Safety aboard our vessels

Your fishing vessel

 

                                                                                                            

    

 

 

You will always be given a safety briefing prior to departure and you are asked to bring warm and waterproof clothing. You are also asked not to bring large plastic tackle boxes as they are difficult to secure in a big swell and can become a hazard to the safety of others, please don't bring them as they will not be permitted aboard.

 

  • Safety is paramount in these northern waters and it will always come first.
  • You don't need to bring lead weights as we provide what you will need on board.
  • We also operate a strict no alcohol policy in Shetland
  • Keep your gear to a minimum as you don't need lots of gear.

Tackle and gear you will need

 

17 lb Angler for Tom

 

You want to enjoy good sport, so 30/50 class gear is ideal for most fishing. We can go to 80 lbs when we target big Ling on the wrecks. Braid is a must and 50/80 lbs will cover all your needs.

 

End tackle can vary, but we keep it simple. A sliding boom and 6ft trace of 100 lbs with a large shad or good quality artificial will take Cod, Pollack and Coalfish. Large Hooks are essential minimum  8/0 for Ling and big Cod. You need to fish a good heavy trace as large ling will often take a lure and make short work of 80 lbs mono. We don't fish wire at any time.

 

                                                                                                     

 

Long slim pirks/Jigs are great for Coalfish and Pollack but they need to be at least a 20 oz anything lighter will be no good in 360 ft of water.

 

On board we have good quality rods and matching reels that can be hired at £10. Lures and leads are on board so please don't bring loads of leads, you won’t need them and we have a good selection on board. We can make sure each side of the boat fish heavy or light depending on the drift.

 

Leads are £2.50 and £3.00 you only pay for what you lose and on an average day you should not lose more than 2 or 3. We supply leads which save you carrying it on a long trip and also to ensure that every one is fishing the right lead for the right depth. Light leads under the boat can spoil the angling for everyone else on the boat.

 

 

 

We are often dealing with 8 rods bringing up large fish at the same time ,so keep the tackle simple and safe!! NO Treble Hooks Please!! They are not needed
