  • 03/2020 Fishing Report by David Hancock

    Mar 2020 by David Hancock

    In light of recent developments we feel that as a responsible charter boat it is correct that we suspend taking trips for 6 weeks.
    This is for the safety of our families and possibly yours.
    We will review the situation at the end of April .

    We welcome enquiries and bookings for the summer and autumn.
    Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
    Please stay safe and follow the Government guidelines.

    Best regards,

    Gutting because we've caught some cracking fish over our last few trips, 12/15 skate a trip, good hounds showing, a few congers, heyho let's stay healthy !

    Plenty of availability after the end of January, please book as early as possible to get the best tides etc.

    We are proudly hosting the Home Internationals at Milford Haven again this year and looking forward to seeing you all for some great trips.

    Unless we have a huge spike in diesel costs the prices of all trips are the same as the last few years. Hopefully there will be no need to increase them .
    If you'd like to know some options for accommodation for sharking trips etc, please call me,

  • 06/2016 Fishing Report by David Hancock

    Jun 2016 by David Hancock

    We were honoured to be one of the boats used for the prestigious RAF v Police boat angling final.
    I must say the guys from both teams were an absolute pleasure to have on board and certainly fished well .
    The practice day showed up the usual expected species, various Wrasse, Pollock, Cod, launce, dogfish and a few more . We had bonus fish such as a cracking Blonde Ray as well.
    On the match day the wind was kind to us and the first session drifting on the reefs was in calm water which made it easy. Very soon a stream of Ballan Wrasse, Cuckoos, Pollock, Cod, Coalfish and more was coming onto the boat, great fishing.
    For the second 2 hour session we anchored over a sandy area. Initially we caught a couple of dogfish but the fishing seemed slower than we had expected. On the practice day we had caught Dabs and Dogs prolifically.
    Soon if became apparent as to what had changed as a Spurdog was bought to the surface, then another, then another ! These voracious predators had moved the normal species out.
    The lads quickly responded and changed rigs from 3 hook scratchers to single and double flowing traces with beefier hooks and line. Soon it was pandemonium on deck as we landed and returned 88 Spurdogs in the allotted 2 hour session. Well done lads, you were awesome !
    For the third session we anchored over rocky ground, to be honest it was a bit of an anticlimax after what had just happened but the lads still fished intently and put a few more species that we hadn't already recorded onto the score sheet.
    A very pleasurable and memorable day, for all the right reasons,

    Thank you.

    Keep it tight,

    As our colonial brothers say, the bite is hot !

    Some great eating pollock caught by Phinney's gang from the little old US of A,
    Nice 'n' easy to catch and tasty treats for tea , awesome fishing .
    The inshore reef fishing is epic , yee ha !

    On the smaller tides we've been after the various inshore sharks.
    Tenby & District Angling Club ably assisted by James L and Cai found 5 species of sharks,
    including a nice 21 lb Tope for club Officer Nev and a cracking 32/35 lb Tope for James L.
    Plenty of Bull Huss around the double figure mark coming to the boat.
    Fresh or frozen Mackeral seems to be the preferred bait.

    Club President Mike found a cracking specimen Red Gurnard, showing that class always shines through !
