IMPORTANT. on booking the whole boat, we are coded for 10 places which has to be covered, it means what it says not expecting to pay for 6 places when your mates let YOU down.Organisers of trips please be aware best to collect all funds before sail date to protect the others in case of let downs, responsibility is the group who have booked not the skippers.

If you have a certain day or date in mind or wish to target a certain species we will make up trip for you will even try add people from our own database so you dont have to book the whole boat. Best to talk about your day first to make sure you pick the right tide for best fishing for what you want to do.

Please bear in mind boat bookings ten places have to be covered financially up to you how many people you have onboard up to ten which will split the cost. This however gives you control over departing and returning times to suit yourself.

    Great days fishing. Went to the bass banks and all on board had fish. As the tide slackened the bass went off the feed and the smoothies started biting. As the sea picked up we headed inshore more more smoothies, doggies and just when I thought I’d gotten away with it I caught my only whiting of the day.
    Felt vert safe on the boat, all COVID measures in place and reduced POB to ensure social distancing.

    Skippers Reponse: I didnt think you recognized me in my mask! Good day Paul i thought for the tides strength everyone done well. Nice to see you out after this lock down. Cheers Paul

    Rang up and spoke to Jon. A truly very helpful chap!! Explained everything and answered all questions.. Brilliant day with Martin as skipper.. very well organised, plenty of info, good fishing. Bass, rays, smoothhound shark, whiting and spotted dog fish, all caught! Saw the seals, that came up to the boat! Plenty of help available for all fishermen! Nothing was too much for the skipper! Great banter, great atmosphere, great bacon butties!! Tea/coffee at the ready with chocy biscuits for the well behaved (aka - everyone) Can’t recommend highly enough! Certainly a trip that would suit anyone - experienced or not!!! I have Booked another trip with 5 others already! Looking forward to another fantastic and rewarding day out!!

    To bring us up to date extremely hard report for me i sadly wish to inform everybody i lost my gorgeous girl Hayley to cancer March 4th 2020 after her 5 month battle life very tough without her as you can imagine. We shared 14 wonderful years together life is not fair sometimes but she would want me to carry on regardless. Big thank you to Martin Bishop for keeping the trips going last year and up to this virus, i hope between us to be continuing fishing as soon as we get clearance officially which seems to be very shortly although be it with some restrictions. Will be making more calls tomorrow and keep you informed on here. Looking forward to getting out hopefully have a good summer and try get back to a normal life. Many thanks. Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Bringing us up to date Feb 12th 2020 been battered by all these storms managed to get out today having lost previous weekend. Caught few bass lately all returned of course due to legislation best 5.5lb picture here with Paul Layton regular on High flyer 2 , odd codling showing up not in numbers were still waiting ! Amazingly the thornbacks are a steady trickle they havent left really all winter like they normally do good for us. Still got whiting stripping the baits at times grateful for them so wont complain. Caught first couple spotty dogs inshore which are early for us not normally till end march just shows how things are changing. website up to date daily get your wrecking or tope dates down will advise as to tides . Look forward to seeing you on High Flyer 2 soon until then tight lines everyone. Cheers Jon
