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 eleven 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
Well well well.......... It never snows in Weymouth!! Well we have had more snow this month than I have ever seen before. A sign of the times hey! The wind has been relentless this winter and has been one of the worst for a while but that's why we put our pennies aside in the summer because you never know how long the wind will blow. When we have managed to steal a day from the weather gods the fishing has been fantastic mid channel with great catches of Pollack, with a decent stamp and fish touching 18lbs. ***** SPACES WRECKING IN MARCH AND APRIL 28TH MARCH, 2ND, 6TH, 11TH, 26TH APRIL*****
Earl certainly showed the boys the way recently, Top rod for the day with this one his best. Just under 17lb.
As is the norm for this time of year, we try to steal a day here and there when the weather allows. A nice bit of inshore action for the first trip of 2018, culminating in the completion of the Supanova/Meerkat specimen comp. Well done to all who competed and to the winners. WE HAVE SPACES SUNDAY 28TH JAN FOR ANICE BIT OF INSHORE FUN! 07976876667 The Pollack season is well underway with fish already up to 18lb with the odd bonus thrown in as well!!!! PLENTY OF WRECKING TRIPS COMING UP, CHECK OUT THE UP TO DATE CALENDAR OR GIVE US A CALL/TEXT 07976876667
Phil Barclay-Smith was the outright winner of the specimen league scooping a cool £1000 for his troubles. This 14lb Huss certainly helped him to victory!
You just never know whats going to turn up! While fishing for congers and rays recently Jamie latched into this lovely little Porbeagle, around about the 60b Mark. after a quick snap she swam off like a dream.
Paul Kuhn from Brackley loves a bit of Rod Bending action from a hard fighting Pollack. This one came on a sidewinder skerries.
Well I didn't expect it, He didn't expect it, I don't think anyone expected it!! What a cracking bonus this 16lb Turbot was for Terry Hickman while out Mid Channel for Pollack. The day was right on the limit for Mid Channel but we managed to squeeze most of the day in before having to make a retreat at 1400. All on board managed some lovely Pollack and this added Bonus made it all worth it!
The fantastic Ray fishing continues, the final trip of 2017 produced a cracking run of Blondes with us also seeing, Thornback, Undulate, spotted and small eyed Rays also!! WE HAVE SPACES ON A BLONDE RAY TRIP ON 27TH JAN 18 COME AND GET BENT INTO A BIGGIE! 07976876667
How fitting that the best Blonde of the year came on the final trip of the year. A real beauty and a new PB for my old mate Phil Rogers from Bristol. Smack on the magical 30lb
Paul Roper from Whitchurch in Hampshire had a lovely day on the blondes, He did fish like a turkey in the morning but got into the swing of things come the afternoon. Mind you he did spend most of his day babysitting his mate. Well done Paul!
So a while since i posted some pics here, my apologies. The late summer Autumn was great fun with plenty of Bream, some big ones too as you will see from some of the pics both inshore and offshore. Plenty of rays around and some nice fatties too. Last couple of channel islands trips threw up a nice mixed bag too.
The latter island trips were great fun as usual with a good mixed bag.
Clive Fawkes with a clonking Cuckoo Wrasse, this one snaffled a sidewinder intended for Pollack on the way home from Guernsey trip.
On the final Alderney trip of the year we had a good time on the Bass, Byron shows off the average stamp.

Steve Radford and chums drive all the way from Nottingham just for the day, last drift of the day and a 7lb 11oz Bass for Steve.
Mark Hillier from Fareham, Hampshire loves his flatty fishing. A cracking Brill of 6lb 4oz from Weymouth.

Poor old Billy, just days before the bass ban was lifted he landed 3 on the trot on a recent wrecking trip. He did enjoy seeing them swim off mind you. 'Bigger for next time"
A few more of these around in recent years. Sean Davenport displays a lovely John Dory. For some reason he didn't believe me when I told him they were poisonous.
Again tough action in the channel for large periods of this summer season. When the fishings hard trust your skippers chaps, listen to their advice and fish hard and catch.
Richard Wheeler and chums unfortunately didn't manage to get to Alderney because of the weather but skilfully snaffled a nice Cod on the day we managed to sneak out in the middle.
It's no secret that the fishing both sides of the Channel has been tough this year but if you work hard the rewards are there as you can see.
John is one of the more senior customers we have taken to Alderney, he showed all them youngsters the way!
I realise I have been hopeless at updates this year, this will hopefully bring you up to speed. A fantastic resurgence in the Ling fishing this year which has been a bit hit and miss the last few years. Can't wait for next April to get on a few more of these.
Kelvin is well on the mend after his mishap, great to see his rod bent into some fish again! Welcome back mate!
Tom O'Gorman is the front runner in the Weymouth Charter Boat Specimen hunt for the Ling category with this 24lb+ Ling.
