Diving Plymouth in December

Hi guys, Some may think i’m mad or worse maybe. I went for a boat dive today. I have taken the gear out a few times lately but decided against getting in,instead using my fishing rods and staying dry and slightly warmer. I have had a theory for a few years now on where i could get […]

A few fish reports…   Early August: Devon, Rame head and the James Eagan lane (Wreck in Plymouth Sound) saw myself and Dave Thomasson diving this area with good results, large bass up to 11lbs (big for Devon) lying in the Kelp. Fishing the gullies for big bass is very exiting. I dive down and […]

Trip to New-Zealand

We filled the tanks with some 450 litres of diesel (although it only uses some 30 litres and hour I think) and headed out to the islands for some fishing. Rounding […]
