Another great day on the mid channel wrecks. Once again John put us on the fish and everyone caught several.
Mike Tuckwell (08/06/2015)
Thanks John. A great day for "3 Men in a Boat'. Three wrecking spots produced good cod and pollock all day. Majority caught on numerous colour soft lures inter mingled with the odd 'Pirk' from invited guest "Santa' ( eal name withheld for good reason !) . All in all, fantastic day thanks to great wrecking spots, catch, weather and watching the 'unusal' fishing expertise from 'Santa' I booked this trip ( date) in 2014 based on advice from John re tides and potential etc. - Spot on John… really was a perfect day for wrecking which produced quality results in both catch and the fun of watching Santa's fishing techniques. Thanks for great day .. Can but hope for similar on next trip

Had a great day inshore breaming off Christchurch ledge. Some work colleagues of mine wanted to go fishing, so organised a day out with John, even though it is a bit of a trek from Kent and Sussex, as I have fished with him on a number of occasions before. It really is well worth going with a good skipper, who really knows his stuff, is willing to help anyone on board, and is good company to fish with. We had in excess of 70 Black Bream on the boat between 7 of us, returning small ones and females, but all had a good number of 2lb+ fish for the pot. We even had two over 4lb, the best being a 4lb 8oz cracker. Thanks for a great day John.

A brilliant day wrecking consisting of me and John. Hit the mark at 08:30 some 20 plus miles south of Needles. Cod on first drop and that set the trend for the day. Tested numerous lures with no clear advantage, they all worked. 26 cod ( 10 returned ), 2 pollack and 2 pouting (hmmmm). Add the pod of dolphins that passed 'Last Laugh' in the afternoon and that sealed the day. Thanks John, a fantastic day all round.

Another great day on Last Laugh.
Lots of Cod & Pollock many into double figures worth the journey to the far wrecks. Everybody happy as everybody caught many fish each.
Thanks John for another rewarding trip.

Last Laugh is aptly names as it is a great fishing boat with an outstanding Skipper in John. The best Bass and Wrecking experience I have had. John is a capable and commanding skipper who is devilishly good at finding the fish, and if you don't already know, he will coach you to better catches.

Great day out not seen cod of this calibre for over 20 years at Lymington. We had 4 over 20lb with the best at 28lb. It appears Lymington is back to it's best and this could be the year for many big cod.
We also had plenty of Dogs/Whiting/Pouting/Conger.
So get yourself booked out on Last Laugh before Xmas, great skipper, lots of tea and I believe a few spaces still avaliable.
See catch gallery on the website for some of the pictures..
