The winds are starting to kick up tonight, blowing 56mph at the Greenwich (southerly). The worst direction for Ocean Warrior 3 as it is blowing straight down the entrance.
The wave monitor outside the arm is already reaching 5.3m – its a big sea. Here we go again – the winter gales have arrived, here’s hoping it dies down for the weekend!!!
Newhavens Ocean Warrior 3 biggest Conger of 103lb (and Newhavens biggest eel) was caught by Andy Matthews back in August 2003.
It was caught on an offshore wreck fishing mark. Andy caught this massive Conger on a 30lb class rod using 30lb braided line. It was weighed and photographed and the best bit of this is that Andy put the Conger back alive. Ocean Warrior has had great pleasure in returning all our congers back to sea alive to preserve the stocks and to give more great fishing to other anglers. I wonder how big this eel is now…..Google+
