About The Skipper

colin.jpg Hi, My name is Colin Penny and I am the owner/skipper of Flamer IV, I look forward to welcoming you on board and seeing you having an enjoyable day and of course catching plenty of fish,

Many of my customers become good friends and take part in the inevitable leg pulling that frequently occurs when we get together, if you are of the same mindset you will surely enjoy a trip or two with us on the Flamer IV. It is very important to me that my customers have a really enjoyable day when fishing with me on the Flamer IV, I am a keen sea angler myself and still enjoy sea fishing, But, my main enjoyment is to see my anglers also having fun and catching fish.

Since becoming a full time skipper in 1995, I have won several awards and so have my anglers (listed below) winning one of these always gives me a real buzz.

About The Fishing

general sea fishing imageOver the years charter boat fishing has changed, in the early days the vast majority of bookings were for Whole Boat Charter, However times have changed and we now find that the majority of our bookings are tailored to cater for individual anglers looking for spaces on a boat, since I started catering for individual anglers I have built up a very large and regular following of individual anglers, this means if you are looking for a space or two on a trip, we should be able to fit you in on one of our scheduled sea fishing trips,

On the other hand if you prefer to have the boat at your exclusive disposal, we can also cater for this with our Whole Boat Charter package,


Down to the Sea Fishing then!

Here at Weymouth, we are extremely lucky to enjoy year round sea fishing and we have at our disposal a variety of different marks and areas to fish and these include a multitude of Reefs, Sandbanks and Wrecks that produce plenty of different species dependent on the time of year. 

Although we do all sorts of fishing, we have built up a good reputation in catching flatfish in particular with some very good catches of Turbot, Brill and Plaice, In fact we are often chartered to specifically target flatfish, you will see from our fishy pictures pages and our image gallery the quality of the flatfish that have been caught on the Flamer IV of Weymouth.

Some of the other species that we frequently catch on board the Flamer IV whilst sea fishing on Reefs and Sandbanks include: Rays, Black Bream, Brill, Turbot, Plaice, Conger eels, Tope, Cod, Bull Huss, Smooth hounds, Spurdogs, Gurnards, Whiting and Many Many more!

Whilst Wreck fishing we usually catch the following: Pollack, Cod, Ling, Bass and Conger Eels!

*** BOOK NOW FOR 2021 *** DON'T MISS OUT. I do lots of trips/dates for Individuals on Weekends and Mid Week. Of Course Whole Boat Charter is also available.

BAIT - If you are getting your Rag Worm in Weymouth -  DON'T FORGET TO ORDER THEM.
