‘Fins Up’ is located at newly built Osprey Marina, Portland. The marina benefits from free parking, restaurant/bar and toilet and shower facilities. (The skipper will provide you with a key code to enter the pontoon and toilet/shower facilities). Trollies are available to help transport your rods and bags.


Rough Ground, Inshore Reef and Bank

If you’re looking for a more relaxed day  but still producing an abundance of species and sizeable fish then this is the trip for you. Fishing with bait, at the beginning of spring we start fishing the famous Shambles Bank targeting Turbot and Brill. Black bream are also coming in to shore at the springtime but they really start arriving in big numbers in early August through to October. You will also find congers, topes and rays amongst the reefs and banks.


Inshore Wreck/Reef Fishing

During the summer months inshore fishing around Weymouth and especially Lyme Bay  can produce a variety of species and very sizeable fish. Using light tackle and lures for inshore fishing  is great fun and can prove very sporting even for the most experienced angler. On these trips we will be targeting Pollack, Bass, Black Bream, Conger Eels and Cod

Wrecking Trips

This can be challenging, hard work but very rewarding. You will travel out to some of the south coast’s wrecks where you will be fishing in deep waters with no sight of land. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced angler we will be on hand to show you what to do or simply just to offer guidance. We will be targeting species such as Cod, Ling, Pollack, Bass and Conger Eels depending on the time of year. These trips can be booked most of the year   

Sharking Trips


The waters around Portland in the last few years has become home to large amounts of Porbeagle sharks during the warmer months. We have caught sharks frequently enough to now offer specialist trips for these beasts.

We have had sharks in 2018 up to an estimated 130lb and know there are bigger out there! We can supply all the tackle required on these trips if you need it and chum is supplied as standard.

With a maximum of 5 anglers per trip you have a great chance of hooking and landing your own monster from the deep.
