  • 5-star Dennis Barker (03/12/2017)

    Had a great day out with Paul, didn't get the rays that we were expecting, but caught plenty of whiting and doggies. Better to catch something than nothing. You cant have a brilliant days fishing everytime you go out, but Paul did put us on the fish. Cant wait to organise my next trip with him in the new year.

    Skippers Reponse: THanks will always try our best to catch see you soon
