    I've been out on the Boy Matthew x3 times now, twice with a group of mates and x1 with folks I don't know... just turned up on the day. Peter certainly looks after you from the minute ur on his boat. Can't do enough for you, whether preparing bait or sorting a rig out for you. He always seems to be there to help. Other chartered trips that I have been on in Northern and southern Ireland the skipper hardly says boo to you but Peter is plenty of crack. Fishing of Portstewart on all occasions I've been on has been quite successful. The latest trip there saw a 10lb pollack and various 8 and 9 pound Lingfield. Basically Peter knows his stuff and it's a great experience. Weather it's a trip out in the bay for mackerel or out a few mile for bigger fish, couldn't recommend it enough!

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Andrew, hope to see u back, soon.

    We had a brilliant trip on the Boy Matthew. Peter was an excellent skipper, being endlessly patient with my sons, filleting the fish we caught, and even providing hot drinks. My sons were really pleased to have the chance to catch dog fish and ling, as well as mackerel.

    Skippers Reponse: Many thanks, Gill. Delighted you had a memorable day and the boys enjoyed the fishing. Hopefully see u again.
