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.

  • 19/05/2022 Fishing Report by jon old

    19 May 2022 by jon old

    Just to update you had few nice smoothounds show up mixed in with some thornbacks weather been keeping in the eastern quarter alot so still slightly colder water for the time of year. hoping to see a spurt in numbers shortly as they do, not alot on the bass front for us at present they all seem to be hugging the beach and not on the banks but that will change. Got a few tope days with places here on website dont miss out as only can fish certain tides for them. High flyer had a revamp last week so dont wear your stilletoses on my newly painted deck!!! You can use the new toilet if you can figure it out. Looking forward to seeing you soon the weather can only get better. Fingers crossed.

    Up to date report nice to see start of smoothounds not in great numbers but that will come. Water temp still needs to climb bring more thornbacks closer in, noticed crab life on the bottom starting to be a nuisance so summers on its way. Plenty of spotty dogs of all sizes and still catching whiting! The wind has been bit testing as late so not really had a chance to nip out for bass but hopefully after next week we will get to have a go. We are out water 9th May to 13th may for usual maintenance antifoul etc so no trips next week still ring me will find you a vessel if i can. Tope trips are filling up dont lose out only got certain tides dont forget . Due to fuel hike now running at £60 a day per person everything supplied or trying to do shorter day midweek £45 to help out with those on a budget. Will keep you all posted what happens this weekend follow us on Facebook under Jon Old or High Flyer Sea Fishing. Until then tight lines people. Cheers Jon.

    Few thornbacks now showing off the Norfolk coast bit on the small side always are to start nice to see spring making a start now. Spotty dogs coming in as well still getting some decent whiting which seem to be all year round now. Picture today was off Rafal and son Jacob with first thornback and first trip on High Flyer 2.

    One issue we have to address is the hike in fuel costs affects all businesses in every aspect so unfortunately us included will be asking £60 everything supplied a trip from April 1st 2022 those who find this difficult we are going to get round this by using our second vessel Seaquest and do a shorter day which might suit some especially with children and ask £45 everything supplied.

    Our tope trips will be £75 per head this year everything supplied due to distance /fuel etc.

    Looking forward to being of service this year despite the situation lets hope we get less wind this summer for a change!!! Get your date booked in if your coming to visit us saves any disappointment . Many thanks

    Looking forward to spring this year been very tough here on us with very few codling this winter only now seeing odd one or two hoping we may have a little run soon. The whiting at times been prolific got us out of trouble to be honest! Caught thornbacks all winter not a bad thing give it a couple months we should be back in full swing with them hopefully and be moaning about spotty dogs as we always do. I say it every year but get your dates down for tope trips as the best tide days go fast and saves disappointment . Out for spurdogs middle of month new target species for us will keep you posted on that not the easiest of fish to target due to there feeding patterns but will see what we can do. Easy on a 5 mile longline not so easy on 100 yards behind a boat. Been asked alot to do father and son day again so when weather breaks will get organised on that . Looking forward to being of service will catch up with you soon,Tight Lines everyone,

    Bringing us to date the weather been a serious pain for us with lots of cancellations especially weekends when everybody wants to go. We will be making up trips between xmas and new year so if you fancy going please get in and book up few dates before xmas still left. Been too warm as yet far as our cod go hopefully these winds might stir things up a bit for us, whiting prolific this year still getting spotty dogs and odd thornback still looking to get offshore soon as weather allows. Leave it with you best to text on 07920043979 . Cheers Jon (High Flyer 2 Gt Yarmouth)
