Sussex Sea Fishing Trips



By David Elliott


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.


Sussex Fishing Trips

Sussex fishing trips off the south coast of Newhaven on the Ocean Warrior 3.  We can offer you some great sport on our sussex fishing trips on the deep sea wrecks off the south coast.  Danny from London booked up a sussex fishing trip and had a good day out catching some Pollock.  He caught 8 Pollock during the day and the biggest was 15lb 8oz, while drifting a deep sea wreck 30 miles out of Newhaven.  Everybody on the day enjoyed their sussex fishing trip and all caught a fish to take home.

If you would like to book up a sussex fishing trip out of Newhaven, then give David Elliott on Ocean Warrior 3 a call on 07966 377145.

Sussex fishing trips are ideal days out for corporate events and or stag weekends as rod/reel/tackle and bait can be supplied, just turn up and enjoy the day.  Newhaven Marina also provides free parking, a cafe, tackle shop and a bakers for your convenience.

Sussex and Kent Brill and Turbot Fishing


Tracey Monk had a day out fishing off the south coast of Sussex,  He caught some nice Plaice up to 3lb and a cracking Brill just under 10lb.  It was caught on a mussel bed while drifting baits across.  This is the biggest Brill caught aboard Ocean Warrior 3, so far.

It has been a great year for flatfish this year – here’s hoping that next year is as good or better!
