What a fantastic day we've had. Good catches of over 60 skate and a few doggies and whiting . I've been looking for a good skipper for some time. On the recommendation of a friend we booked. Certainly coming again. Phil provided tuition when needed and more tea than I've ever been offered on a boat trip before.

Phil looked after us all very well. He is well set up, with good quality fishing equipment, and the boat has lots of rod holders on the gunnels. On top of that, he knew where the fish were. In the first half hour, we landed 3 rays. Although the conditions were tough, with a strong south westerly, we got through the day with a total 17 fish landed (mostly rays), keeping a couple for the pot. Thank you so much.

At last with a spell of settled weather we managed to get offshore and yet again Phil put us on the fish with a good number of thornbacks comming to the boat,another good days fishing I will be going again ina few weeks by whic time the rays should really have their heads down and feeding

Thanks to Phil for managing to fit a trip in for us at very short notice it was as usual a great day out with one of the best skippers around and plenty of hard fighting hounds to keep us all occupied

Had a day out today on the Chinook 3 with my son. First time on this boat after booking at short notice when i couldn't get out on the normal charter that we use. It turned out to be a very good decision and i would highly recomend this boat. We got off nice and early to make best use of the tide and were on our first mark within the hour. Skipper Phil had the kettle on already and we had squid and herring provided. That was the start of one of the best days skate fishing that we have had, we stopped counting after 20 skate and the normal dogfish on top of that.Phil when not making regular cups of tea was with us on deck, unhooking fish and giving good advice, he worked hard, clearly wanting us to have a good day, and we did, Can't say much more than that, great modern, fast boat with an excellent skipper,will definitely be booking again.

Phil worked extremely hard to put us on to the fish in testing conditions, trying a few different marks. Cracking boat, lovely location, great skipper. I would recommend this charter.

Just spent a fantastic day onboard the chinook 3. Phil the skipper was first class, he offered help, advice and a great cup of tea! (With biscuits!!). I throughly enjoyed the day and would not hesitate recommending Phil to anyone. I will be booking another trip on the chinook 3 in the very near future. Thankyou for a great day Phil.

I have been out with Phil on many occasions and he has always put us on the Fish, however Sunday 8th June was without doubt the best days Boat Fishing I have ever experienced, we caught right from the off and between three of us landed over 40 Skate and 150 Mackerel, as well as countless Dogfish, Smoothound and even a bonus Turbot. A more helpful and knowledgable Skipper you will not find. Can't wait for the next trip.
