Ocean Warrior 3 enjoys fishing the wrecks off the south coast.  One wreck in particular is the ‘Mira’, which is a big wreck that lies off of the south coast of Newhaven.  She is a British oil tanker which was built in 1901 and was sunk by a mine on October 11th 1917.  She was laden with fuel and weighed 3,700 ton.  During the summer months Ocean Warrior 3 likes fishing this wreck for big Bass by drifting over the wreck with lures.  When the tide is in full flow, she throws up a large boil and a big scour on the east side of the wreck.  The wreck lies on her starboard side and is 345ft long with a beam of 47ft.  It is also a popular dive site and a good Bass wreck. This is just one of the thousands of wrecks to fish throughout the English Channel, especially in the Newhaven area.
