The cabin is accessible to customers and is heated in the winter months. A toilet is available on board too.
In the winter months we fish for Cod, Whiting and conger eels. During the summer species like plaice, bream, bass and small sharks are normally targetted. However, you never qutie know what may come up on the end of your line!
Dress as if for a day out in the countryside at the relavent time of the year. Don't forget your suntan lotion and a hat too though just in case!
Our main vessel has twin 350HP outboard engines on and is one of the if not the fastest fishing charter boat in the UK. That means you spend more time fishing rather than travelling and you also get quite a thrilling ride for a quick blast at top speed too!
Heavy duty sacks are available to take your catch home too. We do however practice sustainable fishing so protected species, undersize or poor eating fish go back in. That said reasonable bags of table fish are encouraged as they make good eating!
If you have more than 12 in your party we can organise multiple boats for you too.
All bookings are subject to our standard terms and conditions available on our website or on request.
