Trot On: Skippered By Paul Eddon

Trot On Whitby Website

A very popular Whitby charter boat- Trot On has an enviable reputation for big fish, great catches and festival wins.
Trot On is a fast Offshore 105 that boasts 430 hp- making it capable of 25 knots- giving you more time fishing and less time steaming.

Trot On is licensed to carry 10 anglers for wreck, reef and uptide fishing from Whitby and replaced skipper Paul Eddon’s old boat  ‘Heather Of Burnham’.
Its not only about speed with Trot On- plenty of deck space is a blessing during those busy festival time charters and Paul Eddon offers sage advice and guidance to anglers throughout the days fishing.

Trot On sails all year round- fishing wrecks and reefs from Spring through to Summer as well as  Winter Uptiding.
In 2013  Paul Pemblington from Mansfield took part in the WCSA Summer Angling Festival on board Trot On and won the £5000 top prize with a 19lb 1oz cod caught on what was one of a number of difficult days,.
Another notable win for Trot On was the 2010 WCSA Spring Festival in which Paul Danby bagged the top spot and £1000 prize with a fine hard fighting pollock of 12lb 4oz (pictured below).

Always a good day afloat- a trip on Trot On sees you given the best chance possible to catch some superb cod, ling and pollock with a few surprise species such as gurnard, coalies, mackerel and the occasional halibut!
In 2011 Peter Strickson fished on Trot On and had the catch that anglers dream about- he hooked and landed a fantastic 56lb 12oz halibut that became port record. Watch the video below to see this amazing catch.

Trot On Offers wreck and reef fishing on 8, 10, 12 and 14 hour trips and Winter uptiding trips that are shorter (due to the days themselves being shorter!)
Special rates are available when parties of 10 or less hire the full boat for a 10 hour trip.
