Weymouth wreck fishing for Bass Pollock and Cod

Nice chunky Bass saves the day on what was the hardest fishing I’ve seen off Weymouth for a while, numerous wrecks visited with minimal results just 10 average Pollock then this Bass taken by Moi with one of my superflex gay pink lures lifted our spirits. Expecting more from the wreck didn’t happen so I caught Billy the no mates Bass, the only bass in the village ! Good crew lots of banter quite mild but bumpy big sea racing along and clearing wrecks quickly so quite tiring on a 12oz lead.

It’s Saturday and it’s blowing a Hoolie here with rain lashing down and I’m hoping the weather abates so I can go fishing on a special invite with the MeerKat skipper Dave Gibson and this is the second attempt and forecast isn’t looking good so miserable man !! Oh well I live in hope.

Weymouth charter boat The Meerkat wrecking and lure testing day

What a great boat, skipper and crew ! a group of lads on their annual weeks fishing trip and I had the chance to jump on board the Meerkat fast BW cat and test out some new lures and my booms with them. So much I could say about this trip and the weather we had plus good fish, watch the movie and enjoy what we enjoyed.

Weymouth Tiger Lily and the next generation

Monday 11th June and a much needed day out fishing with my son Andy who has struggled all year so far to get a day off from his own business. A wrecking trip for the Cod on Chris Caines boat Tiger Lily and a singles day so a good mixed bunch of guys.

I hadn’t planned to do any filming other than to get some rigs and more new lures plus test out a new super light strong and very braid friendly sea boom I am about to launch, oh and by the way it worked a treat and stood up to getting caught in the wrecks and taking some good prime cod.

Weather was perfect and the crew were a good jovial bunch and Chris was supported by his crewman Aarron who is very supportive to the anglers in netting the fish, providing help and the tea of course. When we arrived at the first mark I put on a rhubarb fat tail worm and the new sea boom plus a 10oz ball weight with 20lb rotten bottom link and Andy one of our twin tail little fishy rhubarb and custard lures.

Bang he was into cod straight away and landed a nice fit fighting 8lb fish and I hooked into one about same weight. On the boat was a father and son team and the lad was about 12 years old but new exactly what he was doing and got into some nice cod pretty quick too. See the video and you will see just how hot he was and outfished his father and many other anglers on the boat.

We went home with a good bag of filleted cod for the vac bags and the freezer and some pricelss video was shot showing the next generation of quality young anglers coming along so how good is that !! I am out again on the 20th of June and will be doing final testing of the braid friendly sea booms and if all goes well they will go on sale just after.

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.

Turbot British record nearly smashed

Out Turbot fishing last week on the banks from Weymouth and I wasn’t lucky enough to hit the big ones but heyho I am still dribbling over the large one I caught last year so any new catches are a bonus for me.

There was a lad on the boat who had traveled down from Manchester (5hrs driving) to fish on the Katie Ann out of Weymouth. Take into account he has fished for many years and never caught a flatty let alone specimen Turbot like he landed on that day.

Taken on large live Launce and smaller sand eels you can see the action on the video which luckily I had taken the camera with me to try and get some Turbot stock footage for projects and my blog of course so I can share it.

I get as much pleasure seeing others catch fish as well as I do when I get into them, so you will see this trip was very pleasurable for a couple of anglers and one other was a little pissed off as he has fished for many, many years and never caught a Turbot so all the Beeps on the video are to take out his frustrations as the catcher was stood next him too !! Great day good crew and some class fish plus the sun shone all day, you can’t ask for much better can you.

Just a week before our trip the British record was nearly broken with a 30lb plus Turbot taken on the same banks drifting with fish baits and live eels so Weymouth is producing some good catches and especially Paul Davies the skipper/owner of the Katie Ann.

Tiger Lily The Movie Weymouth offers anglers the best

Well here it is and it just doesn’t get much better than this, it also confirms why so many anglers enjoy the all year round fishing that this south coast port offers, myself included.

Enjoy the first part of the Tiger Lily movie as it’s planned to upgrade this during the year to show the species and seasons out of Weymouth and on their vast amount of wrecks that are dotted around the area.

Details on how to charter Tiger Lily are on the movie and Chris will always do his best to cater for individuals too both beginners and experienced anglers.

Pollock’s and Plaice at Weymouth

Yes more on the Pollock’s topic and what a day I had yesterday down on the Weymouth wrecks and then back to the famous Shambles banks.

I was down to Weymouth to shoot video with the well known and probably one of the most rated UK skippers Chris Caines and the equally well rated Tiger Lily cat. I have known Chris for many years and have fished with him over a quarter of a century ago, now that is dateist isn’t it ! Chris is still as committed now as he has always been and his boat Tiger Lily shows just that committment too.

So here is how the day went, I arrived early to get some dawn breaking shots and be organised ready for the skipper and crew to arrive. The boat is awesome in its stature and it’s setup for the charter boat fisherman. I won’t go into reams of details here as the video when it goes live will do all that and you can see how the day went too plus some archive footage from Chris and images from his gallery’s.

Chris arrived early with his crewman to prepare the boat ready to go fishing and it was immaculate anyways as it’s cleaned after each trip out so as an angler I know how good it is to arrive to a sparkling spanking clean boat ready to go fishing. The crew of five arrived and it was a special occasion for one member as it was his birthday so he had to do well to celebrate it.

After discussions it was decided to split the day into wrecking for Pollock as they’re showing in good numbers and then move to the Shambles banks drifting for Plaice and perhaps a Turbot or two. Weather forecast was just as fantastic and with sun forecast with little to no wind what more could you ask for.

I was rolling on the camera as we got underway and the guy’s were kitting up ready to hit the fish. Tiger Lily is a fast stable boat and the first wreck was approx 90 minutes away so chance to catch my thoughts on how best to capture the day, Chris in action and the crew fishing and hopefully coming up with the goods and true to form Weymouth the Angling Mecca of the south coast didn’t fail to perform.

Using all the onboard electronics Tiger Lily was accurately placed forward of the wreck and lines went over the side in approx 200ft of crystal clear water. Lures were various with shads, eddystones and sidewinders the favourites. First couple of drifts to get the feel of the wreck and then then the fish started to show.

Pollock usually snatch and then hit the lures and as I watched ready to capture the action you could see just how they where feeding and as the anglers were all experienced the landing net was seeing some good fish being brought aboard.

A move to a second wreck produced some slightly larger Pollock and the usual pesky Pouting but it added to the species list so they were accepted. Chris likes to fish within the bounds of good husbandry and not take more fish than the crew are likely to consume so with each angler having fish to take home it was time to steam back to the Shambles bank and see if the Plaice or Turbot want to play on what was now virtually a hot summers day “In February 2012″

With the guy’s rigged ready with plaice kits that looked like a lady would wear round their knecks in multi coloured beads and bangles which can only be described as “Bling Rigs” the first drift got under way and we had a flat calm oily sea. First drift a good eatable size plaice came aboard and this looked promising. More drifts and more Plaice plus a couple of doggies too, well day wouldn’t be the same without a Woofer or two would it.

The final drift produced two good Plaice to the two anglers next to each other and the two fish landed in one net so it was just pure text-book stuff and I have it all on video WOW! I just wish I was fishing alongside these guy’s as it was a day to remember and reflect back on when I upgrade the video’s in time to come.

So the day has passed and time to head back to Weymouth and every one agreed they couldn’t have asked for anything better than what Chris and Tiger Lily plus fishing off Weymouth could have provided, there were some pies on the boat from a local bakers and if we had candles then the birthday boy would have had a really good party day just needed silly hats too ! but most had those on anyways.

What also impressed me was the energy of the reserve Crewman for the day as the usual guy had injured his hand but the stand-in of which at this time I can’t recall his name but will amend this later when I find it again as he was first class. He was supportive in all ways, prepared and gutted the fish, expertly filleting the catch and finally scrubbing the boat from top stem to stern ready for the next angling party to enjoy, oh and made the tea and coffee too.

So as you can see the day was pure pleasure, you will see the video very soon and enjoy what we all did out with Chris Caines on the Tiger Lily Cat.
