About the Skipper:
Hi I'm Lyle i'm a born and bred local lad, been fishing the waters around Weymouth and Portland since the tender age of 5 years old and since then I have developed into a well respected young skipper in the port. On leaving school at 16 I joined as crew aboard the famous Weymouth charter boat Tiger Lily, skippered by the legendary Chris Caines and over the next two and a half years gained masses of experience from Chris. At the age of 17 I became the youngest skipper in the country and from gaining further experience running boats such as Tiger Lily, Lone Shark, Channel Chieftain, Flamer and Revolution and small stints as a commercial fisherman, on various vessels in the port I decided in 2009 to take the leap and purchase my own boat for charter angling. Now with the massive investment into my second and third vessels you can now see that I am in it for the long run! In my spare time you just can't keep me away from boats for the past thirteen years I have been an active volunteer on Weymouth Lifeboat Crew.
The Supanova Charters fleet has expanded with the purchase of 'Meerkat'.
Meerkat will operate all year round and be skippered by local lad and Weymouth's newest, upcoming skipper and angling fanatic Ryan Casey. Meerkat is a near identical boat to Supanova II, unrivalled catamaran stability, good turn of speed and all the mod cons and comfort you should come to expect from a modern sport angling boat.
If you need a trip that will require two (or more) boats then look no further.
For a trip with Weymouth's future check out the Meerkat page within deepsea or drop Ryan a line. 07776182782 firstname.lastname@example.org
It wasn't just the Bream that were there in abundance. It was a great year for Porbeagle shark sightings. We managed to hook a few and had a good laugh on a few occasions. Some other great fish too as you can see.
Summer Autumn 18
The Bream have been an absolute savior for the latter part of our season, absolutely fantastic fishing has almost been guaranteed throughout summer/autumn. Here are some of the better ones.
Summer Autumn Weymouth Flatfish 18
There were some cracking Turbot and Brill around this year. Plenty of small ones on the Shambles throughout the summer. We spent some serious time sussing out a few different marks to target them. We weren't disappointing.

Alderney Tope Tastic 18
Well in July I had one of my most memorable trips to Alderney ever. It was little different to any other Alderney trips as the lads only wanted to Target the Tope around the island. We managed plenty of Mackerel Weymouth side before fishing for Congers on the way over. What followed over our two middle days was some superb Tope fishing. Not loads of fish but all lads on board managed fish over 50lb with the best nudging 70lb.
Special catches in 18
Well this year produced no fewer than 14 John Dory's, never seen so many in a year before. The odd crustacean, one chap caught 3 scallops in 3 drops! Octopus and the first Angler fish we have seen made an appearance.
Summer Wrecking 18
The wrecking took a turn for the worst throughout April with the Pollack not really getting back going again after spawning, once we got onto May they started to pick up pace again but unfortunately Cod catches throughout the summer were fairly sporadic.

Adlerney Early trips 18
It's no secret that the fishing in Alderney has been pretty tough the last few years especially for the big draw of the Turbot and Brill fishing. It's proving increasingly difficult to find the better fish these days but if as you all know if you keep going and put the hours in the you can reap the rewards.
My good friend Glenn Knight managed his first double figure Turbot after years of trying on a trip to Guernsey. Well done Glenny!
Early Summer 18
Well in early May for the first time in years the Mackerel arrived almost as they should. This produced some of the best Tope fishing I have seen for years, loads and I mean Loads of Tope! At times impossible to even get a bait to the bottom and some crackers up to 40lb +
Well the Plaice did come back, and with vengeance for a good few weeks and then disappeared again like flicking a switch. It's a funny old game this fishing lark, it very much seemed like the Placie fishing of the 90's, where you had about 4 weeks to get it done and then they would be off again. Will they be back next spring........ We shall see!
Barry O'Leary with the best of the year for us. 5lb + Plaice. Barry was absolutely on it that day, pulling in Plaice after Plaice!
So as the Pollack spawned, our attention wrecking wise turned to the Ling. Some great sessions were had, perhaps not quite as good as 2017 but some good fish around. Unfortunately it was the worst April I have had for trips since I started so when the tides were right we just couldn't get out there. Inshore the Spurdog fishing was just superb, some cracking Specimens up to 20lb+ Wreaking havoc everywhere, Steady Blonde Ray fishing for those that wanted to have a go. The first of the Turbot turned up Late April and also a Plaice or two! Was this the return????????
Terry the Ling tickler with a 23lb Ling, landed using a mackerel bait on 100lb trace drifter over a mid channel wreck.
Good run of Pollack continued Mid Channel until the latter part of March when the fish spawned and fishing slowed up a bit.
Earl certainly showed the boys the way recently, Top rod for the day with this one his best. Just under 17lb.
