Young Solly boats a whopper!

Always good to see young anglers enjoy success and boat fishing gives them a good chance of battling a larger than average fish.

Dan Welch enjoyed a short boat fishing session over high water off Ilfracombe. He landed a pleasing blonde ray into double figures.

His young son Solly hooked a conger; Dan Said  ” which turned out to be the biggest fish he has ever had at 15lb 4oz I did have to give him a hand to wind this one in. He couldnt stop saying it’s a whopper!! Must have seemed massive to him”.

The below Charter boats all operate out of Ilfracombe giving access to exciting offshore sport for all.

Toby Bassett – Double figure spurdog

John Barbeary’s Bluefin visited some of Johns proven local favourite marks to catch plenty of spurdog with the biggest 3 at 16lb all fish were double figure fish. Several hard fighting conger to 29lb wee also boated along with bull huss.

The cold grey and damp conditions were a stark contrast to the far off climes John had returned from after a well earned break from Ilfracombe chartering. The next few months should see offshore sport continue with spurdog, huss and conger dominating catches.
