We love creating winners on Trot On- especially when they are winning £5000 in the WCSA Summer Festival.
Trot On regular Chris Mangan left it until the last day of the festival to land an amazing 33lb-40z ling, landing him 5 grand and adding another win to the Trot On trophy cabinet.
Well done to Chris and if you fancy gettting in on the festival action with the skipper who has landed more top prizes than any other boat then give us a call as Autumn Festival is just around the corner.
Paul Eddon skippering Trot On has hit the hat-trick to become the first Skipper in W.C.S.A history to win a 3rd consecutive W.C.S.A fishing festival.

Pauls simple words on 2016
“LETS WIN THE LOT”
WHITBY’S NUMBER ONE CHARTER BOAT
Friday saw us having a few hours uptiding, To try a few marks that Dolly fancied. Having a late start at 10:00 Dolly, Dave,Perry and I headed out to the first mark. On arriving we dropped the anchor and baited up with Worm, Squid and cart.
As soon as the baits hit the bottom the fish were attacking the baits. We were catching steady away with the fish even coming up as double shots.
The fish ranged between 1lb-5lb we kept the the bigger ones and the deep hooked ones but returned the majority We fished from about 10:30 to 13:30 and ended up with about 30 or so fish between the 4 of us. The craic was top drawer with poor Perry catching the brunt of it.
