Summer wrecking trip CANCELLED and REBOOKED

2 July 2018

The July 6th trip has been cancelled and replaced with a new date on July the 20th. Let me know if you can make it.

CANCELLED: First pollack trip of the year

14 January 2018

The trip with Clem on the 19th has been cancelled, as Clem has had to rejig his calendar when an accident meant his holiday got cancelled. This does NOT count as a bad start for the year, as the weather is looking dreadful all week, so having it cancelled early is actually a good thing. 2018 is going to be brilliant.

Eeling on the 15th cancelled

13 December 2017

Yup. Our bad run continues as our last chance to catch an eel this year is called off, due to slight gale force winds and high seas.

2018 trips online

22 November 2017

Most of our 2018 dates are now available to check. We're still waiting for a few more to come in from Jon Himpfen and Ivan, but the majority are now online. Check them out, and see what you fancy. We'll be in touch when bookings open...

Ocean Warrior off the cards for now

22 November 2017

Dave's taking a break from fishing for a few months, or possibly a little longer. It's a great shame, but as and when he comes back, we'll be ready to fish with him again. That means that we'll be spreading our fishing between Neil French on Spirit or Arun out of Littlehampton, Jon Himpfen on Misty Blue out of Eastbourne and Clem Carter on Wild Frontier in Weymouth. They're all great skippers and I know we're going to catch plenty of fish. If we ever get out again.

New end of year dates

14 November 2017

Ocean Warrior has moved

18 May 2017

Dave is no longer fishing from Newhaven, he's fishing out of Brighton Marina from now on, including the trip booked for this Monday.

Parking is free in the marina multi-storey car park. Use postcode BN2 5UT for Sat-Nav directions to the car park and follow the signs as you enter the marina. Dave says you need to go in the top end and then go down 1 level to level 7. Go to the far end and park there, and you're very close to the walkway down to the quayside and his boat.

FRIDAY: New wrecking trip

18 May 2011

Dave has offered us a replacement trip this Friday the 20th of May. There are plenty of cod and pollack on the wrecks and we should get a bit of time at anchor too, so bring eeling gear. It'll be mainly drifting though.

Week of 21st

18 March 2011

There could be a trip to a wreck groaning with cod and bass (the one we had all those bass and pollack off last year) this week coming. Let me know if you can do it and I'll let you know if we get a window in the weather...

Another bonus trip...

16 February 2011

Dave says there are cod ("big and a lot" are his precise words) on the Sub at the moment. The weather is looking crap for Monday's trip, but he'll let us have a date as soon as it calms down. Make sure you're free.
