  Just to keep you up to date with things. Optimist is out of the water for quite a major refit.I was hoping that she would be back in by the end of August, but due to the weather and me getting carried away with what i'm doing, that's not going to happen, its more likely to be mid September now.I will keep you up to date with progress. but she should be good for the start of the cod season, with a loo on the deck to make life a bit more personal, I am now taking bookings for the cod season, so give me a call if you are intrested in any dates.
Cheers for now

  First just to let you all know, OPTIMIST is coming out of the water for a summer refit and will be out for most of August, depending on who things go!

The run up to summer has been a bit of a mixed bag, with a lot of trips having to cancelled due to bad weather. Its starting to become a bit of a regular thing now! And one we could all do with out. Whets making things worse when we do get out the fishing has been pretty good, weíve had some nice sized tope, the bass fishing been good, with some big fish coming up, and just lately weíve been having fun with the congers over the wrecks. But it has been the long spells of windy weather thatís dominated things, most of the offshore reef and wreck fishing being cancelled. Lets hope its not going to be a sign of things to come! Speaking with some of my skipper mates, some are struggling and when they do cancel it is with a heavy heart, after all its our livelihoods, we all known itís a disappointment but your safety and well being is more important. Anyway the rest of the year is going to be great. Loads of fish and calm seas, always the OPTIMIST.

  Good News
Itís nice to have some good news to report. Over the Easter holidays we were blessed with some smashing weather, the sort youíve just got to be out on the water fishing in.
First the bream have showed up early and weíve had some good sessions on them with a good stamp of fish, the best so far 4lbs 2oz. taken on squid. I also thought I would try my luck on the Tope to see if they had to come in early, hoping to find some bigger fish; well they had nothing massive the biggest so far in the late 30lbs bracket, but plenty of them for some good hard fighting action. Weíve been picking up plenty of mackerel at anchor while fishing for the tope, which is a great sign, and the odd bonus fish a turbot and a bass knocking on the door of 12lbs. a superb fish in top quality, lovely to see.
I had to cancel a mid-channel wreck trip because it got a bit windy but other than that itís all been good, Iíve got some more mid channel trips booked up, and Iím looking forward to see how they go, I hope the bubble doesnít burst to soon but until it does Iím going to enjoy this good spell.
See you soon

The summer has been kind to us this year, with the majority of trips going ahead instead of the usual cancelled trips which we were starting to take for granted!
The mid channel trips have been producing some good catches earlier on with plenty of Cod and Pollock, but the cod seem to have disappeared, Iíve been seeing large trawlers out their, and not from our shores!!!
The off shore banks have been fishing well, with some good Tope and rays, our best blonde ray this year is 28lbs caught by Simon Wiltshire. With a lot more over 20lbs.
The mackerel were a bit of a worry, showing up very late, but seem to be pretty plentiful now, lets hope they stay around a while yet!
My boats coming out of the water for a bit of work from the 24th - 31st August.
