South Coast Winter Cod Fishing on board Ocean Warrior 3, based in Newhaven Marina, East Sussex.

We have been catching some nice sized Winter Cod on our South Coast Winter Cod Fishing trips lately with Cod up to 6-7lb.  There are also some bigger Cod starting to show.  Squid bait has proved to be quite productive lately for the Cod.  However, we have also seen some good ones showing using the ‘Mackerel heads and fillets’, which is most unusual while South Coast Winter Cod Fishing on the ground.

South Coast Winter Cod Fishing on Ocean Warrior 3, only costs £55 per person plus any rod/reel hire if required for a day out fishing.

There have also been some nice sized Whiting being caught.  The bigger Cod though seem to be attracted to the cuttlefish bait, which are now beginning to show on the inshore marks.

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.

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

Bass Fishing South Coast



By David Elliott

Bass fishing South Coast out of the port of Newhaven on the Ocean Warrior3.  We have seen some nice Bass fishing over the last few weeks.

Bob Nye booked up a Bass fishing South Coast trip and caught his personal best Bass of 10lb.  He caught it at anchor on a squid head bait on an inshore ground mark.  Bob had a terrific battle when it hit the surface as it had 3 big runs and had no chance of getting it in the net yet.  However, this big Bass started to get tired and then we managed to net it for Bob.

Throughout the summer months Bass fishing South Coast off Newhaven can be very rewarding for the Bass angler on the inshore marks.  Although, the wrecks can also hold some big sized Bass as well, especially using the live baits on the drift.  Bass fishing South Coast can be great while drifting around the Beachy Head area.  The area around the over falls on the big tides can produce some great Bass fishing while drifting with lures and pirks.  Bass fishing South Coast trips can be at its best after a big south-west blow.

So if you are looking to get some great fishing in, book up a Bass fishing South Coast trip with David Elliott on the Ocean Warrior 3, based in Newhaven Marina and he can arrange a great day out Bass fishing.

Newhaven Charter Fishing News Report – on Ocean Warrior 3



By David Elliott

Newhaven charter fishing news report – on Ocean Warrior 3.  We have had some Cod and Pollock on the deep sea wrecks off of Newhaven.  Ben from Really Wrecked SAC chartered Ocean Warrior 3 for a day out wreck fishing.  They managed to catch 29 Cod and Pollock on the day while wreck fishing.  It was a long distance out to the wreck, 30 miles out of Newhaven Marina but they make a great addition to this Newhaven charter fishing news report.

Some additional news to add to this Newhaven charter fishing news report, which is, that there are also some big Plaice coming up already on the inshore muscle beds on the drift and also at anchor.  This is a great option if we are unable to get out to the deep sea wrecks due to the weather on the day.  This can be a nice fight using light tackle.

Also making a contribution to this Newhaven charter fishing news report is Albert’s crew.  They had around 30 Plaice inshore, mostly on lugworm tipped with squid baits.

Look out for more information on our Newhaven charter fishing news report – on Ocean Warrior 3, as we are starting Conger fishing this week.  So keep an eye on my website and see how we get on trying to catch the big boys!

Newhaven Marina Port Record Conger


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…..
