Spring turbot

We are now coming in to our favourite time of year on snapper, the flattie season as the weather starts to warm up our search for this years PB fish begins.

As winter goes into spring and we start to see some more settled weather. The waters around Weymouth and Portland start to clear up after the winter storms. These conditions are ideal for targeting plaice which will be busy starting to bulk up after a winter breeding. Which makes them a great target on into the early summer.

Once the water temperature starts to climb the feed fish start to move into the banks around Weymouth and Portland which intern gets the turbot and brill on the move for the year. The early part of the season often brings the bigger fish to the boat. It’s ideal for the angler looking for a new Pb.
