CHANNEL ISLANDS

GUERNSEY - ALDERNEY
3, 4, or 5 day fishing holidays to Channel Islands looking for Turbot, Brill, Bream, Bass, Cod, Pollack, Ling, etc.

 

UPDATE

Just to confirm that I have not retired from the charter business and I am continuing to skipper trips out of Dartmouth on
‘Gemini' (previously named Samuel Irvin 3) a Blythe 10mt Catamaran.

I will skipper all of the Channel Island trips and as well as day fishing trips out of Dartmouth.

I also have a fast 7mt Cheetah Catamaran which will be MCA coded for small groups and individuals targeting Inshore Wrecks, Reefs and Banks fishing. The boat will be called 'Daisy Jane' after my grand daughter.

Bookings are now being taken for both boats.

We had a very good day out on the mid-channel wrecks to the south of Dartmouth with team 'Snowbee' (the boat sponsors) and my good pal Jim Davis. The weather was fine as we ran out a couple of hours and Nicky Brown of www.TechsecMedia.com got in some good shots for the film he was compiling on 'Wreck Fishing on the South Devon Coast'.

The film can be viewed on You Tube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIJFLDKCxFU&feature=youtu.be

From the first drift Cod, Pollack and Whiting were coming aboard with Russell Weston losing the fish of the day on his very first drop. We were fishing a variety of Snowbee lures and jigs and it was noticeable that the bigger fish came to the jigs. The weather continued to be kind to us and we stayed on the same wreck over both tides but all good things come to an end so we headed back to Dartmouth. It was a very enjoyable day with good weather, good fishing and good company.

We had a couple of nice days fishing the famous ‘Skerries Banks’ just out of Dartmouth Harbour with a great bunch of anglers. The weather was changeable but the seas were kind to us. Baits of Rag, Lug, Squid and Prawn brought a good catch of Plaice to the boat with Whiting and Gurnard supplementing the catch. No sign of Mackerel though.

A days fishing to remember!

We were mid-channel wreck fishing on Sunday and conditions were just about perfect with sunshine, calm seas and a good set of lads on board. More importantly the sea was a lovely dark blue colour with more evidence of the water clarity coming back to perfect. The anglers on board had had a tough trip some 6 weeks ago when the seas were a muddy brown colour and were looking forward to landing some decent fish. The first wreck did not disappoint with Pollack, Cod and cracking Channel Whiting being landed on the first drift and this continued kicking out Pollack and Whiting drift after drift. We stayed with this wreck until the change of tide forced a move. Fearing the worst in leaving a wreck with fish on it we pushed on. The luck stayed with us as we arrived at a big wreck which in addition to holding big Whiting was kicking out good size double figure Pollack. All the fish came to soft lures.
Jake Major was on his first boat fishing expedition had memorable trip and added several double figure Pollack to his bag. By the middle of the afternoon the boxes were full and the lads said they had more than enough fish and could I cruise back to port at a steady speed so they would have time to fillet all the fish down. Lets hope the weather and the fishing is as good for their Cherbourg trip with me in June. Definitely a days fishing to remember!


 

Friday we finally got the weather to get out to the Channel wrecks

So with a group of individuals we set sail.
It was a lovely bright day but the wind chill was cruel. Tides were small so we decided to target Ling as our main fish. With the last of the ebb tide the lads were using soft lures and Ling were readily coming aboard with no particular colour being favourite. Again the soft lures out fished the squid and mackerel baits that were tried.
Allan Painter passed his personal best as to the number of Ling he landed. In amongst the Ling catch were Pollack up to about 8lb and one Haddock which Gareth was pleased to add as a new species to his list. Despite the cold it was a very pleasant and productive day.


 

Wednesday had a cracking forecast so with a group of regular anglers we headed out to the Channel wrecks.
The tides were ideal for Ling fishing so armed with Mackerel and Squid baits we got busy.
From the first drift we were landing some quality double figure fish with the heaviest fish which was landed by Gordon Stanley and weighing in at 37lb and a few ounces.
John Webb surprised us all by catching a Plaice from the side of the wreck on Ling bait.

By 1 o'clock the boys had enough Ling and requested we fish elsewhere for different species.
Pollack, Whiting, Pouting and a very pretty Cuckoo Wrasse were caught to round the day off.
It was a memorable day out with good crack and smashing weather
