Mistress Linda is available for angling from the 1st time budding angler to the most competitive,
Photography / Corporate (food can be provided on request) and that special day be it Stag / Hen parties or a BBQ afloat watching the famous Bournemouth Air Show, we also specialise in family days doing a spot of fishing enjoying a swim off the famous Studland beaches or sitting back and relaxing (full Ladies facilities on board).

We have the facilities on-board to keep your catch in pristine condition for your journey home.
Come and join us on a trip to the wrecks to catch Cod, Pollack, Ling and Congers or drift the banks for Turbot and Plaice, enjoy the sport of Bream on ultra light tackle, catch a Tope again on light gear, 'live bait' for Bass or just enjoy a general day out fishing viewing the superb scenery surrounding Poole.

About the Skipper:
Boyhood fanatical angler started fishing in 1968 then moved into chartering, long serving Professional Boatmans Association Director.
I have many years experience fishing the offshore wrecks and inshore marks having been Top Boat in all the major Competitons fished from Poole over the years. I currently hold an RYA Yachtmaster with engineering certificate and STCW95 qualifications. I have delivered and skippered boats in Croatia, Corfu, Kefalonia and several other Med areas..

 


Plaice fishing

The inshore Plaice fishing is going well with well over 70 landed yesterday along with Bream, Mackeral, Grey Red and Tub gurnards making it a great days fishing

Spring update

When the weather allows the offshore marks have produced some good Ray and Spurdog fishing with specimen fish in both species being landed and returned alive. Pollack are active on the wrecks and the cod will soon follow.
Inshore the Plaice have arrived and with the big tides this weekend along with settled weather it will be perfect for plaice fishing, good local ragworm and uncooked prawns ( do not tell the misses) will give you a better chance.

 


April 2nd and 3rd

Saturday we ventured out to the wrecks in difficult conditions and were rewarded with quality Pollack to 16lb in very good numbers and bonus Cod as well, Sunday was our Flatfish day targeting Turbot / Plaice we landed 4 Turbot to 12lb and dropped at least 3 but sadly no Plaice in all a very good weekend

 


Offshore day

Today the weather was perfect so over the horizon we went catching plenty of pollack and our 1st mackeral of the year. Pollack just kept coming with fish on every rod on several drifts. As the tide was due to ease we decided to finish the day on a bank at anchor, within minutes we were surrounded by a pod of small Dolphins giving us some great photos. Then a naval vessel passed with 4 of her helicopters circling us giving more great pics. Great day alround

 


Bream are feeding

After what seems like a very long wait for the bream to start it happened last weekend with bream coming aboard regularly and double shots as well, Most of the fish were ready to spawn and all of these were returned alive along with the bream we saw our 1st Garfish and Herring of the season in total we had 13 species over the weekend not bad for this time of year.

 


April Bream fishing

The bream are here and starting to feed they have been landed in good numbers although the bites are very finicky and delicate you have to encourage them to take the bait but this will change as soon as the water warms up and the breeding season is over then they will be hitting the baits hard in more traditional style. Come and enjoy the sport and catch your supper

 


Cod fishing

It was good to see Cod being landed in quantity and quality with the best best a 20lb 8ozs falling to a hot pink sidewinder

 


Bream Fishing

The winds have played havoc with the good bream fishing we are enjoying, many bream around the 3lb class have been landed and put back providing fantastic sport specially on long quiver tip rods.

 


Winter fishing

It is good to see the Cod and Whiting being landed and to back this up there are plenty of eels around

Great Seasonal Fishing
we are getting some good catches of Whiting the best landed so far went to Keith with a 4lb 1ozs fish, Cod are everyone's favourite and the latest angler to beat his PB is Pete from Christchurch AC with a medium Cod of 10lb. Eels continue to play havoc with the baits and over the last 3 trips in excess of 100 have been bought to the boat with 4 exceeding 60lb giving the anglers a good workout.
Wishing all anglers and fellow skippers
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year


 


Whiting Fishing

The last four trips have seen some of the best whiting fishing from Poole in many years in quantity and quality, today we set a new boat record for the number of fish per angler landed with only the deeply hooked fish being kept.

Offshore Fun
After several whiting trips the tide and weather allowed us to venture to the outer banks looking for the big Spurs (poss record breaking size), best of the day was a cracking 20lb 7ozs Spur along with lots of eels, Tope and Bull Huss.


 


December 2018

The weather has again curtailed much of the fishing but yesterday offered a weather window, the seas were remarkably calm, it was very warm and as a bonus the fish were feeding with a steady stream of Whiting, Pout, Dogs and Congers coming aboard all day and as a bonus 2 nice Bass ended the trip on a high. As soon as the weather settles we will be back out there so if you fancy a trip please call.
