IMPORTANT. on booking the whole boat, we are coded for 10 places which has to be covered, it means what it says not expecting to pay for 6 places when your mates let YOU down.Organisers of trips please be aware best to collect all funds before sail date to protect the others in case of let downs, responsibility is the group who have booked not the skippers.

If you have a certain day or date in mind or wish to target a certain species we will make up trip for you will even try add people from our own database so you dont have to book the whole boat. Best to talk about your day first to make sure you pick the right tide for best fishing for what you want to do.

Please bear in mind boat bookings ten places have to be covered financially up to you how many people you have onboard up to ten which will split the cost. This however gives you control over departing and returning times to suit yourself.

Self employed or company corporate days why not ask for written receipt as fully tax deductable.

We do from time to time television work/surveys, sonar towing, item recovery, involved in bird and seal survey if we can help we will. Unfortunately this new vessel is not suitable for diving.

    25 Nov 2018 by jon old

    Well its been extremely testing month or two plenty of whiting too many to be honest at times a pain. We shouldnt moan but we do, still getting the odd spotty dog and thornback thrown in. nothing has gone to plan like a normal season, this year has been a strange one with a abundance of rays this year but hardly any mackerel only a few tope as well, but millions of sandeels and big launce on the feathers. The wind has been relentless i cant remember when it was like a sheet of glass this summer only the odd day without wind. Its been the most trips since we have been chartering that i have had to cancel due to the weather bit testing to say the least. We are still waiting for our cod to arrive reports of plenty further north just the odd one or two for us at the moment hoping these strong easterlies might have dropped the water temperature for us . Despite all the doom and gloom we have been kept busy by the whiting of all sizes without them we would be worried but that could all change with the promise of a bad winter round the corner so we keep being told. Big thanks to everyone for there continued support of High flyer 2 i have stopped putting strings of whiting up as caused stupid comments on facebook stuff that i personally havent got time for and running a full time charter vessel to all the legal requirements from IFCA fish rules to codes of practice etc the effort put in to please everybody from the catering side to paperwork and advertising, phonecalls, boat maintenance, skipper refreshment courses the list goes on these pathetic individuals who know nothing of our local area try to do damage over the internet so i thought best to wait till few codling arrive for our next batch of photos. We are already taking bookings for 2019 please think ahead all those wanting to wreck fish on those precious weak tides , also those self employed take advantage of a corporate day to claim against your tax with full receipt provided, and our night trips will go ahead soon as we get a few more cod. New brochure will be out in the not to distant future , if anybody wants A4 flyer as advertised here please ask will send laminated copy out were very much appreciative of you helping us out. Well until then tight lines everyone . Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Sunday 11th November 2018 very windy weekend lost yesterday but managed a day as wind turned south west giving us a bit of shelter inshore. No cod today for us water temperature has increased again by 2 degrees now standing at 10.5 degrees started catching spotty dogs straight away i knew we wouldnt get any cod, plenty of whiting all day the lads from Ipswich kept a few for the table, one small thornback returned only other species was a small pouting, in all a busy day with the whiting but nothing special. Big thanks to the lads for sticking the weather photo today of Andrej Syrbu team was enjoyable day despite the weather. Cheers Guys. Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Few pics from the weekend of 20/21st Oct 2018 just plenty of whitting all day wherever we went, odd thornback still about with spotty dogs but not so many thank god! All the fish inshore couldnt catch a thing offshore complete waste of fuel and time. I presume everything is eating the shrimp on the beaches. Still patchy herring probably due to the water temperature of 14.5 degrees so no fresh bait at the mo. Bad forcast cold winds and snow for weekend with artic blast unfortunately we need it bring on the cod. Many thanks to everyone from the weekend was most enjoyable.Cheers Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Well its been a hard couple of weeks with extremely windy weather at the weekends typical when the boats full ! Lost last weekend totally home early Sat by 11 am , Sun was a no goer, this Sat 13th was 45 mph southerlys but managed today with 3 different forcasts all wrong ended up with a rather strong northerly . Why cant the weather people with all their technology just get it right here and there! Well basically picture today is of John Currie with a female roker returned, made a nice change from the whiting he was hauling in! We lost a decent fish that we never saw was right at the boat then gone shame really. All day to be honest was whiting of all sizes one or two nice ones plus doggies of all sizes kept us occupied unfortunately no codling for us today but still very warm water temp 15 degrees on finder not really cod water. Praying for some colder weather but not according to our friends at the weather centre were still holding on to our Indian summer so who knows . Will be out this coming Tues will see what we can find. Big thanks to all today very much enjoyed it good load of banter as usual and happy birthday to Dave Lumley appreciate you coming out on your special day. Tight Lines everyone.
