Hi Andrew,
The two skippers I have been out with from Plymouth are Tiburon , JIM O'DONNELL (01752 518811 , 07855 040015) he is very good but usually booked up a fare way in advance, also Sea Angler , Malc Jones (01752 316289, 07977 097690).
I Have been out with him a couple of times and have done well, but I haven't tried lure fishing but have caught plenty of Pollock on deep spun eels from his boat.
Let me know how you get on!.

I'd be interested Andrew subject to the normal things - domestics, dosh etc. The one thought that springs to mind is that most of the boats/skips that John has named above are traditional sea angling charters (I think). If a 'specialist' lure angling trip was required would someone with more experience of lure angling be required or is it simply enough to find someone that can put us on the fish, no matter how we intend on catching them. I don't know enough about boat lure fishing to know...........

Just a thought, it might be worth checking with Oz (Austin Goldsmith) on this as he does giudeing for swffing in the porthleven area. He may have contacts or sort something himself?
I know less than nothing on boat fishing let alone lure fishing from boats kayaks yes boats nope. Hopefully he might pick this thread up sooner or later. :wink:

I know JIM O'DONNELL would be a good choice as he regularly does bass trip through the summer but you would have to book the whole boat. One of Henry's fishing shows was filmed on his boat so when he gets back he may be able to add more.
I have done a lot of boat lure fishing around Plymouth over the last few years during the summer with my own boat launching from the free slipway near the mayflower marina, but this year has been more from around Port Gaverne on the north coast.
This time of year most full time boats are in search of cod and Pollock (great fun on small soft-baits & jigs with light tackle.

You want a small boat or rib really, lots of good shallow marks in Plymouth sound for Bass and other fishies on lure. Most of those charters are a bit too big really.

Ian Holman of the 'Bounty' would be worth considering. I'm not sure how up with lure fishing he is, but he knows his bass by all accounts and his boat is smaller and would be much better suited. If you guys are serious, I would give him a call if I were you.

Hi Andrew,

Did you get any further along with the information gathering on this idea?

It sounds exactly what I'm looking to do too. Mine's a birthday bash, and the idea is to hire a small(ish) charter boat to fish over shallower marks and concentrate on lure fishing with hard plastics or maybe some soft plastics.

Not a specimen hunt, so a day spent catching Mackerel on Mepps spinners or ultralight lures would be great, Or maybe targetting School Bass on light spinning gear.

The idea really is just to have a fun day's lure fishing that results in fish being caught (and released), as children we used to fish for freshwater Black Bass with Mepps spinners so this is what I'm trying to recreate.

And getting to play with lots of different shiny lures too........ (I usually fish in less than 3' of tackle hungry water, so the opportunity to use deep diving crankbaits for once, appeals)

Any suggestions?

cheers Nick
