Been out with Rich on Mistress before, it was with my 11 year old son and it was his first time, Rich couldn’t help my son enough and he caught fish. Was out with him again today with my son and it was hard going but Rich still managed to get us a bag full of keepers (cod)
Would recommend to anyone from beginner to professional angler.

It was our greatest fishing trip so far! We traveled a long way from London to Whitby with a hope to catch our first cod. We arrived a day before to ensure we're on time, it was definitely worth the effort. What a truly great skipper Rich is! Friendly, helpful and most importantly - a real fishermen. Also, have to mention his assistant too, who was helping during the day, was well experienced, patient and polite. There was no time wasted on a slower marks - Rich was very prompt in relocating the boat and trying to put us on the fish all the time.
It was even better to see him fishing too . We had a good day and a good catch. I could have caught even more if I was more experienced angler, I had missed about 5 good baits. We had 31 ( 29 codlings + 2 whitings) between 3 of us and I believe I had the biggest one (1.5kg), but all fish was of a good size. The only regret is that the time was going fast and when we arrived to the last mark, where cod start baiting very actively - we had to leave and make our way back just after abut 30 minutes .
The boat was quite tight for 11 anglers and 2 crew in total. Rich deserves a much better and bigger boat.
Well done Rich!
Look forward to fishing with you again.

managed to get out today tide did not look good only 5mts but you have to be in it to win it . Only 2 of us plus rich on the boat after a couple of no shows but all credit to rich for taking us out knowing he not going to make any money for the day. We started out close to the harbour fishing over kelp and had a good hour taking small codling putting a lot back just in size , Had a move when tide got going then had a couple of good hours putting about 12 good size fish in my box from 3 to 8lb . Was quiet for a couple of hours at slack water then back on them for last hour don,t know what final count was but we had a great day cheers rich. ps you guys who didn,t get out missed a cracking day.
