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.

    Brilliant day, very strong wind but Jon put in on marks that we could fish comfortably. I caught plenty of fish - smoothies, doggies, dab, whiting and 2 skate biggest 8lb. Plenty of tea coffee and banter. Can’t wait to get out again.

    Skippers Reponse: Our lovely british summer! For the conditions we done well i thought Paul. Must get a calm day soon!!! Cheers Jon

  • 5-star Magdalena Dworzycka (03/08/2019)

    Me and few friends/family just had an amazing day, fishing with Jon. It wasn't our first experience with Jon but surely the best (out of 3)! Jon is a top guy and knows his business! Considering bad prognosis on the begging of the day, our crew had smashing catch ��
    I am a total beginner and don't know much about fishing but Jon is very patient and most helpful, and the best bit is,he allows me to rail his catch up! We totally loved fishing with Jon and definitely will be coming back for more! ( And bacon baps!)

    Skippers Reponse: Good day for conditions guys really enjoyed it. Dont tell about bacon rolls they will all want one! Appreciate your kind comments makes the job worth while. Many thanks. Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Skippers Reponse: Lovely review Attila many thanks, enjoyed the day pity a bit windy but got a few decent smoothounds. Look forward to crossing paths in the future was a pleasure, Thanks mate. Jon high flyer 2

    Quite a hard day today had a few hours slot before the weather would beat us so headed out to hopefully have a little feather odd bass maybe unfortunately not the case. Extremely dirty water compleat waste of time and fuel the previous big tides had done some damage out there mud everywhere. Headed back inside to a day of whiting few small smoothies only one thornback today pictured here with Bernard nice fish of about 8 lb. Bit of a early home today all other boats had left us and it just died! Thanks to everyone today was enjoyable but hard work. Cheers Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Big tides today water barreling through to start 12 oz just holding in 40ft! Least the sun was out slight south east wind against tide but very fishable. The smoothounds had disappeared today from yesterday only a few small ones not sure why ? Usual whiting thank god giving us something to do. Got boarded by MMO fisheries again not a bad thing keep the wrong people on there toes i suppose. Decided to head out to a bank further north as tide eased paid off with this cracking bass fell to Charlie from Cambridge shade over 8lb. I got a small bass (returned) nothing else from the mark so headed inside for a small thornback and usual whiting until it died again. Slow day but result for Charlie be glad to see the water slow down next week!! Thanks to Mick for organising the lads hope charlie didnt rub it in too much!!!! Cheers Guys. Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Big tides this weekend of Sat 3rd August 2019 was slightly worried especially with light easterly, we done exceptionally well i thought with smoothounds from the start, whitting most of the day i know there a pain but it keeps us busy. Moved when tide turned no slack at all to go have a feather, had to move again due to huge strings of weed. Ended up on the mud banks to finish the day with 3 thornbacks all returned really good for the conditions. Big thanks to locals Kev and Jude and Jonathans crew from Boston much appreciated. Picture today of Maggy with her first thornback woman outfishing the boys as usual! Looking forward to our Sep trip. Cheers Guys.

    Sunday 28th July 2019 windy little day with 6 to 8ft swells running through on the bank. Managed few buckets of mackerel some small bass thrown in for good measure. Drift fished due to the conditions then just before lunch headed in side to try our luck for skate. Unfortunately no luck there apart from a eel , small smoothies and whiting a chuck! Enjoyable day though many thanks to DXB Water and Crayford Abbs always a pleasure to see you. Well done Tony todays winner! Cheers jon (High Flyer)
