Just spoke to Lewis of Lyme Bay Charters and we have hatched a plan to go target Squid on Tuesday 1st November. The boat will be leaving the harbour at 3pm and returning at 7pm £25 per person. Let me know asap if you would like a space.

Last Wednesday Lyme Bay Charters took both boats down to Chesil beach to see if we could target Cod, Bream, Rays, and anything else that might turn up. 19 Anglers boarded the 2 boats armed with a mixture of baits including Black Lug, Mackerel, Squid, Yellow Tail Lug, Rag, Cuttlefish, Bluey, Mackerel, Blow Lug, and a few other baits! Both boats headed to Langton Herring, Lewis aboard the Alice Rose pushed on to get there first, so he could spend some time searching out a feature we could get both boats fishing over. Lewis quickly located a nice bank, and both boats anchored up about 400 yards from the shore. The tide was racing through and the guys at the back of the boats were needing 10 - 12 ounces of lead to hold bottom. The water was fairly clear so hopes of Cod were diminishing quickly, with that in mind most anglers opted for 3 hook flappers with small hooks, to try and target the Bream and Gurnard. After an hour of catching Dogfish and the odd Grey Gurnard, the decision was made to move to another area. Lewis decided to take the Alice Rose closer to Portland in search of Bream. On Pegasus we decided to head closer to home so as not to eat into fishing time, and hit the Abbotsury Ledges. Once we had arrived we had reports from Lewis that they had started catching beam straight away.
We were struggling on the ledges and the wind against the tide made presenting baits hard. Once the Tide had started to turn the fish started to come onto the feed, the first decent fish to come aboard was a Bull Huss over 8lb, taken on light gear by Adam Morris. Shortly after the Bream came on the feed along with the Pout! For the last hour the fishing was fast and furious,
The weather was great, the company was even better, and everyone had a good days fishing. Phil and Lewis Hodder did a brilliant job of finding the fish for us and kept everyone topped up with tea and coffee during the trip.

For anyone wanting a last few goes at the bream, we have just taken delivery of Sabpolo Japanese chinu hooks! They sound great, look amazing, and are only £1.65 per pack!! More Yuki Surume boat rods have also arrived in 6ft, 7ft, and 8ft.
We are still getting a steady supply of Calamari Squid, and we are now starting to stock up with Lyme Bay Prawns. The new predator Squid has sold out already, but we will be getting more in next week. The usual delivery of Lug, and Blacks has also arrived today.
I will get the write up and photos of yesterdays boat trip with Lyme Bay Charters on here tomorrow (as i forgot to bring my phone with the pics on today).
