    Great boat/Great tackle but most of all great captain .On boarding he delivered a very good safety brief which has sadly been lacking from a lot of boats we have been on.During the trip he kept us all feed and watered with plenty of tea ,coffee and sausage butties. He also gave away a new Rod for the most fish caught on the day. Great day out will be booking again soon thanks from us all

    2018
    We would like to wish all of our friends and customers a very happy New Year. 2018 started well for us catching a 16lbs 2 oz Cod in the Mersey in March we had some good days on the wrecks which produced Cod and pollack to 9lbs we switched our style of fishing to species hunts which 1 day produced 21 species.and put a Daiwa Kensaki rod up as a prize for the most species
    We then started on the Tope we had some fantastic days with up to 24 fish on the boat with the smallest being 28lbs up to 55lbs although some guys lost bigger fish.
    See are pics o n catch photo's not bad hey up to 21 species in a day Tope up to 55lbs Cod up to 16lbs 2oz on a boat that's in liverpool 52 weeks of the year. Happy New year Tight lines Gary and the Team

    Discovery so far this winter
    The Winter Fishing started in October the Mersey was full of Thornback Rays we had plenty of double figure Thornback Rays
    Then the Whiting arrived on Mass which was a blessing at first but as the cod came in the whiting destroyed good baits we still had some great days between 25 and 30 cod being are best day we had to wait until November for Notingham Specimen fishing club to come out with us to get our first double figure Cod with Andy lempick landing a 10lbs12oz Cod. We managed a 6lbs plus Cod the following day and then we had a Daiwa day where we take some Daiwa tackle dealers out usually with a bit of a pool Nick Daiwas Rep took this with a5lbs plus Cod .fishing has had a bit of a lull this week with the huge amount of freshwater deposited into the river but we still had 15 cod yesterday dates available for Jan 2019 3,4,14,17,18th full boat 27th of Jan Sunday full boat
    Gary ,Lynne and the team would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New year Tight lines
