Flattie Fishing Aboard Flamer IV of Weymouth, Dorset

Tuesday saw Dan, Dave and I hop aboard Flamer IV of Weymouth, Dorset. Skipper, Colin Penny runs trips targeting all species of sea fish but I think it's fair to say that the majority of his customers book up to fish for flatfish species. Colin has built up an enviable reputation for locating and catching large plaice, turbot and brill and it was these three species that were our main targets on this occasion. All on board enjoyed a great day with both Dave and I catching the target hat trick of flatfish, Dan caught plaice, along with some nice black bream and the rest of the boat added gurnard, mackerel and pouting to the list of species caught. Similar bait and tackle was used by all with ragworm, squid and prawn fished on rigs made up of coloured beads and flashing spoons and tied to 20lb line. To book a trip with Colin aboard Flamer IV visit

A plaice of nearly 3lb for me
