able to get offshore the fishing is much better plenty of thornback rays to 13lb and good sizeable codling to 5lb the bigger cod are there now had a few around 10lb but we lost a easy 18 to 20lb as it surfaced last week shook the hook to the anglers disappointment january we will be targeting mainly the bigger ones now when we are able to get out there so watch this space.
merry christmas and a happy new year to you all thank you for all your support through this year see you all in 2015 with a few new tricks up my sleeve
