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.

Self employed or company corporate days why not ask for written receipt as fully tax deductable.

We do from time to time television work/surveys, sonar towing, item recovery, involved in bird and seal survey if we can help we will. Unfortunately this new vessel is not suitable for diving.

    another lovely day out with High Flyer, weather was idea, although there was still a swell from the day before, skipper provided plenty of refreshments, soup and chocolate bars. we caught skate, & codling, plus the obligatory whiting, an excellent day out with the lads

    Skippers Reponse: Always enjoy your group Derek looking forward to next year very much appreciate all the trips throughout the year . Cheers Jon

    First opportunity to get out after several cancellations due to strong winds. We stayed inshore protected from the gusty westerly wind. Bit chilly but escaped any rain.Fishing was slow until the tide turned but then doggies and whiting were coming aboard regularly. One thornback about 4lbs returned to fight another day. Everyone on coffee today which was flowing freely as usual along with biscuits.

    Skippers Reponse: Not a bad day in all john hope we get a weather break soon mate!!! Cheers

    Good days fishing today. It was a bit lumpy to start but we were able to fish comfortably. Hunting for mackerel for bait we were initially plagued with sand eels. We did start getting mackerel of a good size the biggest around 2lbs. We then drifted a wreck waiting for tide to start running but only got a pouting a tub Gurnard and a couple of weavers. We then anchored up on the tope ground and boated 10 lost one at the side of the boat and two which dropped the bait after a short run. Jon and Paul generously handed their rods to a couple of the lads who had never caught a tope to make their day although I think Paul was tired having caught three already. Jon was busy landing tope but still managed to make tea and coffee . All tope were close to 40 lbs and biggest 55lbs and all were returned safely

    Skippers Reponse: Think we have to leave Paul at home next time John give ourselves a chance!!!! Not a bad day in all mate.

    another excellent day out with Jon, fishing was a bit slow but he managed to put us amongst smooth hounds and we had some real sport. thank you Jon, for the biscuits, choc bars and refreshments. looking forward to our next trip.

    Skippers Reponse: We got there in the end Derek many thanks for the day mate
    Cheers Jon

    So guys looking forward to a break from all this lovely british weather constant wind and rain enough to test saints patience! We should start in next few weeks see few more thornbacks arrive along with the spotty dogs i know there a pain but break any boredom! i very much doubt we get a spring codling run your guess is as good as mine but past history leads me to believe we wont. Tons of herring and sprats around so will be stocking up on bait in next coming days if we can get out. The tope trips this year fall mainly on weekdays with few weekends just way tides are this year. This leaves us bass to go for during the stronger tides so not a bad thing. The tope dates will be on here july, Aug Sep so get your name down as fill quickly best to text me 07920043979 will get message soon as back inshore reception. We are running at £60 per day everything supplied on a normal trip and still £75 for tope havent put any prices up fuel seems to have levelled out for time being thank god. New legislation requires all mackerel caught for bait being kept alive as offence to have undersize fish onboard at anytime i know what your thinking so we will be running tanks to adhere so be aware and we will keep the frozen undersize that we buy separate to save confusion thanks IFCA. Well looking forward to being of service lets hope weather plays ball this year! until then tight lines

    Looking forward to colder weather lets hope the cod come in for us, been a strange year really with the wind in the summer north east alot not a great deal of mackerel or tope to speak of, now running just the one boat so bookings in advance neccessary or you will miss out. Going to enforce the paypal deposit system due to the constant letdown by people who dont have no respect for self employed who rely on your word for turning up i can only apoligise to the reliable people in this world who pay the penalty for these idiots comduct. I must apoligise for the lack of information this year but due to personal circumstances which are now getting sorted hopefully will get back to normal . So looking ahead already the whiting making a show odd codling this weekend on another local vessel so fingers crossed for this winter looking forward to being of service see you all soon.
