About the Skipper:

I have been a skipper for over 40 years on various types of boat and worked angling boats from rhos on sea since the harbour was made over 25 years ago.

Jack is now the main skipper of the incentive. He started off with me as a crew lad at a very young age, keeping the boat clean, helping the anglers out on deck and most importantly keeping the kettle on the go! He is now a qualified skipper and still as keen to help out the anglers as ever.

    Had a great days fishing with my son yesterday. This was our second trip on Incentive, Jack is a great skipper and kept us moving throughout the trip to find the fish. He really looked after us, giving us advice, untangling knots, providing the tea and coffee and a decent sausage sandwich. Even a bit of rain couldn't dampen it. All good fun and my son caught the biggest fish on the day 13lb Bull Huss - might not be the biggest fish ever caught but it definitely put a smile on his face. We will be back.

    After unforeseen circumstances our original charter out of Liverpool was cancelled. So rang jack up on the off chance to see if a he had any spaces! To my surprise he did and we headed to the boat around 9am having picked up bait from the table shop handily located a short. Walk from the charter pick up point. Jack had us moving all day to keep us on fish, even though we were limited to inshore fishing due to the stronger than forecast winds we all caught fish and had a great day afloat! Species caught included mackerel, whiting, dabs, pouting, dog fish and huss. All in all a great day and great skipper will deffinately regiment and will be booking again for summer next year! Thanks again, Josh

  • 08/2018 Fishing Report by Jack Thomas

    Aug 2018 by Jack Thomas

    Not posted in a while. As like with all skippers with this weather we've been busy getting out. Fishing is changing trip to trip, and that's IN A DAY, not a 'you should of been here yesterday' story. One trip good fishing, the afternoon a little quiet. Or vice versa. But we try out best as always.
    This last few days has seen plenty of mackerel which is good as they were late to show. Alot of which a good size.
    Around 20+ species landed over the last few weeks. Which adds to the variety.
    A few individual spaces left this month so give me a call if you want to get out.

    Plenty of whiting, dabs, codling, dogs, huss up to 15lb. Some nice gurnards showing. Mackerel are very hit and miss at the moment. Once this algi clears it should be back to normal. A John dory was landed today . A bit of a rare catch for these parts but we do get the odd ones.
    Pictured is a tub gurnard.

    First day that we have hit a meaningful amount of mackerel this season. With the lads getting plenty for bait, enough for home then leaving a shoal to move on to other fishing. A sign that they're here for the summer now?
    Abit of moving around but in the end quite the huss fest with 6 to the boat at any one point, keeping me busy with the net.
    Good fishing found close Inshore maximising fishing time.

    Stacks of whiting inshore of varying size along with huss, dabs, dogs and Pollack and coalies right close in.
    Mackerel are around in the odd shoals a little further off mixed with herring.
    A few congers showing off the wrecks which make for a good scrap.
