better than all the rest................
Bradwell on Sea is situated at the mouth of the
Blackwater Estuary, on the northern edge of the outer Thames Estuary and
Southern North Sea. The boat is moored at Bradwell Marina which is walk
on walk off and non tidal and has secure parking. The marina is 45
minutes from junction 29 of the M25 or an hour and a quarter from
I was one of the pioneers
of uptiding and this method of fishing is very successful in the shallow
waters of this area. The average depth is about 40 feet with a lot
of shallow sandbanks and gulleys. All of the fishing is light
tackle, with light leads on 15 to 20 pound line and either uptiders or
light 12 to 20 pound test boat rods.
Bradwell has a national reputation for
big tope. My boat holds the current record with a fish of 82 ½
lb. We have also had 14 others over
70 lb. Most of the tope at Bradwell are over 40 lb. The
season runs from late May to the end of June. I also held the
British stingray record with a fish of 65½
lb, which has now been beaten by a bigger
fish from Bradwell of 74 lb.
In most months of the year you will have
a variety of fish. I will be on hand to help and advise any
novices on the best way to go about catching all the different species
using different methods, baits and tactics which will apply on the day.
I can customize the day to do whatever you wish. If your priority
is one particular specie of fish or just a general mixed bag just let me
I also do corporate days, which can
include bed and breakfast either before or after your trip and a full
days fishing with everything laid on for your convenience.
Most days are about 8
hours and the average steaming time to the fishing grounds is
approximately one hour leaving you six hours of fishing. Longer
trips can be arranged when booking. Because Bradwell is in a
sheltered estuary very few trips are cancelled. We can usually
find some sheltered water in the Blackwater Estuary or Dengie Flats so
your day can still go ahead even if the wind blows. These inshore
waters can at times be very productive for bass, cod, whiting and
The boat is equipped with a full range of
electronic aids and a huge array of PENN' and Shakesphere's latest tackle which is
available for anybody to use if they wish. All of the bait
necessary for the day is supplied . The boats galley can supply
tea or coffee and heat up your pies, curries, stews etc. The departure
times are usually between 7am and 9am depending on grounds to be fished
on the day.
My new boat the "Daphne Carole" is a state of the art, custom built
Blyth Catamaran built especially for angling parties. Space,
speed, stability and angler comfort are all built into this brand new
