It’s been a great summer so far. The sun is shining and the fish are now inshore. We’ve already had some good catches of cod and pollock on the inshore wrecks and the bream are now in. Eastbourne Angling legend Jim Whippy and fishing partner Graham Bird recently enjoyed a day fishing some of the wrecks 10 miles offshore. As you can see from the pictures below some nice cod and pollock were caught on a selection of jellyworms.
Eastbourne Airshow is also fast approaching. It’s a fantastic day and what better way to watch it than being out on the water. You get a unique view of the planes without the hustle and bustle of the seafront and you could even catch a few mackerel while you watch! Boats are still available for the Thursday and Friday of the show. Give us a call!
As previously mentioned on this site we are pleased to confirm that in addition to Isobel, our Arvor 230as boat ‘Stonefisher’ is now in operation. Booking is as usual done via the online calendar which has now been updated to reflect the number of fishing boats available.
The RYA training school (Sea Training Sussex) seems to be very popular. Eastbourne fishing legend Jim Whippy recently did his RYA level 2 powerboat course with regular Harwell customer Danny Masters. The practical element of the course was conducted on Isobel, which, for the angler, provides a much more realistic experience than driving a RIB. You can read all about his experience in the Janauary issue of Boat Fishing Monthly. There are a host of training courses both shorebased and practical and I cannot recommend them enough. Have a look at the training link above for more info.
