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.

    Lovely weather flat calm sea. Best day of the week. Fishing a little bit slow but three thornbacks to 7lbs landed and returned. Two decent bass to 5.5lbs roll on 1st March and one cod . Whiting and dab made up the day. As usual plentiful tea and biscuits .

    Skippers Reponse: Nice to see the bass this early John hoping the roker stay be a good season this year. Thanks for coming out mate. Cheers Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Great experience today at High Flyer 2 with the Skipper Martin Bishop, always very friendly and helpful . Can't wait for my next trip.

    Skippers Reponse: Many thanks Pedro glad Martin looked after you his tea making is improving all the while! Thanks for making the long journey and organising the lads its very much appreciated. Cheers Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Another good day out on Highflyer 2. 9 thornbacks landed and retuned. Unusual for January. Martin skipper today showed us all how it’s done and caught couple of keeper codling about time, as well as pouting and a spotty dog another surprise for January. Sea was flat calm with plenty of tea and bacon butties a good day all round

    Skippers Reponse: Good day all round John many thanks for review hopefully be able to join you guys soon. Leave me something to catch"! Cheers Jon (High Flyer 2")

    Family outing consisting of my dad, stepdad, stepbro and myself (yes, I know). 2 experienced and 2 newbies out for the day. Martin was an excellent skipper. Chatty, funny and knew his way around a kettle! Endless bags of rich, sugary goodies and homemade cakes his wife had made, made for a pleasant and hyperactive day. A very well equipped boat. I can't say I've ever been charter fishing when you can sit down on a padded bench and watch your rod... It was like Cunard, I tell you. Professional rod rests, so your precious isn't swept away by the one that got away. There was 6 on the boat (7 including the skipper) and there was plenty of room. I didn't notice anyone getting tangled up with anyone else. A few birds nests from the newbies. Seals sighted during a beautiful sunset, made for a very pleasant day. Unfortunately, the big Cod Martin ordered didn't show up, but there was a plethora of Whiting, a November Skate, a small dab (or flounder), I couldn't tell, it was teeny. Even a couple of Codling. No shopping trollies or C&A bags insight. I'm used to pee'ing off the front of boats, but High Flyer 2 had a very nice toilet to attend to after the 2 dozen cups of tea I sank. Extremely good value for money for a full days fishing. All of the aforementioned was included within the price and bait also! Rag/lug/and frozen baits (a bit cold for feathering for anything at that time of year). Martin was well experienced & knowledgeable. A safety briefing before setting off and endless laughs throughout the day.

    I will definitely be back.

    Thank you, we all had a cracking day!

    Skippers Reponse: Many thanks Drew for review its much appreciated, glad you enjoyed the day hope to see you guys again soon. Cheers Bud. Jon (High Flyer 2)

    Another good day on the High flyer 2. Martin looked after us well with plenty of hot drinks and billies. Everyone caught fish including smoothies doggies dab and of course whiting by the bucket load. Skate still around one 8lb and one small one both returned.Lets hope for some COD next time as the water starting to cool down.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks John wont be long hopefully pray for some cold weather!! Appreciate you bringing the bacon, thanks mate. Jon (High Flyer 2)

    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)
