Brighton Marina – Ocean Warrior 3 – Fishing Report

Woody booked up for winter Cod fishing trip.   He managed to catch his personal best Bass of 14lb, which was caught on an inshore reef using Mackerel flapper for bait.

We also had Conger, Undulate Ray, Thornback Ray, plenty of Black Bream and the odd Cod starting to show.  It won’t be long before we start getting the Cod and Whiting, just wait for the weather to get colder.

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.

Sea fishing for Plaice – on Ocean Warrior 3



By David Elliott

Sea fishing for Plaice on Ocean Warrior 3 is a nice relaxing days sea fishing.  Sea Fishing for Plaice has started really early this year as we have been catching some nice Plaice already inshore.

Sea fishing for Plaice is a great option if the wrecks slow up or the weather will not let us get out to deeper waters.  We also catch Dabs and Bass with the chance of catching a Turbot or Brill.  The bait that we use for a sea fishing for Plaice trip would be luggworm tipped with squid and ragworm can also work on the day.  When you are sea fishing for Plaice you could always use coloured beads up the line or a spoon as an attachment.

So if you would like a nice day sea fishing for Plaice on the Ocean Warrior 3 off the south coast of Newhaven, call David Elliott the skipper to book yourself in for a sea fishing for Plaice trip on 07966 377145.

Newhaven Marina Fishing News Report


Don and Andy Matthews crew with a good days Congering on board Newhavens Ocean Warrior 3 in the summer with 60 Conger up to 65lb.  They were all caught using mackerel flappers and cuttlefish baits on a deep offshore wreck off of Newhaven.  Totally awesome days conger fishing – this was the best conger trip this year.

Big Conger caught on the ground off Newhaven


Andrew Barker from Essex caught a Conger Eel which weighed 66lb.  He was fishing aboard Newhavens Ocean Warrior 3 on an inshore mark, he was lucky to get it up as he was using 30lb line with a 15lb trace line and a size 2.0 hook, while using a little bit of squid bait!!  It must have took at least 15 minutes to get the Conger up after a real battle and taking a lot of line in the shallow water and he was using such light tackle.  We weighed the Conger and took a photo and returned it to sea alive.  I think it was a great achievement to get this eel up on such light gear.
