Well where do we start!!
The last month has been hectic, with the WCSA Spring Festival and us moving on from Uptiding to the start of our Wreck Fishing Season, it’s all been non stop!
We only managed 4 days in the WCSA Spring Festival due to the weather hampering the majority of the competition, but despite our best efforts we didn’t get that overall winner, but regular Colin Roe did win the Fish of the Day on the Alexia, with a nice plump 4lb 8oz Codling, bagging himself £50 daily prize as a result.
As I mentioned before, we have made the change from Uptiding to now Drifting the Wrecks and Grounds further a field, and as a result the tactics have changed to Jigging Artificial Lures as well as Bait.
The water over the last couple of weeks has cleared out and in places is almost gin like, especially once you get over 6 mile off the coastline. We’ve seen some glorious weather as of late and the fishing over the Wrecks has been great for the time of year, with us seeing some lovely plump Codlings to the 6lb Mark, as well as Ling, Wrasse and our first couple of Wolf Fish of the season. No monster fish to report, but still good sport for our anglers, with average catch rates of around 30 keepers after throw backs. Bait and Artificial Lures are both doing well, with neither outdoing the other.
We have the WCSA Summer Festival just around the corner, and also the Whit and Summer school holidays, so don’t forget to get your trips booked as they will fill up fast!! We will also be running 2hr and 6hr Evening Trips this year, get in touch for further information.

We have also been having a little tidy up on the boat with the deck having a rub down and new coat of anti-slip paint ready for the busy schedule ahead.
Tight lines for now.
