Thames Estuary Report June 2021


Thames Estuary report by Lee Bollingbroke

At last we are fully open and chartering as usual on Sophielea and now allowed to fill the boat as usual and the best bit  the fishing is great with large hounds to fifteen pounds plenty of bass mostly small to mediums and lots of rays.The weather is helping with sunshine and calm seas and anglers are gagging to get afloat the telephone does not seem to stop ringing especially when after a hard days netting big fish at sea all day  I sit down exhausted to have dinner.After the lock down we started our charters again but unfortunately we had engine trouble with a fuel injection pump this is typical after doing sweet nothing for weeks  however waiting for this to be servised we were able to completly finish all the pending jobs to be done and can carry on now hopefully trouble free if thats possible on a boat.We are confident that fishing will be good now until the Autumn and we will be turning our attention to our tope and hound fishing may be breaking our record tope of seventy two pounds a hard ask I think.
