    The first two days of The Whitby Angling Festival have gone well on Sea Otter 2.

    The lads have had 2 cracking days fishing and a bag full of fillets to take home on each day.

    John turnballs party on saturday got non stop action out on the 18 mile fishing grounds. The 5 lads who booked the boat for themselves had around 80-90 cod and ling between them. There was nothing massive, with the best fish around the 9lb mark but stacks of them. So a belting day, but it was midway through the afternoon that got everybody on there toes.

    One of the lads was winding a good sized cod up when 20ft under the boat a very large porbeagle suddenly appeared and attacked the lads fish in a swipe it bit the cod completly in half a fish of around 8lb the lads couldnt believe what they were seeing the shark circled the boat for a few minuites before swimming away he must been 8ft long around 400lb mark a very big fish.

    The lads yesterday one of my long standing regualar teams had a great day only 4 lads this time chartering the boat they all had top teens of fish so they were well happy those big ones are evading us at the moment a little slow start on the board but i am sure we will be finding something a big bigger very shortly.

    The Porbeagle bites the cod in half .


    Half a cod .


    He is circleing the boat


    He swims straight under the boat.


    My crewman dave inspects the ravaged cod even he he a bit shocked you can see it was a nice fish or it was a nice fish.


    Still a corking days fishing for the lads and they saw a real shark the lads with just a few of there fish.




    Sundays crew got a taste of some very good shad fishing again the those big doubles are evading us but for how long time will tell the lads had a great day fishing a couple of them are on all week so they are very excited fingers crossed.

    Gary jones with a nice cod on the shad.


    Next drop he nails another.


    John gets a nice cod.


    Big smiles all round a great days fishing for the boys again around 80-100 fish on the boat .

    Cracking pics of the Shark Paul. It must have been worth loosing the cod for a close up like that of the shark

    To be honest that's biggist porgy I have seen in all the years of chartering and to get eye to eye contact right next to the boat was a bit special it was a beast of a fish the sharking lads look like that they are in for a bumper summer .

    Cheers Paul
