Captured from Glen Cairns -VALKYRIE

Two highly enjoyable days chasing Conger on mid-channel wrecks with Glen Cairns on "Valkyrie" ... plenty of sun, so it's not always exclusively for the righteous (!) .. the motley crew consisted of Myself, Ray Carrell, Peter Stotesbury, Jim Grant, Mick Doody, Roy Hebburn, Jim Wolfendale, Andy Gouriet, Dave Wright and Jason Perry - with able assistance from Bex Florence on Day 2. We had 50 eels on the first day, with a 66 pounder for myself and a 55 pounder for Mick. The second day had a slower start, with a flurry in the last 2 hours that produced 35 eels, with a 65 pounder for Jim Wolfendale. All eels were returned. The bigger ones were lifted aboard with a net, then weighed in a sling and returned after photographing. Other fish included Cod to 20lb, Pollack to 17lb, Black Bream to nearly 3lb - plus Ling and Bull Huss. Photos shown are our best three eels, with a short action video leading up to the netting of my 66 pounder.
Thanks to Glen for two great days ... see you in Norway, mate !

 

Captured from Kevin McKie's - SIZE MATTERS-Port of Plymouth



After four day's off due to bad weather we managed to get out today, we had a group of ten novice anglers onboard. There plan was to catch there first conger, so we steamed to a wreck only a few hour's away to give them some sport for the day. Little did we know it was loaded with ling to 33lb and conger to 74lb, there was three ling over 30lb caught, we boated over 30 Ling and over 50 conger.
It was none stop from start to finish, it's amazing what a few stone of fresh mackerel can do! If you fancy joining us on one of these charters before the end of the summer then get in touch.

Cheers
