    Dene is the nicest bloke and skipper I've meet his boat is clean and tip top he rang me day before to say not a lot is coming up but I still went (fishing is fishing) had loads off doggies no cod a good day and a honest bloke .Kris

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Kris, very true - fishing is fishing, but I will always let parties know in advance when it is slow. Look forward to seeing you again. Hopefully the winds this week will stir it up a bit.

    Hopefully some good fishing will start in March. It has been a lousy winter cod-wise!

    First trip out on Gemini II from Queenborough, Isle of Sheppey produced a decent 9lb Bass, for one of our regular "ex-Dover" parties. A few smaller bass, plus smoothhounds, dabs, whiting and some mackerel.

    3 Jun 2016 by Michael Nicholas

    Went out with Dean again today, the 3rd June 2016. Very overcast and a bit choppy and not looking too promising. As usual Dean pulled it out of the bag and managed to get us on the fish, moving marks 7 or 8 times to search them out. We had turbot, bass, whiting, Pollock, pouting, plaice, dab, gurnard, mackerel, dogfish and a bunch of Sandeels. We even had a visit from UK Border force to make sure we weren't trying to better the country illegally. Nothing is too much trouble for this skipper, his boat is immaculate and he keeps the tea and coffee coming all day. Highly recommended
