Turbot fishing - Ocean Warrior 3
Picture Archive
By David Elliott

Turbot fishing over the sand banks on the drift can be great fun on Newhaven’s Ocean Warrior 3. We can offer you some exciting Turbot fishing trips off the South Coast.

Really Wrecked SAC had a cracking day Turbot fishing this week. They caught 42 Turbot up to 21lb 4oz and also had 12 Brill up to 7lb. The biggest Turbot of 21lb 4oz went to Phil Brookes. These fish are especially nice to eat but can be hard to find, this was an outstanding day Turbot fishing for the Really Wrecked club.

When we are Turbot fishing, we drift over some nice deep water sand banks and drag a side of a mackerel as bait, or you can also use sand eels for these huge flatfish. When you are Turbot fishing and you catch one over 10lb it really is a great specimen of a fish.

The Turbot is a diamond shaped fish and its upper surface tends to a darker colour when it is found on the harder ground, although when it is found on the sandy gravel it tends to be a sandy yellow colour.

While Turbot fishing, it is likely that you may catch some nice Brill. These fish run with the Turbot and are also very nice to eat

For Turbot fishing, we use 20 to 30lb rods and line, with an 8.0 lead and a size 4.0 to 6.0 hooks and the trace you would be using would be 5ft long. You would also want to ensure that the clutch is set correctly. Most sea anglers, while Turbot fishing, are using braided line so that they can feel the first bite better as it is more sensitive.

If you fancy a day out Turbot fishing out of Newhaven, give Dave a call to book up your Turbot fishing trip as we still have some spaces available.
