Katie will be running 4 hour fishing trips starting from the begining of April and going all the way till end of October. Below is some more information about these type of trips.

Fishing on a boat as a first-time angler or an angler who is very new to the sport can be a worrying task for some people, so here on Eclipse we offer 4 hour beginner trips aimed at people who have none to very little experience.
On these trips we supply all the gear/ bait and a hot drink on the way out, so all you have to bring is yourself and a camera to capture all the fun moments with your friends and family. Our aim is to give you an insight into boat fishing, teaching you how to drop down and retrieve your gear, showing you how to detect when a fish is biting your bait (we prepare this for you.)
Please understand most fish we catch get released back after we take some pictures but if we do catch something worth keeping like Mackerel or Gurnards we can clean it for you so its ready for the BBQ when you get home, but only if you wish.

The total cost for these trips is £30pp with the above included, there is also no extra charge for lost gear. Well behaved child over the age of 8 are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
Please note a 100% deposit is required when booking a trip in advance either by bank transfer or cheque. If you are down on hoilday We can arrange deposits when booking, please also read the terms and conditions page.
If there are any other questions you wish to ask please feel free to get in touch.

For more information please contact Ryan on 07776182782 or ryancasey1@hotmail.com

Easter half term

Well with kids on holiday on there Easter half term break it only means one thing, its fishing time. With Sundays forecast looking perfect it would be rude not to get out there and have ago. Katie was the skipper on the day with two 4hour fishing trips. The fishing was better on the first trip than the second but fishing in general was hard over all even with some of Weymouths big charter boats coming inshore looking for some fish, but even with the fishing hard it still doesn't mean we don't have a good laugh when out there and we always see fish get caught no matter how hard it is.

Mornings trip on there first drop a stunning 8lb Thornback Ray.

image two of five

Closely followed by a couple of Dogfish what everyone loves to see and to be able to feel there sandpaper like skin .

image three of five

Another Ray hooked an hour into the first trip but unfortunately managed to slip the hook, there is not a worst feeling like this when the fishing is hard especially for the skipper.

image four of five

Out on the second trip and again straight into a strap conger for 17 year old Adam from Southampton.

image five of five

The final Ray of the day fell to Jamie out on his first ever boat trip whilst he was down for a long weekend down in Weymouth.

 


Half day trips underway

Well this time of year we get to start doing some 4 hour beginner trips even more so because the kids have broken up for Easter. We had are first one of the year last Sunday and what a great success as the water is still so cold from the long winter we've had. Cant wait for the sunshine and like evenings so we can get out and have another go.

image one of five

First fish of the day on Laura's first drop a very welcome Thorn back Ray.

image two of five

Next up a Farther and Daughter out enjoying the calm weather. Dogfish is a very common fish for us in Weymouth but if your a first time angler or a youngster these fish are more than welcome to keep you busy and to see how its done.

image three of five

When your out there you just never know when a fish of lifetime might just come along and this time it jumped on Claire's rod and after a long battle this cracking thorn back of 16lb 14ozs was brought to the surface.

image four of five

This time a Mother and Daughter duo. an activate for the whole family.

image five of five

Katie and young crewmen cleaning the boat and getting the gear ready for there next trip.

 


Round 2

Tuesdays forecast was a lot better for us, so we were able to get out a lot further to try for some better ray fishing along with some Whiting and we were not disappointed.

image one of five

First decent fish of the day fell to a regular angler from Andover with a 14lb 14oz Spurdog.

image two of five

Next up was local angler Jamie with his first every small eyed ray.

image three of five

Then along came some Blonde rays as we swung over the ground covering the sandier patches on the rough ground.

image four of five

Then a quick move to some different ground looking for the Whiting for tea and we was not disappointed. Jack here with a nice double shot.

image five of five

Even i managed to get a few drops in to try catch me some fresh dinner for tea and here i am with a 2lb Whiting to cook for me and the partner.

 


Break in the weather

Well at last the boats back in the water and ready to go and at long last we got a small break in the weather to be able to get out and have ago. Sunday was the worst day for weather so we wasn't able to get out far but the fishing was still steady for my group of hire rods on there 2nd ever boat trip.

image one of five

First decent fish a 12lb Thornback.

Always love making them pretty

We always love winter time when we get the boats out to give them all a good clean to sort them out to get them ready for another year of fishing. This year Gypsy it was an exciting one giving her all a fresh coat of paint, Some deck work, new radio equipment fitted and much more and the biggest one a name change from Gypsy to Eclipse . Hopefully over the next couple months of months we will have some exciting new about Eclipse and what we will be able to offer in 2018.

December Bream/ Rays

Well its not very often we catch many Bream in December but this year has been one of those years where we have been able to along with a nice steady run of Rays and Squid on the way home.

First image of three

Nice Lulworth banks Bream for Dave.

First image of three

Jon Rollason with the boat record Spotted Ray weighing bang on 5lb.

Another nice sized Bream not as big as the summer run we get but for December winter Bream fishing its nice to see.

First image of three

Katie went back out in the evening and caught her personal best Undulated Ray weighing 15lb 10ozs.

 


Inshore Ray marks

A day on the winter Rays and some Squid fishing on the way home. its amazing some of the fishing we have so close to the shore.

image one of five

First Ray to the boat is a nice specimen Undulated Ray for Peter from Bristol.

image two of five

Closely followed by Gordon also from Bristol with a nice 3lb 8oz Spotted Ray.

image three of five

Big Squid for Mikes tea.

image four of five

Jack from Southampton with his first ever Squid.

image five of five

Nice way to finish the Ray session with a 15lb Blonde. 3 different species of Ray in 1 spot, that's what we like to see.

 


Winter Whiting fishing

The last day of 2016 and what the best way to spend it. Most charter boats don't do much in the winter for so many reasons but Gypsy will be running all winter catching the winter channel Whiting along with Rays/ Congers/ Cod and so much more. With all day trips starting as little as £35pp how can you go wrong. All gear and bait can also be supplied so if you are a completle beginner and fancy starting something new this is the way to go.

image one of five

Katie straight away into a big fish.

image two of five

First fish to the boat was her 8lb Thornback Ray. A lovely meal if you like Skate wings but we do like seeing them swim away as well but the choice is all yours.

image three of five

Perfect example of prime Whiting caught by myself of a 3 hook baited feather rig. On Gypsy we look after you're fish and gut/clean them on the way in for you, so when you get home there is no mess for you to sort out.

image four of five

They were coming in thick and fast as the tide started to change.

image five of five

And just to top it off she only went and caught the biggest Whiting as well. 3lb 4ozs

 


Weymouth angling center evening trip

WAC and friends came out on a 4hr evening trip from 6pm till 10pm and had some good specimen fish and a good varitey for an inshore mark only 4 miles out. Some people don't like the idea of are later evening trips because of the little bit of dark we get at the end of the trip but all fishing is done in the light and the journey home will start to get dark but it really is amazing seeing Weymouth light up from out at sea.

image one of five

Aaron normally spends a lot of time fishing on Weymouth's piers but came out on the boat for a change and had his first Conger eel.

image two of five

WAC memeber Harry is a top Carp angler but he came and gave an evening trip ago and caught this 6lb Bull Huss.

image three of five

Number 1 customer American Steve hooks into something good.

image four of five

After a 5 minute battle Steve managed to boat this stunning 10lb 4oz Smooth hound.

image five of five

And just to top it all off Aaron went a caught this belting Bull Huss of 13b on his last drop.
