  1. Boat Angling / Angling Afloat
    This isn't the most recent session ( last month ) but it really is one I will remember for a long time. I had been wanting to catch a John Dory for many years and finally the planets aligned for me. I hope you enjoy the video and tight lines.
  2. Beginners and Improvers
    Here is a video on how I target, catch and safely release Blue sharks from the boat in the UK. The Blue Shark season may be over for this year but I hope the video is useful to people preparing for next year.
  3. Flatfish forum.
    Recently learnt that flatfish prey on gobies. I'm now wondering if you could livebait gobies/blennies/small fish etc. for Flounder or Plaice. Has anyone ever tried this or could provide me with further information? Any other unusual baits for flatfish?

  7. Scotland Catch Reports
    I'm curious if there are many sharks on the east coast particularly around the forth?. As i'm thinking of trying my luck in the forth once I can get my boat out. All the posts about shark fishing seem to be either on the west coast or further up north??

    I thought I’d start a new thread about the above. Now it could be a pb, a session of a lifetime or even just witnessing a catch. I was chatting on another thread with rekamdor about boat owning. It wasn’t till he mentioned Dunbar, that the old memories kicked in. This one comes to mind...

  20. Lure Fishing How To Guides

I talked to a few skippers from West Mersea and they told that as the sea is muddy and mostly they fish at shallow muddy water, they do not advice lure fishing.
