About the Skipper:

Always run a cheerfull boat, easy going, always on hand to give help and advice if needed. Got my skippers and offshore yachtmaster
certificates, a boat called Malaki, what a life !! perhaps l'll meet you one day.

    Went out with Barry couple weeks back, absolute top guy made sure we was all looked after and put us on a couple of top marks. Guy knows his stuff. Thank you Barry will definitely be booking for some cod very soon, alan

  • 5-star Peter Clark (21/07/2018)

    First time ever fishing. Barry came highly recommended according to our group organiser who knows his stuff.

    Barry was on time, friendly in his own way. A proper character, happy to teach a few total novices and he held his patience when we got it wrong, very wrong at times.

    He knows the area clearly, we were on fish all day. The boat is immaculate, well maintained, comfortable for what it is but his tea / coffee skills are poor. (told you I'd say it).

    Great sense of humour, kept us laughing all day and takes a joke well.

    We all caught something, had his help when needes for the novices and I look forward to going again.

  • 5-star mick barry (08/07/2018)

    Thanks Barry, for a cracking day's sport, plenty of Tope and Rays including a nice Blonde, you certainly know how to find the fish, and the banter was superb, looking forward to the next one, see you soon.

    Skippers Reponse: Brilliant day Mick really enjoyed it. not sure if you lot are in front with banter got confused half way through the day.

  • 5-star Mick Barry (27/05/2018)

    Had a great days fishing 27 May, Barry put us on the fish yet again, smoothounds and bream for everyone, only one mackerel, the smoothounds were really great sport on really light bream gear, looking forward to the next one, cheers Barry

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Mick, a really good crew and a nice day with a bit of a laugh.

  • 5-star Simon Mawdsley (13/08/2017)

    Great trip on the Malaki. Barry pulled the productive marks out of his hat again and we all caught some nice fish. Tope, Bullhuss, gurnard, and loads of mackerel. enjoyed the razor sharp wit on board.

    17 Apr 2016 by bernard medhurst

    Me and a few friends deciced to have a days wreck fishing so we booked up wiith Barry Handley on Malaki . We were told to be at sparks marina for 7am start.Well we all met up at 6:30am,loaded the tackle on the boat ,then we left the marina at 7 sharp. The weather was great, the sun was out and the sea was flat,so we were all looking at each other hoping for a good day.Little did we know what was in store.We made our way out to the first wreck which took about 2hrs,which we took a few fish off,then we moved to the next wreck with the same result. Barry then said lines up we are going out further to the next wreck. When we arrived barry lined the boat up and gave the call to drop our lures down,then we were all into big Pollock.on each drift we were taking double figure fish. Sreve harber on the back had 5 fish up to 15lb 9ozs, Stuart had 9 fish up to 16lb, Brains biggest 11lb and Jason the skippers son after mixed start had fish up to 12lb 6ozs. When we had enough fish we upped lines headed for home. what a great days fishing with most fish into double figures. Thanks barry for putting us onto the fish and the rest of the crew for making it such a good day. Some of catch can be seen on the web site

    Fishing Report by Stuart Cross on Malaki 20/4/16

    The voices in my head forced me to go fishing again {medication not working] Me , my dad and mate Basher had a day on Malaki with Barry Handley. It was a cracking day - great weather and great fishing . We went straight out on the 40 mile wrecks picking up a few good table size Pollack on the first couple.
    We then moved to one that had mainly low doubles on it. A very small tide so I opted for my fast retrieve reel- bingo 9 pollock to 16lb most of them doubles. My dad was on a slow retrieve reel – 2 pollock – rubbish whooped his arse ! We both lost a couple that just kept going with rods bent double- bugger! Basher had 5, all good fish biggest 14lb I think.
    After my dad and mini me beating me on the last two trips it was time for pay back- whose the daddy!! Just a quick piece of advice, if your fishing sidewinders and your having a friendly competition a packet of wine gums will help, cut all different colours into small pieces, match the colour to the lure and place on your mates hook point it’s a darstadly plan but very effective!
    When they say the fish are finicky, make sure you keep a straight face 40 miles is too far to swim.
    Thanks Barry laughed all day.
