Trips update

 

Please note due to the ongoing COVID regulations I'm afraid I will not be taking any more bookings other than those already booked before the lockdown period and even those bookings will only be honoured if the clients feel comfortable in going ahead, whilst obeying the new COVID risk assessment. Hopefully in the not too distant future we will be able to operate normally but realistically I don't see that happening until next year. Thank you all for your patience. Best Regards, Carl.

Trips can be booked on either an individual basis or as a party up to a maximum of twelve people. Trip lengths vary from 6 - 12 hours, however shorter trips can be specially arranged for the evenings. Inshore wrecks up to 10 miles offshore are accessible on 8 hour trips but for the offshore wrecks a 10 or 12 hour trip is recommended. Prices are as follows;

Isle of Man trips are charged at £800 for the boat, or £85 per head, per day and generally the trips are 10 hours per day.

 

Weekends during the summer months are usually 10-12 hour trips, however on weekdays any length of trip may be chosen. When booking individually I need a minimum of 7 to sail, however even if your group only numbers 1 - 3 it is worth inquiring as I will probably be able to fit you onto another individual trip

Rod Hire

Rods can be hired for an additional charge of £8.  Please note that rods, end tackle and weights are only supplied for ground fishing. 

Bait

Please ring to discuss any bait requirements. Generally during the summer no bait is required as we should catch mackerel on the way out.

Tactics

Pollack will take jelly worms, frozen and live sandeel and small red-gills fished on a flying collar rig (12-14 foot of trace).

Conger are fished for normally with a mackerel flapper or an array of mackerel chunks.

For ling, either a large mackerel fillet on a trace or a jigged baited pirk is best, occasionally they are taken whilst fishing for pollack with frozen sandeel.

Safety

For your own safety, the safety of fellow fishermen and the safety of your skipper, it is not permitted to bring any alcohol or illegal drugs aboard the boat.

Cleaning

Please help your skipper and keep your fishing station clean throughout your day. Deckhose, detergents and brushes are provided for your use. Thank you.
