The first day of the New Year on Golden Cap

These two great photos were taken from the top of Golden Cap north west towards Lyme Regis on New Year’s Day 2013. At last there was a break in the weather and millions of people in Britain headed for the great outdoors.

From Golden Cap IGolden Cap is the highest point on the south coast after Beachy Head and stands 619 feet above sea level. The area in the photos shows where we do much of our one hour mackerel fishing trips. So on a perfect day such as this the views of the Jurassic Coast are spectacular. When the sea is calm and the sun is shining as they sit back and take in the view many of our passengers remark on what a wonderful place this is.

From Golden Cap IIAfter all this rain these cliffs are falling all the time and fossils are being exposed that have not seen the light of day for tens of millions of years. However, the base of the cliffs are dangerous and potential fossil hunters need to be warned to stay clear and stick to the beach in case of rock falls.

Our Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trips start again at Easter as do our Lyme Regis mackerel fishing trips so we look forward to welcoming you on board. Roll on the summer and the sunshine!
