About the Skipper:

Mick has fished the english channel taking charter trips since he was 15 years old. His father Jim Coker was well known as a charter skipper and Mick comissioned his own boat to be built at the age of 21. The Royal Charlotte, skippered by Mick, became renowned for its big catches, and was the only boat to set the port record at folkestone, many times, with his latest set at 4462 lb of cod and pollock in 5hrs (404 cod and 40 pollock). He has been nominated for Sea Angler ‘Top Skipper’ and Boat Angler ‘Super Skipper’ awards and the boat has been presented a plaque by Sea Angler Magazine “In recognition of running a first class charter boat that gives both service and value for money to our readers”

    Have fished with Mick for years, nearly always catch a good weight of fish, he goes out further at no extra cost, he knows the grounds so well and a fool would ignore his tackle advice this bloke really knows how to catch fish, if he's booked up his son Matt has a boat too. highly recommend them.
