True Blue skipper Steve Porter

Remember this trip well it was one of those border line trips shall we or shall we call it off and seeing the look on Steve’s face and the roll of the boat the dcision to call it off at 1300hrs says it all. No fish just pure bump and what a grind that it got worse not better. So early bath and into the pub but rather be fishing. Weather always is the main factor in trips being cancelled, in all the years I’ve been fishing I can’t recall a trip cancelled by a skipper for any other reason so not a bad average there. Charter boats have got bigger and more stable but they’re still very small fry on the ocean so the cut off point is quite critical for safety of crew and boat.

Here are some of the guys who enjoy our boat fishing trips all who are totally into the day and the level of concentration from all of them always impress’s me. Even when the days are slow the banter and the effort always makes for good day. Steaming out of Poole Quay on Poole Quay springtimea bright crisp spring morning.

Didn’t I do well and it was his first trip out, catches best fish of the day and walks away with┬áthe cash for the first and the best fish. So he has a free day and cash to spare for his fish and chips on the way home ! How jammy does it get and here is the picture that was worth a few bob and good to see a newby getting a good days fishing. Out of Poole on True Blue with Steve Porter.

We as a group of keen fisherman had the pleasure of fishing on the new True Blue cat just after it was launched. Windy day and the sea state was bumpy to rough so we saw just how sea worthy this boat was. Didn’t get a great catch that day just the usual mackerel and rays on the banks. Sea fishing is great day out on the charter boats and catching sea fish is a bonus ! well that’s how we look at it.
