    Great days fishing with Phil gave me lots of advice which paid off for me with a 15lb hound.
    Really enjoyed the day can’t wait for the next trip
    Thanks Phil

    Skippers Reponse: Hi Steve,
    Was a pleasure to meet you and thanks for taking the time to post a review. Glad you caught your personal best smoothound look forward to getting you out Again
    Thank you

    Has to be a 5 Star review from me across the board, this website gives all the info you need, to have a terrific day out at sea with Phil, nothing is too much trouble for Phil as he's determined u will have a great day. also as he rightly says banter a plenty, if u don't like fun and a laugh, don't go out with Phil, but coupled with this
    His knowledge is top notch, and probably one of the most helpful skippers, I've ever had the privelledge to fish with, and I have been on many many many charter boats over the years. I love that I can check on spaces available by clicking onto here, makes it so much easier. I actually have fallen in love with Braveheart 2, what a beautiful boat, loads of space, not all clogged up with various parafenalia.
    Ease of parking, and a short walk to the boat is a major plus for me.
    Fish, tea, banter, laughs a plenty.
    Superb skipper

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks nigel. The cheques in the post lol. Its always a pleasure having you rob and dave aboard as I know how much you like your fishing and always do my very best to give you all a good day. We've been catching some big smoothounds lately and have to get you out for that p.b ��
    All the best my friend

    I had a few trips with Phil on Braveheart Charters and always found him to be pleasant and a chirpy skipper always happy to help and good communication.

    He always tries hard to put you on the fish and has produce the goods on the 3 trips I have been on.

    I have noticed he gives tuition to the novice anglers and has a rod and reel hire on the boat and will supply bait if arranged although some frozen bait was supplied within the booking price of the boat.

    I had a good experience and will be booking in the future, thanks Phil and all credit goes to you.

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you for taking the time to re write a review, it's always nice to have good seasoned anglers like yourself aboard as apart from enjoying your own fishing, the less experienced anglers can also watch and learn from your fishing ability. I always work my hardest to give my anglers a good day.
    Cheers Phil

    Our group have had the pleasure of chartering this boat several times this year
    Top skipper Phil knows his stuff
    He has put us on some very nice fish with pbs a plenty
    He supplies decent rods reels and tackle if u don't have your own and will show you the best way to do everything from presenting the bait to correctly hooking the fish when u get a tug on your rod

    Phil is our go to skipper locally in Southend
    The boat is very fast too , the fastest fishing boat we've been out on
    We look forward to many fishing trips with him in the future
    Top skipper

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Alan for taking the time to write a review .I always look forward to taking you and your crew fishing always lots of laughs on board from a positive crew which makes for a great day out. See you soon.
    Best regards

  • 06/2022 Fishing Report by phillip browning

    Jun 2022 by phillip browning

    the movement inshore of the summer species is well underway , and the fishing for the most part has been very good and the weather for the most part has been settling down. The later part of April, we had the influx of smoothounds in good numbers and the average size has been exceptional. The good ol reliable thornback ray numbers have been down on previous years, largely to do with commercial pressure but the numbers are still good. Bass fishing has been a bit late to kick off this year but in recent weeks there are signs that we are in for a very good year ,and just pray that we get lots of settled weather. Thanks to all the Anglers and crews that have booked with me so far this year and it gives me great satisfaction and pleasure to give everyone a good day .
    This year I have started incorporating family trips into my charters especially for dad's mums, grandads etc who would like to give their kids/grandkids an enjoyable day out with a fishing experience . These trips are usually 5 or 6 hours in the sheltered waters of the river crouch at a cost of 260 for up to 7 anglers and can be very productive and give the kids a day they will never forget!

    See you all on board soon
