Tiger Lily Weymouth On The Cod

A classic days fishing and filming out of Weymouth on Wednesday 23rd May 2012 aboard the charter boat Tiger Lily skippered by owner Chris Caines. I am shooting the Weymouth story of which it will consist of movies based on the seasons and species of fishing out of Weymouth and aboard the Tiger Lily. A series of movies will then end with “The Best Of” style movie.

First movie was Pollock and Plaice and this one is on the Cod and by way of a break from the very hectic hard fishing for the cod some conger fishing with the hook down for a short while took place and some nice fish brought to the boat and released.

I had booked myself out for the day just filming and Chris told me we had a good very experienced crew of guys from a sea angling club in Southampton and this was day three of a five day annual angling holiday. I will have some pictures of their previous days to post soon as they had a great day on the Tuesday plaice fishing.

As you will see from the movie the weather was perfect with low winds and sun all day, like any trip until you get to the wreck you just don’t know what the conditions are going to be like or what fish stocks that the wreck will give up. Fish came up on the very first drift so that was promising and they just kept coming and coming and coming with the fish of the day just under 23lbs taken on a Rhubarb & Custard eddystone 1999 Eddy Jelly eel.

There are more parts to this days fishing to come as the idea for the days filming was to put to the test some of my new lures and did they perform well you will have to wait and see plus we tested those new Red Gill twin tails and the vibro shads. Well like any post it’s worthless without pictures well I go one better and show it live on video !!!

Enjoy the movie and if you want a good angling holiday with the chance of a fish or two or three then contact Chris Caines and try out Weymouth and what it has to offer, their Fish & Chips are pretty dam good too. View full screen 1080p HD it’s awesome.

24lb Cod pirking in the English Channel

Short but sweet one of the boys on the boat out of Weymouth decided to put a basic pirk on at slack water and it produced two quality Cod and a rush for the others who had them to get all pirked up. The chaps mother put a stone on and quickly lost it too “all good excercise” keeps the weight off !!

Great day terrific fishing and the weather behaved superb and the freezer is now stocking up again with quality vac packed Cod ready for our table. Always good to fish with new faces and some of the guys I have been out with before and I tried the new Skippy Fish scented shads with our own littlefishy jigheads and they caught on every drift so a new product tested out too.

Here is the movie, play it at full screen 1080p HD it’s awesome quality.

Cod and Pollock on new lures

Well finally got out in the channel for another wrecking trip and weather behaved nicely infact the forecasters got it it right totally and we finished the day in bright sunshine and plenty of prime Cod and Pollock. I will write more up on this trip shortly when the video footage is ready, short but shows a couple of good Cod coming on the boat and the dedicated skipper gutting and preparing all the fish ready for us hard working anglers to take home.

Here is an image from the video of the best fish of the day a 23lb Cod taken at slack water with the old faithful chrome barrel pirk fitted with trebles.
