  1. Here is a video from a recent spring tide coastal forage all cooked up on the beach. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    Neap tides can mean only 1 thing!!!

    Thanks buddy. The day had its frustrations but it was a Bonny day and I had some good fish so all was well.
  3. With a good set of neap tides and favourable weather conditions I set out with the plan to fish a new set of wrecks for Conger eels. Things didn’t go entirely to plan but I had some great fish by the end. Here is the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJV2JDA4tdk

    I saw that in the news. That’s some fish that!! They have a pretty well established tagging programme going on over there. It’s all good stuff to see.

    It is potentially massive. Not just to the skippers but for the areas. At a time when this tourism and fishing is slowing down the added money into accommodation and services, restaurants etc would be brilliant.

    That is one of the things that is actually slightly lacking over here is enough experienced charter skippers to do it properly. And not just have the kit to do it. That isn’t a big headed dig or anything, it’s a fishery that we didn’t have until now and unless the skippers have spent time in other countries fishing/skippering how would they have the experience? On the other hand we have a skipper local to us that is an absolute liability. He’s been given advice from the actual experts and tagging teams and still thinks he knows best.

    Thankyou very much Arry, I do find that quite amusing. Us going down and upsetting the french and Spanish by fishing in their waters.

    Years gone by there were more tuna around but sadly commercial pressure saw them really decline. You say a lot further south? You cannot go much further south from me and still be in the UK.

    They have returned consistently for around 4-5 years now. Hopefully we can campaign to have them protected under a catch and release fishery.

    Thankyou very much. It really was an incredible experience.

    Morally I couldn’t have killed such an amazing creature. Animals like that deserve to be swimming in the ocean.

    Some of you may have already seen this video as it has built up quite a bit of traction online. To set the scene I was fishing on my own - as I often do, on my 16ft Orkney 520. Intended target was porbeagle sharks over a group of reefs and ground. I will let the video tell the rest of the story....
