THE FISHING

Renowned worldwide for it's quality sea fishing heritage, Scarborough on the beautiful Yorkshire coast is the ideal port to charter a boat for an angling trip.
Luckily for Scarborough there is many places to fish, most of these places we fish are Natural scars of rock, kelp beads, And generally really rough ground ideal for Cod and Pollock Fishing. there are many marks we fish some are only a few minutes away from the harbour and others can span up to filey brigg or ravenscar again two very good Cod and Pollock grounds.

Also close to Scarborough are many old ship wrecks, mainly ships that were sunk in the war, and some old trawlers. these wrecks can produce good Cod, Ling, Pollock, and Many other fish.

About the Skipper:

Nick is a keen match angler fishing from the boat and the shore. Over many years he has fished in the Scarborough Boat Angling Club, the Scarborough Angling Festival and the Scalby Mills Angling Club and in the last few years he has gathered many trophies and prizes. As well as fishing Nick also enjoys gathering and digging his own bait to ensure he has the best possible bait.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, Nick with his lifelong knowledge of the area will take you to the best spots for a successful day’s fishing.

First and foremost Nick is an angler and admits to having a passion for bait fishing from the shore and the boat for Cod. During the summer Nick feels there is not any type of better fishing than catching Pollock on light tackle using lures. Obviously cod is the main target species of all the charter boats and we have had some excellent fish with both quality and quantity coming aboard

    The service provided by Nick and his mate was absolutely first class.Nothing was too much trouble,everything was well explained.
    The Skylark was an absolute pleasure to be aboard,we will be back.

    Skippers Reponse: Many thanks for your glowing review Graham

  • 5-star Dave K (03/08/2018)

    For anyone who has not yet fished on Skylark do your self a favour and book a trip the skipper Nick never gives less than 100 % effort and is a pleasure to be at sea with there's more than a few well known boats/skippers that could do with taking a leaf out of Nicks book when it comes to customer care less bullshit and more effort.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks for a great review.

    Hope to see you again soon
