Brighton Inshore Fishing - Catch report 28th December 2018

Not enough interest in the first sailing, but 2nd sailing happily filled up quickly, on a very shortly announced sailing, so I should be very happy to have any customers at all really. Im still in shock that the calm seas continue. Jon was back for more, and Stuart also, returned for some fun with metals. Peter, a BIF1 virgin. And I had a game plan. Peter was keen to fish for herrings, and I was keen for more action than we had been getting, so we kept to small stuff. 35gm frolics and micro rigs for the herrings worked with heavier 75gm frolics to maintain a tight self hooking arrangement. And off we went hunting. First drifts, nothing much, other than Jon had what was almost certainly a big

With an amazing out of the blue spell of high pressure descending upon us, again a sailing day. And with enough interest confirmed, a double sailing day, which is much welcomed at this time of the year. Sold out as well. I made everyone aware that the fishing was a long way from what it was just three or so weeks ago, but I think with perfect seas forecast, the main vibe was just happy to be out on the water. First sailing, was with Jon, Shane, Ian and Armando. We began with a couple of drifts on a cod spot, and then began chasing along the rocks looking for anything worthwhile. It was pretty tough going, but always with something happening just enough to keep the interest. I noticed a few s

Out with Mark and Damo, more for air and a poke around than any great expectations. The usual anxiety, as its again been almost two weeks since I last sailed. We bagged a cod on that sailing, so I suppose at the back of my mind was some expectation. We didnt manage to get one though... so, kind of busted expectation... What we did do though, was establish that there still is some fun to be had. I think this is not the time of year to get hardcore, but if you fancy to breathe air, and still get your string pulled, some of our reef fishes will almost always be up to entertain. Whiting, pouting, wrasse, bass and Gurnards to be precise. And a great way to blow away the cobwebs of the festive tim

Brighton Inshore Fishing - Catch report 11th December 2018

After not sailing since way back in the middle of November, its always a bit of a weight on my shoulders the first poke around. Things are changing so quickly at this time of the year. And I am nervous to take paying customers on these days, as I am not "on" the fishes movements in the same way that I can be when sailing daily. So when Capt Bruce said he and his friend Adam wanted some boat time, it sort of suited to simply book the whole boat to them, and go see what is happening. Well, what is happening IS lots of change. Viz was a little against us, and as is often the case in winter seas with a hint of colour, whiting were one change, and was the first fish up. Then, not a lot. Inshore s
