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.

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 www.oceanwarrior3.comGoogle+
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.

There are some cracking big Pollack which run up the English Channel, which makes great wreck fishing.
Ocean Warrior 3 finds that January, February and March are the prime time on the deep water wrecks. We catch these hard fighting big Pollack using the ‘gilling’ technique and using rhubarb and custard or blue sidewinder lures. We find that the Pollack tend to swim high above the wreck (30 to 50) turns above the wreckage.
