The Meerkat is an exceptionally stable vessel both at anchor and on the drift,
At 11 metres x 4.5 metres she has plenty of room for all on-board,
Powered by twin 200hp turbo charged diesels she will cruise very comfortably at 15 knots and will achieve 23 knots at sprint speed.

Safe and Stable.
Safety and Stability is the key to a successful days sea fishing, if you feel safe, secure and comfortable you are far more likely to enjoy your days deeps sea fishing, if you are looking for a good day at sea catching some great sea fish then you have come to the right place!

As a fishing platform, she is excellent, she makes very little fuss in the water due to her very fine entry bows and because she makes little fuss she is also a very dry boat even at speed in choppy waters!

The secret to her stability is due to her being a displacement boat instead of an ordinary planning boat, this means she cuts through the waves instead of crashing over them.

About Ryan

Here is a little about my history and how I have come to be the skipper of Meerkat.

I am a born and bread local lad, I started angling at three years old with my dad down on the piers in Weymouth catching a variety of small species, from these first initial adventures with a rod I very quickly became hooked.

My first trips boat angling were again with my dad on his boat Blue Dart which was based in Weymouth. We used to fish the many reef and bank marks in and round the Weymouth and Portland area.
This began my interest in boats and boating and throughout the years angling and boating developed from an initial hobby to a total passion.

I have been an active member of Weymouth Angling Society from a junior taking part in their monthly shore and boat competitions for many years which has allowed me to hone and develop my skills in all aspects of angling.

I was very fortunate in July 2014 to be selected to represent England youth in the Shore Home Internationals held in Montrose, Scotland where we were honoured to win Team Gold.

Also in September 2014 I was again selected to represent England Youth this time from the boat and this time in the World Championships held in Weymouth. We were once again honoured to claim Bronze in this event behind a very strong Italian and French Teams.

2015 will see me once again represent my country in the World Youth Shore Championships in Holland.

I first got into the world of Charter boat angling in 2011 when I was given the opportunity by Lyle Stantiford, skipper of Supanova in Weymouth to lend a hand and pass on some of my knowledge to his customers at weekends and during school holidays. I very quickly realised that this was my dream job and hopefully one day would become a reality.

I continued with Lyle full time on leaving school in 2013, this was when I really began the learning process of how to be a successful skipper. All the time I was asking questions and noting things down, Marks, Tides, where to be and when etc and also at the same time clocking up my sea time and experience to qualify to sit my yachtmaster offshore practical exam.

In the early part of 2015 I successfully passed my Yachtmaster after 11 hours at sea and a rigorous continued assessment of my ability, seamanship and safety at sea.

I am now the proud new skipper of Meerkat and I am very excited to further my skills and show all you anglers out there what I am capable of!!!

Whether you are a seasoned angler looking for a 4/5 day channel islands trip, a specimen hunter looking for that new PB or somebody who has never held a rod before and just want a fun day out with friends and family then look no further. I am happy to pass on my knowledge and also learn from you, come and enjoy a day with the future of Weymouth's Charter fleet and feed off my enthusiasm for the job and sport.

***** SHARK TRIPS 2020 *****

We can now safely say we can offer Shark trips aboard Meerkat anything from 3 to 5 days away to Dartmouth.

Rough lay out on what to expect on a 4 day trip away to this amazing bit of coast line.

Day 1 Bait/ Ground bait fishing for the Sharks then a drive to the Skerries bank for some Plaice fishing and we are only a 20 minute drive to the harbour then.

Day 2/3 it will be all about the Sharks leaving in between 7/8 and returning any where between 5/7pm and i will have a restaurant already booked for when we get back for dinner if you want to join us. If the weather is to bad for Shark fishing we will stay around Dartmouth and target all the mixture fishing, Pollock, Plaice, Conger, Huss etc but the aim is to get everyone into a Shark at some point.

Day 4 Home time:( on the way home we will stop for some fresh mackerel for your tea and if there are plenty top up my ground bait bin, then off to the wrecks to try for some Pollock and Bass.

The days may change around a little depending on length of trip and also the weather but are main aim is for everyone to have a great and enjoyable time away with no stress involved.

All Shark gear will be supplied at no extra cost and ground bait will be provided free of charge. If for some reason we cant get enough ground bait before your trip an extra little cost will be asked for so we can buy you some fresh fish for are ground bait mixture but its a maximum of £15pp and that is last resort.

There will be a MAX of 6 on are individual trips so everyone will have there own rod when shark fishing, if it is a whole boat booking then you can bring up to a max of 9.

***** Prices for 2020 *****

Whole boat booking £750 per a day
Individual £125 per a person a day

If you have any questions about these type of trips please feel free to ask on 07776182782 or ryancasey1(at)hotmail.com

2019 is fully booked for are Dartmouth trips but the diary is open for 2020

Evening Trips

One of the best parts about are job is getting the kids out there fishing and showing them what the sport is all about, as the nights get lighter we are able to get back out in the evenings after are day at sea and get the family's out there enjoying the last of the sun.

Eclipse fishing charters also offer 4 hour beginner trips through out the summer for those groups or individuals who wish to get out in the day time. For more information please feel free to contact us on 07776182782 or ryancasey1(at)hotmail.com

Sea Fishing Image Number One

Lovely evening catching plenty of Dogfish and the odd Ray.

Sea Fishing Image Number Two

It was a great pleasure having Birthday boy Sam out with us celebrating his 10th birthday in style.

Sea Fishing Image Number Three

Its all about getting family's out there enjoying them self's, here we have Sharron and her perfect daughters showing off a Thornback Ray.

Sea Fishing Image Number Four

You just never know whats going to turn up, Here's a prime example only 2 miles out the harbour and a 16lb 2ozs Smoouthound turns up.

Sea Fishing Image Number Five

The past 5 years Sharon and her husband have brought there family out twice a year and we still cant get them to touch a fish.


April's Fishing

The wrecks have still been chucking up some perfect condition fish, still not the easiest to catch but the guys who listen and keep on trying get rewarded with some prime fillets and great pictures to take home. Best colours are still the Skerries, Rhubarb and Custard and Pinks but its not to say the other colours don't work.

Inshore Banks have been producing a steady run of small Turbot along with the slightly better fish and also some nice chunky Brill. Best one so far goes to a local angler Derbs. ( Picture below)

Inshore Reefs are chucking up loads of specimen Spurdogs along with some stunning Blonde Rays and also some decent number of Bream have just started to show.

Sea Fishing Image Number One

Regular Scott from Andover was on top form on his last day out wrecking useing a mixture of sidewinder lures on a 20foot trace with 20lb trace.

Sea Fishing Image Number Two

Local angler Derbs with a lump of a Turbot caught from the famous Shambles.

Sea Fishing Image Number Three

Sea Fishing Image Number Four

Rory Eastlake a member of the England youth team getting away from the beaches and spending the day with us on Meerkat.

Sea Fishing Image Number Five

Aaron Aldermen an extremely keen angler with his personal best Spurdog.


March 2019

Its not very often we get flat calm conditions in March to be able to get out amongst the fish but this year it fell perfect towards the end of the month.

Wreck fishing so far has been steady with fish some days harder than other but still manage to tickle some out. Winning tactics so far have been extremely long traces with 20lb mono and a selection of lures from bright colours to natural colours.

Big fish day was extremely crazy fishing with non stop Spurdogs and Blonde rays with the odd Congers and Bull huss. Plenty of guys catching there first time Spurs and some new personal best Rays. Tactics was a simple running ledger rig with 100lb mono 6/0 hooks with a mixture of Mackerel and Squid.
Best Spur on the day 17lb 12oz
Best Blonde 16lb
Best Huss 8lb 4oz
Best Conger 25lb

We also managed to get out for the first look at some inshore banks for some Turbot/ Plaice we wasn't disappointed with some prime Plaice braking the surface and the odd chicken Turbot/ Brill.

its a good start to the 2019 season so fingers crossed for the rest of the year.

Sea Fishing Image Number One

Hire rods getting the hang of the Pollock fishing on a extremely flat calm day.

Sea Fishing Image Number Two

Enzo from the jolly boys wattsapp club with his first Plaice of the year. using a 18inch trace with Green/ Black beads with a size 1/0 hook.

Sea Fishing Image Number Three

Gill has been fishing for 45 years to a high standard and he has never caught a Spurdog till Sunday. his best one went 17lb 12ozs.

Sea Fishing Image Number Four

Best Plaice went to Jon Rollason with this stunner 4lb 6ozs.

Sea Fishing Image Number Five

2019 best Pollock so far is Mr Green with a 19lb 2oz lump caught on a Skerrie sidewinder


Start of the wrecking 2019

Well a very hit and miss start to 2019 on the wrecks for the Pollock. One day there is plenty of life showing and some good Pollock fishing action then the next day it could be a little bit slower but still some good winter lumps being caught through out the day. The theory behind this at the moment is due to some extremely massive south west swell and some huge tides pushing through the water this will stir the bottom up making the visibility down 200ft extremely dark so harder for the fish to see and harder for them to feed on the lures as all they are going by is vibration from us winding.

So Hopefully as this weather starts to calm down and now the tide is out of the water the dirt should slowly start sink again and hopefully the fishing will pick up with it.

Sea Fishing Image Number One

Darren Harper showing off one of his better fish of the day.

Sea Fishing Image Number Two

Bill Thorton with a fine double figure Pollock.

Sea Fishing Image Number Three

Every now again i even manage to get a rod out myself.

Inshore reefs

Nice start to the 2019 on the Inshore reefs for the Rays. Plenty of bites keeping everyone on there toes with the odd Whiting coming up and when sitting it out with the big baits people were rewarded with some stunning specimens.

Spurdogs to 18lb
Blonde rays to 31lb 4ozs
Thornbacks to 13lb.6ozs
Congers to 20/25lb
Whiting to 2lb 12ozs

Sea Fishing Image Number Five

Local Beagles

These last 2 years there seems the be more and more Porbeagle sharks showing them self's in local areas especially where the bream are living and we are getting encounters nearly most days or hearing from other boats sightings of them when Bream fishing. So it only meant one thing we had to get the shark rods out and go have ago and we wasn't disappointed.

Sea Fishing Image Number Two

For example there is the very famous Skerries bank for some Plaice and Ray fishing. Also more fishing available through out the trip Bream fishing, Pollock on the wrecks or some big Conger fishing anchored to wrecks never fished before by us.

The Dartmouth Blues

Over the last 2 years we have spent a lot of time looking into shark fishing not just at home but away from home as well to work in the same format as are Alderney trips. Well this year the Dartmouth 3 to 5 day trips have been amazing and are creating great memories and also kicking up some stonking fish. In the 5 Days in total fishing for the Blues over the 3 trips to Dartmouth we managed a total of 28 with 4 over the 100+lb mark.

Big fish days

From the very first day being skipper of Meerkat whats amazing to think its 4 years ago now my aim was to show anglers that there was more to fishing than just catching fish for the table, well every year we have been doing set days what we call big fish days and its exactly that we anchor wrecks and rough ground using a minimum of 100lb line and 5/0 hooks with baits like a whole squid and a Mackerel fillet to tempt some of these big fish.
