Our group of experienced anglers and 3 novices had a great day on the Oceanic , with everyone catching fish - Mackerel, small Cod, Ling (double figure fish lost at the boat side) and Pollack to 5lb ...with a lot help from Derek finding the fish. Thanks for a great day, Edgar Allen anglers.

well I took two first timers who wanted to catch at least one fish. Well they did more than that ...great day...Martin got us on the fish again and again. Looked after the 2 10yr olds as usual and make sure the day was great fun. Ill be back in a few weeks and sure my guests will also be back!. 30+ Cod on the day ..well we stopped counting. If you think should I go? ...get out there and have fun! Tight Lines .

First time out on a boat and must admit it was great, if your reading this then you are obviously thinking about it. Well don’t get out there and wet a line and enjoy it, I’ll be out again so see you soon boys

I am not one for commenting however I have been on this boat and also Oceanic many times. martin is a great skipper and as I have a 10yr old son he is more than happy to help. fillets fish and helps with line issues etc. sometimes no matter what you do the fish dont bite. its not called catching! This is afriendly boat and always a good laugh. I have never been and not caught fish. Its the only boats i would use.

went on the sagittarius yesterday and i have to say this was the worst experience ona boat me and quite a few others ever had. Skipper kept drifting over the same area when nobody was catching and very reluctant to move ground,we found ourselves fishing in 10 to 15ft of water quite a few times. I accept not catching when theres nothing going but surely the skipper should takke note and move ground,a lot of tackle was lost out there by biys making an effort, maybe the skipper shoul put an effort in too instead of sitting on his backside all day
Skippers Reponse: Kevin sorry you had a bad day the fishing west is poor at times & as the weather was poor in the morning south he tried the other way,Martin fillets fish for the lads & is a top skipper regards Derek

I recently enjoyed a great day out with Derek on the Oceanic, this new boat has it all loads of deck space, an on board toilet deck hands to help an advise and as much tea and coffee as you can drink. The boat is easy to access from a pontoon so no climbing down ladders and dropping your gear with ropes etc.
The fishing was fast and furious with plenty of Cod for all and a few good Pollock and Ling, as we moved closer to the shore at the end of the drift we also managed to pick up some nice wrasse.
I finished the day with 9 cod and a Pollock to name, the combination of great fishing a comfortable boat lovely weather and excellent company made this a day to remember.
Thanks Derek for a great days fishing, I will definitely be back for some more, I would recommend this boat to anyone, you are in the heart of cod country hear and you wont be disappointed.
