Silver Halo is a Cheetah Marine catamaran and has a nice shallow draft. With twin 115 hp Honda outboards we can get offshore really quickly.
She is comfortable cruising at around 20 knots, this only takes 2 hours to cover 40 miles. This advantage allows us to access 100’s of wrecks and move quickly between them when looking for fish.
Fully kitted out with the latest Simrad electronics, we use the 3D structure scan to find the fish holding positions and try to keep our fishing nice and tight to them.
We also have the benefit of the latest 4G radar, this can be fine tuned to seek out birds feeding on bait balls. You never know what’s chasing the bait fish under the water…..it could be dolphins, bass or even tuna?!
We mostly drift fish the wrecks with lures and jigs. For the best sport we like to use the lightest tackle possible. On the smaller tides we enjoy slow pitch jigging. Jig weights range from about 100g for shallower water and up to 250g for deeper water and more tide.
Other preferred methods are the use of lead headed soft plastics like Fiiish BM, Crazee Sandeel and Namix Cobras. When offshore these range from 60g to 200g. When required, we do also use traditional flying collar rigs.
Our recommendations for these offshore trips are: a maximum of 4 anglers, minimum of 8 hours and 45 to 100 miles covered.
Trips are usually booked in advance but we do often need individuals to make up groups, please see the pricing page and Options C, D and E.
