Do you provide bait?

I will always have some type of bait on board in our freezer. You can buy bait locally from the tackle shop. Mackerel can usually be caught whilst fishing, but you can’t count on it! For certain trips I can try and get live launch, price will depend on availability

What tackle should I bring?

For those of you that fancy catching some big congers on the furthest offshore wrecks, you will need some good tackle. For those that do not have their own, we are pleased to supply this from our extensive on-board selection of Shakespeare and Penn, equipment. The hooks we use are 9/0 & 10/0 on a 250-lb trace line, the snap swivels are a 4/0 American snap, which perform very well The bait we use is Mackerel, which we usually catch on the day on the way out, or cuttlefish, which is good bait. The weights we use range from 10 Oz to 2 Lb. These we can supply on-board, however, we recommend that you make your own, if possible, as some wrecks there is the potential to lose lead weights. I also recommend that you bring along a butt pad to make life more comfortable, but if not these can be supplied on board During the months of January to July, the pollack arrives in large shoals chasing and gorging themselves on the large shoals of sprats that can be found around the many wrecks off the Sussex coast. These fish provide excellent sport on light tackle, ranging in size from 8 to 20 Lbs. As you can see from the photographs there are good-sized fish to be landed. This species is usually caught on the drift and once hooked will put up an incredible scrap, starting with a power dive, which will leave the angler feeling he has hooked a passenger lift descending to the seabed. It is not uncommon to have two or three anglers hooked into fish each drift Tackle required: To get the best from these fish it is recommended that light tackle be used. A 12lb to 20lb class boat rod or uptider will fit the bill. The reel should have a silky smooth, easily adjusted clutch loaded with 18lLb to 25Lb lines. Terminal tackle should consist of a tube boom to carry the weight. Long flowing traces should be used for anything up to 20ft in length. It is preferable to make this trace in two sections with a small swivel midway to alleviate some of the twisting and kinking. Hooks should be razor sharp and should be 5/0 or 6/0’s fitted to the intended bait Baits required: The baits generally used for Pollack fishing are artificial eels. Red Gills, Sidewinders, Delta Eels, Jelly worms all catch loads of fish. The predominant colours tend to be Black; crimson and orange with small eels preferred during the summer months. Live sand eel fished on a long trace will also catch. Muppets, leadheads small jigs all have their time and it is worth bringing a selection along if the Pollack are being awkward

Do you have hot drinks on board and seating?

Yes.We have covered, enclosed seating area for 12 people Free coffee, tea, etc. And also have a microwave on board should one of your favourite pies needs warming up

Is there a toilet on board?
