The course starts as we find our fishing grounds and full instruction will be given from a novice basis including instruction on how to rig the fishing rod & real plus bait preparation as we will fish for a multitude of possible catches. Full instruction is available throughout. You will learn the finer points of sea fishing, greatly increasing your chances of a bountiful catch, discover elements that influence the fishing conditions, (such as the weather) information on tides and the fishing marks we are over such as sandy beds, reefs and wrecks.
Just before lunchtime (hopefully with the full box of fish) we will make our way back to the shelter of Portland harbour, recent location of the Olympics. Here the catch will be sorted and you will have chance to practice preparing the fish which will then be cooked on board the boat.
