Wild Frontier 2
Wild Frontier 2 is a purpose built 12 metre South Cat. She was moulded in Cowes, Isle of Wight and fitted out on Portland during the winter 2010/2011. All work was completed by Clem using a combination of local boat building skills and the professional expertise of South Cats. She is designed to an exceptional standard - based entirely on our understanding of the anglers needs/expectations and Clem's comprehensive knowledge of local conditions. We know Wild Frontier 2 is the perfect angling platform - our anglers tell us. She is maintained to a high standard and performs well.
Wild Frontier 2 is powered by twin turbo charged 330HP Iveco engines, she cruises comfortably at 16 knots. The walk-round wheelhouse gives everyone much more space to fish comfortably without tangles. Outside seating for 12 is incorporated plus inside space for 9. We have a full flush WC and facilities to make tea and coffee which are plentifully supplied.
A purpose built fish hold, beneath deck stores ice and fish for the duration of 4-5 day Channel Island trips. We have invested in an ice machine at home and can deliver ice to the boat at the end of a trip. Ice can be provided for Weymouth anglers too. We pride ourselves on respecting your catch. Fish is stored well for the duration of your trip and filleted (unless not requested) on the journey back to Weymouth. We pride ourselves on the 'complete' service and our care of your fish is of a high standard.
Wild Frontier 2 can be chartered for all types of fishing/angling days out - local day trips to the wrecks and reefs around Weymouth and Portland to a five day Channel Island trip including accommodation ashore. We can be chartered for species hunts, or general practise days for teams.Corporate days out are popular and can be combined with local accommodation. Wild Frontier 2 can be booked by an individual looking to join others or by groups/clubs. We have enjoyed success in national competitions winning Top Boat in the World International Boat Angling Competition in 2014 and Top Skipper in the European Federation of Sea Angling Competition in 2012, amongst others.
Wild Frontier 2 can be contacted via phone, e-mail, or social media - we are family run and dedicated to the business! Please check our calendar for availability. We look forward to welcoming you aboard in 2017.
A few images here to give you an idea of the type of fishing to be expected on an average Channel Island Trip. A typical trip will be 4 or 5 days long. We leave Weymouth and head to the wrecks in the Channel. Evenings are spent ashore in the great little bars and restaurants of the island and crashing out in an island B+B - although great self catering options are available. Depending on the time of year, we explore the grounds around Alderney and Guernsey during the days. All fish is kept fresh and in great condition on ice in our purpose built fish hold. We skilfully fillet all catch for table on the journey home to Weymouth. We have availability for our September trip - the 11th to the 14th inclusive and would love to welcome you!
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported Wild Frontier 2 this Easter - we have enjoyed some great fishing with superb weather conditions making for some memorable days at sea. There are still some dates available but they won't hang around - check out the calendar and get booking - it will be great to welcome you aboard.
We are indebted to Glen Cairns and his son, Zak, from Valkiry on Hayling Island for creating this door in the side of Wild Frontier 2.
This will make the job of getting on and off the boat much safer and more pleasant for all our anglers.
We are always grateful for Allan Yate's trip out in January - it marks the start to the year and he is always happy to share the experience with readers. His report of fishing last week is below. Alan has a great website promoting his lures.. Seabooms.
Enjoy the read and book up soon - the 2017 diary is filling up: 07967 029031 or :
'First trip out of Weymouth 2017 wrecking onboard Wild Frontier II with skipper Clem Carter and his crewman Reed. Criteria for the day was to trial some new lure designs in UV colours to see how they fish on the Pollock, I was also going to try out the new underwater cameras. Fishing was slow in the morning and it took off early afternoon after skipper Clem Carter moved us onto more productive wrecks and one that produced some nice ling and mine fell to a new pattern Fast Tail in UV red and yellow. Third wreck we found more Pollock plenty of them too and my results tested out the new small Maggot lures AND fish of the day a chunky double figure Pollock was taken on the new Maggot lure to MOI so a nice result for a new lure. Great bunch of guys to fish with and some of the guys were on day two of their weekend fishing break and they had a good result again. Plenty of fish for the freezers all expertly filleted by skipper Clem assisted by crewman Reed who also showed his new skills preparing the fish for us. If today is anything to go by for 2017 wrecking then it could be a really good fishing year to look forward to Oh and no the cameras didn't get tested so will have to book another trip as soon as to give them a go. Images from the day enjoy what we enjoyed.'
All fish landed on the boat will be skilfully filleted
...and, where necessary, placed on ice made by us, for you...now that is service!
We have invested in an ice machine at home and we can deliver to the boat - this works really well for longer, multi day trips and is a MUST on all Alderney/Channel Island adventures!
Your catch is our priority and we treat all the fish landed with the utmost respect, care and attention. This matters!

**SUPERB INSHORE FISHING
Thank you Allan Yate for sharing your day out aboard Wild Frontier 2 and a bigger thumbs up for supporting Weymouth port - we are a tight and supportive community proud of the expertise and good times to be shared out on the water - please find below Allan's latest review - we cant say it better ourselves!
'Disappointment that turned to elation out on Wild Frontier II from Weymouth skippered by Clem Carter. The trip plan was mid channel wrecking to find some early Cod but it was changed to inshore for the Bream, a good call for us in the end and reason was the May bloom that so colours the water it was totally un-economical to venture out mid channel for possibly only a few to no fish at all. Day started wet with rain which soon cleared and the sun shone for us, another bonus was we arrived at the mark far quicker than steaming out miles to the wrecks so more fishing time. Bream started to show which were good sized 3 - 4lbs and during the day plenty were taken with undersized returned to fight another day. Fishing at anchor bores the Ass off me to be honest which is why I very rarely do it I much prefer drift fishing keeps me more occupied BUT!! yesterday my boredom turned to excitement when I got into what turned out to be a really well marked Undulate Ray and of good size on my really light spinning kit set up for Breaming. Skipper Clem Carter had just come up front were I was fishing to let out more anchor rope and the Ray took off fortunately the tide had eased right off so it was tackle versus fish without adding in tidal flow to allow the fish to kite. With great weather and good fishing plus meeting some of the anglers from my FB friends for the first time it turned out to be a really great day and Weymouth Rocks !! Again, never get bored saying that. Here are some images of the Bream taken and my Undulate of course, even the skipper got in on the act enjoying a spot of fishing in between his other duties looking after the anglers and why not.'
**FANTASTIC POLLOCK SEASON CONTINUES
....with perhaps some of THE very best conditions yet - we are truly grateful to our regular angler, Allan Yates, who fished on Saturday for this report.
'Fishing is always a good day and today was an exceptionally good day out of Weymouth on board Wild Frontier II with skipper Clem Carter and a crew of dedicated anglers all but one I’ve fished with before so if we find the fish these chaps will do the business. Lousy drive down in the early hours due to heavy fog and steaming out to the first wreck the channel was a tad misty but calm and no winds. By the time we arrived on the first mark the sun was making an appearance and with the first drift fish were on so it was all starting to look rather like a good day. Some real clonkers were arriving on board and many double figure fish were taken using a variety of lures in various colours with the favourites, blue white, pearl white and rhubarbs leading the pack. We stayed on one wreck all day with fish on every drift and even as the tide slackened they still where on the take with various full house drifts. Plenty of fish for the freezers, plenty of practice for me ready for Norway next week and even caught some sun. If you could pre order your days fishing and weather to suit this would be what you would be asking for it doesn’t get any better than this. These images are a full house every angler on the boat with a fish and even The Poser !! Clem Carter got in on the act with a real fat girl and why not he found the fish for us on every drift thanks to GPS and a skipper who knows how to use it. I was even treated to a glorious sunset over the marina eating my fish and chips BLISS… Weymouth Rocks AGAIN !! I’ll add a PS to this skipper Clem Carter filleted and prepped all the catch on the way in as the auto pilot well Deano sat in the hot seat !'
THANK YOU Allan - please visit Allan's site www.seafishingtackle4u.com
The 2016 season is at long last is starting. We are watching forecasts really closely to grab the gaps and get out to the wrecks mid-Channel. The Pollock have been abundant with some cracking big fish being consistently caught.
In terms of Lures - the usual Sidewinders, Red Gills and Shads seem to most effective with Rhubarb and Custards, Blue and Whites and Bubble Gum Pinks appearing most successful.
We are still having to travel quite some distance to the wrecks so those booked on, wrap up in long johns, hats, scarves, good quality flotation suits and keep warm!
...and for those still wanting to grab the Last Minute slots this Thursday 10th and Friday 11th, give Clem a buzz, reply via e-mail through this website or Facebook - we have a couple spaces left - grab them and join the great Pollock Season!
****19.5lb POLLOCK LANDED ON THE WRECKS THIS WEEK ABOARD WILD FRONTIER 2****
Fantastic days fishing on Friday - super Pollock being landed with weights including 17 and 19.5 lbs.
As you guys know, all fish is filleted to a high standard for the plate or freezer on the way in harbour and is treated with utmost respect by skipper and crew. Ice can be arranged and delivered to the boat as we have invested in an ice machine at home. The whole day out from start to finish is geared around the anglers needs and expectations. We have built a great boat and are proud to share it with you.
***WEDNESDAY 24th FEBRUARY is the next Pollock fishing trip ***
