Charter Trips

From a couple of years after SCSSA was formed in 1982 members have organised fishing trips to various UK ports.

The North East was a regular venue for many years, mainly Whitby, hence the Whitby Trophy for the heaviest fish caught on a charter boat from any UK port and an odd trip to Hartlepool. More recent trips have all been to Devon fishing out of the ports of Noss Mayo, Plymouth and Dartmouth.

The trips have resulted in a number of memorable fish, such as a Conger weighing 721/2 lbs caught by Ian Clarke and a Blue Shark estimated over 80 lbs caught by Steve Hicks.

More recently, some Members have been back to the Whitby areas of the North Sea, and have had a couple of good days with some nice cod caught. The more adventurous of the “Lads” have tried the Fjords and Norway sides of the North Sea and had some “Cracking” Fish with cod to 18lb off the shore!

Presently plans are afoot for a return to Ireland later this year.
