FINS - UP FISHING CHARTERS
Fins-up Fishing Charters runs from Portland Marina which is five minutes from Weymouth on the south coast of Dorset.
Novice fisherman to the most experienced, families, or cooperate days out. Everyone is welcome.
As well as been closer to the fishing grounds, Portland Marina also has FREE PARKNG! Trollies are available to help transport your rods and bags. The Marina was built for the 2012 Olympics and has lots of great facilities. A Short stroll past the modern toilet/shower facilities will bring you to the pontoon. The Boat that Rocks’ café/restaurant boasts a large range of food, beverages and live music. A nice cold beer on the terrace is a great way to end a day’s fishing overlooking the Marina!
Rod Hire is available on Fins-up at £5 per day.
Bait can be supplied at cost price subject to prior arrangement.
Fins-up is an Evolution 38 with a Cummins 490hp It has a comfortable cruising speed of 15-18kts and top speed of 28kts. The boats is licensed for 12 passengers and 2 crew.

Nothing is too much trouble for our friendly Skipper Dan. Dan has had his own boat since he was a young lad. This has provided him with a wealth of experience and knowledge fishing along the South Coast.
From Wrecking to Reef and Bank Fishing or even simple mackerel trips, We pride ourselves in ensuring you have a safe, fun and enjoyable day.
Fins-up is available to charter or you can book on as an individual. If you have any special requests we can tailor make the day to suit your needs. We are normally at sea between 6 - 10 hours, we can also arrange shorter for longer trips.
This can be challenging, hard work but very rewarding. You will travel out to some of the south coast’s wrecks where you will be fishing in deep waters with no sight of land. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced angler we will be on hand to show you what to do or simply just to offer guidance. We will be targeting species such as Cod, Ling, Pollack, Bass and Conger Eels depending on the time of year. These trips can be booked most of the year.
Inshore Wreck/Reef Fishing
During the summer months inshore fishing around Weymouth and especially Lyme Bay can produce a variety of species and very sizeable fish. Using light tackle and lures for inshore fishing is great fun and can prove very sporting even for the most experienced angler. On these trips we will be targeting Pollack, Bass, Black Bream, Conger Eels and Cod.
Rough Ground, Inshore Reef and Bank
If you’re looking for a more relaxed day but still producing an abundance of species then this is the trip for you. Fishing with bait, at the beginning of spring we start fishing the famous Shambles Bank targeting Turbot and Brill. Black bream are also coming in to shore at the springtime but they really start arriving in big numbers in early August through to October. You will also find congers, topes and rays amongst the reefs and banks.
Not only do we offer fishing trips but the boat can also be hired out for bird watching, ash scatterings, Light Cargo Carriage, Filming and photography, surveying and much more.
CORPORATE DAYS OUT
Why not let us organize a fun corporate day out or a team building trip for your clients or staff!
We’ll take you out to the many fishing grounds in Lyme Bay and spend the day helping everyone to try and catch fish.
We can put together a package deal to include Light refreshments, cold/hot drinks, lunch, prizes, rod hire and bait.
