    A really great day out for a family group with a mix of life long fishermen and novice beginners. Steve and Chris were very knowledgeable of the river and the species we would be targeting(Whiting and Dab). They both took great care of us all and had plenty of patients especially for the 2 youngsters on board. Everybody in our group caught fish and enjoyed the day. We will definitely go out again in the summer.

    Skippers Reponse: Hello andy it was a pleasure having your gang onboard thanks see you soon ste .

Latest Fishing Reports

  • 29/12/2016 Fishing Report by John Quirk

    29 Dec 2016 by John Quirk

    Ste Dalton and Girl Gray played a blinder on the 29th Dec-16. My step son and his dad aced this Monster which maybe the biggest cod of 2016 for the Mersey, this river is really getting better and better. It was 18lb 3oz and around 1m long.
    The weather was great the bait (provided by Ste was top drawer) and the craic was only topped by the cod-beast.
    Highly recommend a trip with Ste on the Girl Gray, we will be out again soon. Tight lines guys.
