"Being a fanatical boat angler in the UK and owning my own fishing/charter business in the south of England, I can tell you that the bass fishing around the Isle of Wight and mid English Channel wrecking, is in my opinion, some of the best sea fishing in the country during the summer months.
As for winter fishing, I despise the grey skies, the cold, the rough seas, and of course, as we all know “Dog Fish”.
After fishing various places around the world, I was fortunate enough to visit Watamu in Kenya, which is situated on the East African coast.
This was now 7 years ago, and since then I have returned there many times. The fishing is spectacular, with three species of Marlin (Black, Blue and Stripey); Sail Fish; Broad Bill; Tuna; Wahoo; King Fish and of course many species of Shark.
Bottom fishing includes Snapper; Amber Jack; Grouper; Rock Cod and lots of other weird and wonderful fish.
This year I took a huge step and bought my own fishing/charter boat business in Watamu. With the fishing season starting in September and running through to the end of March which is their summer, this is perfect for getting away from the Dreary British Winter.
Hope to see you out there."
