September 14th to 17th, out with Zac Cairns, on Valkyrie 6, what a wonderful skipper and boat, our crew of 8 suffered a horrendous 7 hour slog to get to Alderney, but on arrival Zac put us straight on the fish, and it didn't stop all weekend.
There were many pb's recorded during the four days, including Tope to 47lbs, Blonde ray to 24lbs, Conger to 44lbs, Red Gurnard to 2lbs, Black Bream to 3lbs, an Atlantic Chub Mackerel of about a pound and a half, and the highlight of the trip was a fine Couch's Bream of 3lbs 14oz for myself.

I am sure this will be rejected however I will try. I have no experience of these gents as charter skippers but as another user of Chichester harbour I find them to be most inconsiderate. They return on a Sunday evening steaming at excessive speed kicking up one hell of a wash. They should keep to the 6 kn limit.
Skippers Reponse: K wind , I see you start your review with I’m sure this will be rejected, well we except all reviews good or bad that’s how we learn,thank you for your review, we take the speed limit in the harbour very seriously and we are aware of the wash our vessels can creat at low speeds , this is due to the displacement , the speed limit is 8 knts not 6 , you are very welcome to contact us and we will gladly answer any concerns you may have . Kind regards Glen

Another great day out on the boat with glen, this time for a trip at anchor over a wreck....mackerel conspicuous in their absence, but a great day had nonetheless, lots of ling, conger, and bream, as well as pout, bullhuss and a great sun tan :P good banter on board as always, and glen seriously knows his stuff, couldnt reccommend him highly enough :)

Top day's fishing with Zak, for the first time. Plenty of mid-channel wrecks fished, some produced while other drew a blank. Glen was out and fishing some of the wrecks together. Zak soon picked up the pace and put us on the fish. Between wrecks we were treated to a pod of Dolphins chasing the bow wave. People pay good money for such trips and here we were with a value add. The sun shone, the wind dropped, and the fish just kept coming, credit to Zak. With the 2nd ice box, so many fish, in use by the end of the trip, top Day, Recommended.
Skippers Reponse: Thanks Lee, im sure Zac will appreciate your kind words,

Out with Zak, first time, on Friday, Wrecking. 1st Wreck produced some nice Pollock for a chosen few. Next few wrecks produced very little and soon it was lunch time. Glen wasn't fairing any better, some consolation

Skippers Reponse: Got to have Johny Cash on..

Had a great day, and Glen was brilliant. Great knowledge and very approachable. The boat is fantastic, with a brilliant cabin, but more importantly, a large and stable fishing platform with live bait tanks. Great boat, great skipper. Will go nowhere else now.
Skippers Reponse: Hi Mike, thankyou for kind words, i look forward to fishing with you again...
