This is the latest Sussex Sea Fishing Catch Report from Ocean Warrior 3 off the South Coast of Sussex.
We have been catching some nice figured Blonde Rays on the offshore marks.
This is Gavin with a nice double figured ‘Blonde Ray’ caught while on a Sussex Sea Fishing Catch Report trip on Ocean Warrior 3. It was caught on a ‘mackerel flapper’ while fishing offshore.
There are also a few nice Turbot still showing offshore.
The Cod are now starting to show on in the inshore marks while Sussex Sea Fishing Catch Reports on the latest fishing off the South Coast.
We are now coming into the Cod fishing for the next few months and hopefully the next Sussex Sea Fishing Catch Report will bring you additional catches off the South Coast and some nice pictures of some good ‘Cod’ caught.

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.
