22/8/15 The Border Boys try to some west coast fishing, Tope, Bull Huss, Thorn Back and Wrass brought a change of species to these anglers who normally fish for cod on the east coast. With a wee bit of help with the end tackle and the fish started to run as the seas settled down to a calm day.


A view from the Isle

Stayed up at the Isle of Whithorn last week and brought my boat with me which is something I try to do every year and have done for quite sometime. Can I just say that I was really pleased to see you out and about on your boat giving the odd wave as we passed. The Isle of Whithorn has been screaming out for a boat like yours for ages to let others who don’t own boats experience some of the best fishing and amazing coast line and wildlife South Scotland has to offer! You have a brilliant set up (very jealous haha) and everyone I spoke to in the Steam Packet that had been out on trips with you couldn’t speak highly enough of the service you offer!! Good on you, and all the very best luck smile emoticon tight lines


A safe pair of hands


17/8/15 Tope in a safe pair of hands. A cracking run from this Tope had the rod under full compression and the reel screaming as the braid was stripped off the spool. It was a very hard struggle gaining line while retrieving the fish from 30m of water but perseverance is the key, some time later the Tope appeared at the surface, side on. The hook had slipped and caught in the middle of the fish making it a dead weight retrieval. We were rewarded with a big smile and a photo or two, the Tope was quickly returned to the sea and quickly swam off.


11/8/15 Huss of the Day



Local Angler learns that Bull Huss are bar of muscle when fishing off the boat close to the Isle. Only a few bits this trip, a good Tope (35lb+) was brought to the side of boat

David Nicolson Big thanks to Derek for a great day out. We had never fished out of Whithorn before and we were not disappointed. took a wee while to get mackerel, but got about fifty and with some frozen had enough for the day. Got the anchor down and were soon into a steady stream of Huss, some going double figures. I missed a couple of Tope before Adam got the first about 35lb, there were a few about and a couple followed some hooked whiting to the surface, one taking a whiting of the feathers. We ended up with over twenty huss and nine Tope, mostly over thirty pounds, with one pup about ten pounds. Saw loads of Dolphins and a few porpoise, great day on a good boat with a good skipper, we will return.
