South East Turbot Fishing



By David Elliott

Ocean Warrior 3 offers some great South East Turbot Fishing.  We fish on the deep water sand banks for Brill and Turbot.  You can have a relaxing days fishing on the drift.

So far this year we have had some nice Turbot showing already.  This is Gary from Brighton of whom had a good day South Coast Turbot fishing with his mates and they caught some nice fish.  The bait we use while fishing for Turbot is fresh Mackerel.  We catch the Mackerel during our South East Turbot fishing trip when we are travelling out.  Sand eels also work well at this time of year.

While we are South Coast Turbot fishing, we drift for quite a long way on the sandy ledges, using an 8oz lead, a sliding boom and we use a 5.0 hook with a fillet of Mackerel.

We have also been catching some Cod and Pollock in the good numbers and the Cod have been reasonable sizes on the wrecks.  There have also been some good sized Black Bream up to 3lb 6oz on the small hooks while anchored to the wrecks.  There have also been plenty of Congers using the flapper baits.

If you fancy a days fishing for Turbot on Ocean Warrior 3 out of the port of Newhaven Marina on the South Coast, this is a good time for this.  Why not check out our website to check out the calendar with available dates.

We will soon be on the winter Cod fishing throughout October so if you fancy a day out fishing for the Cod, check out the dates available.

Sea fishing off Shoreham for Cod on the wrecks aboard Ocean Warrior 3.  This month has produced some good catches while sea fishing off Shoreham.  Lots of Cod have shown up on the deep water wrecks.  Stuart’s crew had a good trip sea fishing off Shoreham on a deep water wreck.


The biggest Cod of the day was 16lb and was caught on a pirk lure.  They caught a lot of Cod throughout the day while sea fishing off Shoreham.  Not bad, as there were only 3 of them on the boat, plenty of Cod to go round.  The sidewinder lures seem to be the best lures at the moment.

South Coast Latest Report – Ocean Warrior 3



By David Elliott

South Coast fishing latest report from Ocean Warrior 3.

It has been a while since our last report, but we have had the boat out of the water for some maintenance works and ready to start fishing for 2015.

We can offer you a great day either inshore or offshore fishing all year round.  One of Ocean Warrior 3’s regulars went out on a south coast fishing trip, they were the Really Wrecked SAC crew.  They had some nice sized Pollock to 19lb 6oz, which is the new club record and it was caught by Steve Newham.

This is a good time of year to go out south coast fishing – on Ocean Warrior 3.  The wreck fishing is just starting to happen.  This is the first run of big Pollock, then; the Cod will be turning up next.  This wreck fishing takes place well offshore on the deep water wrecks off the south coast.  The wrecks we fish on are ‘big coasters’ and ‘small coasters’, where the fish congregate around.  Especially the unchartered wrecks which no-one has fished on them yet.

Newhaven is a small port, which offers free parking within the marina.  It also has a tackle shop for your bait and lures.  It also has a convenience shop and a cafe for breakfast before your trip.  We are only approximately 90 minutes from London and also has a train station if you do not drive.

We cater for the most experienced anglers and also the inexperienced, which are new to the sport – come on try it out and have a great day on a Newhaven sea fishing trip.

Sussex Sea Fishing Trips



By David Elliott


Ocean Warrior 3 specialises in Sussex sea fishing trips off the south coast.  During some of our Sussex sea fishing trips, we enjoy targeting the Conger eels on the wrecks off Newhaven. Ocean Warrior 3 is based in Newhaven Marina on the South Coast.

Don and Andy Matthews had booked up 2 Sussex sea fishing trips.  They wanted to fish for Conger on these trips, so we concentrated on the offshore wrecks. The biggest Conger eel over the 2 days was caught by Andy and weighed in at 83lb 6oz. This is Ocean Warrior 3’s biggest eel this year, so far… (although, it is not Andy’s biggest, as he had 103lb Conger eel on our previous boat Ocean Warrior 2 in 2003!)


During their Sussex sea fishing trip, Mick Cox had the next biggest Conger eel of 65lb, which is the biggest Conger eel Mick has ever caught. The Conger eels were caught using Mackerel flappers and cuttlefish baits, using a 300lb monotrace and 8/0 hooks.


Andy and Don had a couple of nice eels up at the same time on one of the days during their Sussex sea fishing trips and both eels were over 50lb. During their 2 days of Sussex sea fishing trips, they caught 100 eels up to 83lb. They had a great couple of days and it was great sport fishing. All Congers were returned alive so that other Conger anglers can also have some good sport during their own Sussex sea fishing trips and it helps to promote the conservation of the Conger eels in the waters off the South Coast. The Conger eels can only get bigger by putting them back and it is always better for the future of Conger eel fishing.


We also caught some nice Black Bream to 4lb and also a few Cod on the Cuttlefish along with a good sized Ling on a Mackerel flapper.

We are now taking bookings for 2015, so if you are looking to book up a Sussex sea fishing trip, call David Elliott on 07966 377145 to make sure you get the perfect tide to fish for these Conger eels.

Ocean Warrior 3 biggest Coalfish



By David Elliott

This year’s fishing has had a very slow start.  However, now that the weather has calmed down a bit and spring is around the corner we have managed to get out to the deep water wrecks.

There are some good sized Pollock showing on the offshore wrecks, but, Tabish had this 16lb Coalfish!  It was a great catch for Tabish, and it was caught using a sidewinder lure and it gave him a good fight on light tackle.  This is Ocean Warrior 3′s biggest ever Coalfish, so Tabish has now got the boat record!

We are looking forward to getting back out to those deep water wrecks for some more great fishing.  If you fancy coming out on one of our trips, check out our calendar for available dates or give David Elliott a call on 07966 377145 or visit our main website at
