We are proud to introduce to you and sponsor the ‘Ebony May’, a charter boat fishing out of Saundersfoot, South West Wales. If you have ever considered hiring a charter boat in Saundersfoot or West Wales then we highly recommend you take a look at the ‘Ebony May’.
The Ebony May offers a quality and comfortable fishing experience. The boat is a 2 year old 10 metre cougar catamaran which also has twin Yamaha 300hp outboards. This gives a cruising speed of 25 knots and a top speed of 40 knots, because of this you will get out to the fishing grounds quickly, which will allow you more fishing time. It was purpose built and designed with the anglers comfort, space and safety in mind, hence the boat features on board toilet, undercover seating and a live bait tank.
The boat is suitable for wheelchair use and has access doors on both sides. In addition, you will find there to be ample fishing space which includes down both sides of the cabin. The vessel has the most up to date electronics package, it is also fully licensed and coded for 12 anglers for up to 60 miles off shore.
The Ebony May offers all the comforts you would need to have a pleasurable and enjoyable fishing trip. Due to its powerful outboard engines, it can take you to the fishing hotspots further out from the Saundersfoot Harbour, and get you there quickly without waiting too long.
See the last section for the Ebony Mays Specifications and pictures taken on the boat.
ABOUT THE SKIPPER:
I have fished these waters for the past 30 years and been a charter skipper for the past 17 years. I am a serious fisherman myself, and pride myself on never having a blank trip, I specialise in tope fishing May/June/July. Furthermore we also fish for Pollock on Bristol channel wrecks , and Lundy. We also fish for blue shark, and porbeagle shark off Lundy and celtic deeps from June onwards. In shore fishing is also excellent, targeting species such as Bream, Wrass, Pollock, Bass, Skate, and a number of other species. From July onwards we also fish for Bass, using live sandeel which is great sport.
2018 Summary Report by Stuart Denman
‘What an awesome season we had in 2018. The good weather enabled us to fish well out into the Bristol channel. In May, we began targeting mid channel wrecks and the Lundy area. Catching good quantities of Pollock, Cod, Spurdog, and Tope. average Pollack 5 to 8 lb. Also at the end of May, June, July, Tope arrived in good quantities inshore. Largest Tope caught this year 68lbs, caught on a shallow in shore mark.,fresh mackerel providing the bait, we had several trips with .over thirty tope landed. We were privileged to have Dave Lewis from Sea Angler magazine out with us in June, writing an article on the excellent Tope fishing in our area. On the day we landed several Tope up to 45lbs. June, July, August, September, we caught good quantities of Bream, Wrasse (Ballan and Cuckoo), Skates and Rays, Turbot, Bass, Smoothhound, Bullhuss, Pollock, Coalfish, Garfish, and several other species. This shows the diversity of fishing in our area. Looking forward to 2019. Now taking bookings for wreck/Lundy trips in May/June. Also, Tope fishing begins May-July. I am convinced on the quantity and size of the Tope that we caught in 2018, that there is a new welsh record Tope waiting to be caught in our area. With the lifting of the Bass ban allowing us to catch Bass, we will also be targeting Bass using live sandeels from June until October, drifting inshore reefs. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank customers old and new. Really excited for 2019.
