    GCSAC 3day trip Alderney skilled skipper experienced crew cheap B&B what more do you want? had a great time. The first day good with plenty Bream Scad Launce The 2nd 3rd day was catching.Bass 40Lb+tope I can say that both Steve an Garyy (crew) tried their hardest to put us on the fish and were full of good advice and very helpful in Two of the nicest charter staff I have met. There was a great friendly atmosphere on the boat which is very comfortable and cruises at a nice speed. .

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you David for your kind words. It was in fact a four day trip though, with day one, the transit day, seeing us fishing ground mid channel for Rays, tope, bream and conger. Overall 21 species landed. You were part of a lovely group of guys and for Gary and I, it was a pleasure to have you aboard.
