Matty got the trip off to a good start with this 205 for Cumbrian John Smith. John has has plenty of tope trips with us but this is his first skate. It’s all down hill down John.

I had another day running in my engine and start chartering tomorrow.

Record breaking Smoothound for Guy. Onyer Marks Charter Hire.

Above, Guy’s 15lb 4oz Smoothound would have beaten the Scottish record by 5 pounds.

Smoothound caught with Onyer Marks Charters.

Above, another good Smoothound caught by…er…’Paul’s Son’ (it says here….) recently.

 

Thornback Ray

Thornback Ray caught by Carl with Onyer Marks Charter Hire.

Carl caught this neat Thornback Ray whilst angling with his son on one of our charters. Check out the other species of Ray we have caught over the years too, our galleries have some great images and catches.

Plaice

Sheila with a decent Plaice, caught with Onyer Marks Charter Hire, Scotland.

Sheila caught this fine Plaice a while back. A staple part of the diet once upon a time, Plaice and chips was a popular dish (probably still is…). Rather than cook this one thought, we returned it back into the sea.
