    Went out last Friday for a four hour trip, perfect weather, not great tides but still caught cod, pouting and mackerel. Frank (skipper) was friendly and knowledgeable and worked to get us over the fish and catching. Fab morning for me and Dad, would definitely recommend and we will be booking again. Thanks Frank!

    Had a fantastic 6-hour trip on Sunday morning. Skipper Frank so knowledgeable and friendly, and only went out once wind abated, so felt confident in his charge. Got us on top of the fish, caught shed load of mackerel plus flatties, poulting and cod. Well worth the £35 cost. 5*.
