We are the only boat to run these these trips out of Brighton.
Its a 70nm hop across the Channel for these great value 2 day trips which include shared, twin accommodation within the port of Dieppe;
Day 1 – Depart 0700 and hit a string of wrecks out in the deeper water off of the French Coast, arriving in Dieppe around 1800. Short walk to the hotel for dinner and a glass or two of plonk.
Day 2 – After a cooked buffet breakfast depart 0800 and fish the French Banks for Turbot & Brill and then a choice of more wrecking on the return trip or fishing the mid-channel banks for more flatties arriving back at Brighton around 1900.
Great value for two full on days fishing including accommodation & breakfast for £210pp or £2,100 for the Whole boat (Max 12)
It’s approx 100nm steam from Brighton to Alderney and they are all about filling fish boxes with quality fish. A typical 4 day trip (we also do 3 day trips on request) looks something like this;
Day 1 – Depart 0600 and head SW. We will pass over 100’s of wrecks outside of day fishing distance (hardly fishd) and only stop at those which light up the sounders. Aim to arrive in Bray Harbour (Alderney) around 1800 depending on tide/fishing……if we are into good fish we will be late!
Day 2 – we will all be tired so a more gentle day drifting the banks between Alderney & Guersney for Turbot & Brill finishing up with a drift down the famed Alderney Race for Big Bass
Day 3 – Up to you – we can either do same as day 2 and fill the ice chests with quality Turbot & Brill or head to the Tope grounds for some reel stripping sport
Day 4 – Early start so we get a full days fishing as well as heading back to port. More lightly touched wrecks for Cod & Pollock and for those wanting something different live baiting with 5lb Pollock for Shark…. You need the right kit as it is deep Water and big fish!
Aim to arrive back at Brighton 1800.
Two of these trips planned in June & Aug on following dates;
29 Aug – 1 Sep
Tackle, bait, crew to assist with techniques/baiting/filleting, flaked ice, refreshments and storage all included. You will only need to arrange accomodation which I can assist with.
We can comfortably fish 8 people down the side which makes wrecking/drifting the banks an absolute pleasure and will be teaming up with with my good friend and top angler Kevin McKie who runs Size Matters out of Plymouth. I have the Alderney bank marks, Kev has the Guernsey ones and we will work together to get the very best outcome for our anglers.
Unlimited live sandeel will be the bait of choice and is free – if you haven’t tried this on wrecks you will be amazed by the hit rate compared to lures.
Only 2 of these trips and Kev and I have worked out the best tides to ensure you come back with full fish boxes.
Excellent Value at £360pp or £3,600 for the whole boat (Max 12)
