Great to be out. Collected Brummie Dave and his family from Exmouth - sadly no Peakie Blinders this time. Plenty of mackerel, Conger and this cracking Bull Huss. Let the good times role. ... See MoreSee Less
Cracking forecast for the weekend and Amaretto IV is free on Sunday. It would be rude not to take advantage so who fancies a day on the inshore wrecks and reefs? Should be Bass and Pollack about. Whole boat £450 or individuals at £55. Leave at 9, return at 5........and the pubs are open for a pint and debrief! Perfect. Message me or ring 07836 591084
So here we go again. Having been given the green light on the 9th June, followed by a red light on the 12th June Dorset Harbours have given us a green light again for the 4th July. I know what your thinking but our harbour is run by a Local Authority so that probably tells you all you need to know!! Anyhow WE ARE BACK AGAIN. Bookings now being taken from the 4th July onwards with priority for whole boat bookings.
Good news at last. Dorset Harbours have now caught up and as from immediate effect we can take a maximum of five anglers. This will allow social distancing etc and I have prepared a risk assesment which must be followed but we now have a workable option for those of you keen to get afloat and fishing!!! ...

Well I am afraid we're still no further forward. Dorset Council are allowing private boats to use the harbour, commercial boats to carry on fishing, including rod and line but we cannot leave the harbour or take any anglers out - not even one! Meanwhile we have to pay for all our mooring fees and licences in full. Apparently ,according to Dorset Council,we are classed the same as pubs, restaurants, amusement arcades, cinemas etc and must wait for further Government guidance. You couldn't really make it up!!!! ... See MoreSee Less
A quick update for everyone on what’s been happening.
Finally the boat was brought back to Lyme Regis last Monday following the fitting of a pair of 200hp V6 Mercury’s. Wow is all I can say!!
Took the opportunity to wet a line on the way home and it was nice to be fishing again - Bass, Cod and Pollack came aboard. Hurrah!!!!
Boris then announced a group of six could meet as from Monday. After various research the consensus is that we can now go to sea with five anglers subject of course to social distancing etc. Even more hurrahs!!!!
Spoke with Dorset Harbours this morning and guess what????? They are not looking to allow any passengers to use the harbour until July at the earliest.
So I spent the day cleaning and doing all those boat jobs that are normally put off to another day. Not so bad in the lovely sunshine but boat loads of pleasure craft with in some cases 8 on board gliding in and out of the harbour all day did make me wonder exactly where the consistency is demonstrated by Dorest Harbours. After all surely a passenger is a passenger wether they pay to come aboard or not. No doubt there will be more twists and turns in this saga - I will keep you posted. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you Dean & Reddyhoff at Portland Marina. Not just looking after Amaretto IV during this lock down but even found time to send me a picture. Those 400 horses are getting restless though! ... See MoreSee Less
