    Another superb day out on Gloria bII. Terry is an excellent skipper and always provides an excellent experience. Defo the only boat I would book again. Terry put us straight on the fish and we had plenty on our lines even the Gurnards were showing there ugly faces!!!! Give the skipper a crack he won't disappoint

  • 5-star Andy Bryant (20/03/2016)

    Great day! Terry and Lee were excellent. On hand for advice when you needed them but were laid back and happy for the lads to crack on.It was tough fishing but Terry got us onto the fish and everyone came home with their supper plus extras in the end. Definitely be booking again.

    Myself and 7 other chartered Gloria B11, we had a great time, the skipper ( terry ) put us on the fish straight away, between us we had about 24 codling to 5lb, all keepers, we also had about 15-20 big whiting,we found terry and his son dean very friendly and helpful , we would very much recondmend the gloria B11,in fact we have already made another booking, Once again thanks Terry and Dean for a great day out, we are looking forward to the next trip.

  • 5-star Paul Rowlen (07/11/2010)

    What a great days fishing we had I ended up walking away with a bag of cod and whiting having put several back along with the usual doggies, having tried other skippers I find Terry to be the most laid back but at the same time ultra proffesional, the bait from Brian Deans was as good and fresh as ever which was proven in the boats catch. All of this leads to a a great day so much so that my son had his fishing birthday party on the boat.All I have to do now is work out when I can get out again.
