Over the coming months I will feature some of the UK Charter boats and post regular catch updates from them. First in line is Flamer IV.
February saw the launch of Flamer IV out of the port of Weymouth. Skippered by Colin Penny Flamer IV is a 39ft Procharter P4 powered by an Iveco 450hp turbocharged diesel engine. With an MCA 60 mile license Flamer IV is available for charter all year round and will take up to12 fishermen plus crew.
Colin is an acomplished captain with both many notable magazine awards and fish to his credit. Weymouth is also a great place to fish out of with a wide variety of both species and fishing ground to be found at varying distances out of port. Making for some fanatastic fishing at almost any time of the year.
After sea trials Flamer IV started fishing in March. The first trip was a wrecking day. Robin Amor had the honour of catching the first fish on the new boat. Robin went down with small baited hoki’s to catch a pout in his quest to be the first but never reached the bottom catching two mackerel instead on the drop! During the trip however some nice pollack were caught along with two ling a cod and some monster pouts. Bill Oliver and Mick Nunn were the most successful anglers aboard. Mick Nunn is pictured with his best pollack weighing in at 14Ib 8oz which took a sidewinder lure.Mick is proudly wearing his Flamer 4 fishing cap.
