Private boat Captain: Chris Holloway






Well done to all that fished, It was a lovely warm evening with a warm breeze, drifting in poole harbour.
I would like to thank Chris Holloway for the invite to fish with himself and his son Mike Holloway I had a fantastic evening. To all the shore Fishermen you should give it a go and go on the boat that the shore captain Christopher Mackenzie organises,it will be an enjoyable experience, I'm hooked.

Private boat competition
8 July 2018

Blue sky and light winds were an encouraging start for the three boats heading out with six hopeful anglers on board.
Phil Dawson and Adam Holloway on Fish On, Chris and Mike Holloway on Dolphin 1 and Colin and Bobi Francis on Boblin 2.
All headed off in different directions, shoals of mackerel could be seen boiling on the surface, something we haven't seen for years, so plenty of fresh bait.
As normal dogs were in abundance, although a good selection of other species were caught too, Undulates and Thorn backs, Conger, Smooth Hounds, Bream, Plaice, Gurnard and a very nice 21lb 2oz Tope gave Colin a good runaround on light gear.

Colin Francis 1st =10 points
Bobi Francis 2nd=9 points
Mike Holloway 3rd=8 points
Phil Dawson 4th=6.5 points
Chris Holloway 4th=6.5 points
Adam Holloway 6th=5 points

Hi guys 4 boats out the weekend which was great fished in not bad conditions on a cold day,cod were the main target of most boats with only 1 reported being caught 13-8 no whiting caught which was a surprise.
Fishing was poor really as you can see by the points,still that's fishing.
The next comp is dec 6th we could well be fishing again in a cod comp if you want to andys thinking of running another 1 lets hope the weathers kind again.
Cheers Phil


Hi guys not a good day fog to start with wind due to freshen only 2 boats out it was hard work.The fog cleared by 10.30ish shot straight up the swash nik nak was already there they had 4 plaice they pushed of to his mark to try an get a couple of hours there before the wind got up,got nearly there and turn round the wind was already up.
We stuck it out till 1.30 and managed to find some nice plaice 1 of 2-1 then back in the harbour which was shite there must be thousands of checkers in the harbour there everywhere.there are loads in the marina i had 7 in 2 days last week biggest 5lb and lost a big 1,bass.
