May & June 2019
We have had a great start to the season and weather has been good. For 22 days only 2 cancelled due to adverse weather. I won't take you to sea unless the fishing conditions are good. It's easy to take a boat out in poor weather but i believe in making sure you have a safe and enjoyable trip..
We have had plenty of big cod and most between 10 and 20 lbs best at 33 lbs
Plenty of Ling from the wrecks when anglers want to catch a few for consumption best at 50 lbs and a few over 40 lbs.
Haddock to 6lbs and a nice Halibut at 22 lbs.
What a Season in 2016
What a season! Ling to 58 lbs, Cod to 42 lbs and Turbot to 24.9lbs, Coalfish to 32 lbs,Hake to 21 lbs. The cod were thick on the ground from late April. The wrecks were full of huge Ling and plenty of Coalfish on the big tides from March Sand eel and Mackerel arrived in good numbers in June now all the food chain will click into place.
April 2012 starts with a bang! We thought March would be hard to follow when Eddie Christie captured the new Scottish record Turbot. With the weather unsettled we had to go to the East on the first day of a 3 day trip for Karl, Big Tag and the lads where we had a few Ling and Tursk.On the Sat we got offshore and after two hours of fantastic wrecking some of the crew had had enough, sore backs and arms! We did try the inshore marks but big tides meant it was difficult to get among the big flats. On the Sunday we had one decent Turbot. On the Monday we were joined by local Shetland lads, Alistair and Howard. We had 6 Turbot to 19 lbs 15 oz and plenty of Cod to 23 lbs. We also had a bonus Plaice which fell to Jan from Shetland. The weather gave us rain, sleet and sunshine, happy days!!
Cod, Cod and more Cod!!!
August and September 2012 have been fantastic. The Scottish Record for Turbot has been smashed again for the third time. Big Robert McMillan now holds the record with a fish of 29 lbs 7 oz. 15 Turbot over two days with 4 over 20 lbs! Cod to 34 lbs and Coalfish to 28 lbs in the last month, not to mention Ling to 44 lbs. recently we had to stop fishing after three hours as the hold was full and we had no more room to store fish. We put back loads of fish in the shallower water.
