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.

    Bringing us up to date of Sunday july 14th quite a lumpy day with 25mph northerly wind straight against tide ! Had to fish inshore but managed to nip out for couple hrs first thing. Pinched a bucket full of fresh mackerel thanks for the weavers as well lads , had half dozen bass thrown in as well which was nice. Biggest one here today pictured with Peter all returned for another day well done for conservation . forced inside we managed couple skate rest was small smoothounds and whiting. Not the greatest day but thought we done well due to conditions. Big thanks to Steve from S&P Leisure Ipswich for organising the trip also to Ninian who supported charity FIsh For Benny was a great day of banter look forward to seeing you all again. Much appreciated.

    Up to date weekend of 6/7th July 2019 weird weather again raining and miserable on the saturday and sunny with northerly winds on the sunday. Very strong tides every fish earned to be honest. The mackerel were few and far between managed few bass best was 4.5lb to holidaymaker Kevin from Northampton, best fish in my opinion is the turbot pictured here with Jess Little (returned) nice to see. Few smoothounds thrown in plus the usual whiting, no skate this weekend probably all pinned to the seabed! Looking forward to tides dropping hoping to get on the tope grounds this thursday and weekend so will keep you posted. Big thanks to everyone over the weekend was hard work all round but enjoyed it. Till nextime. Jon (High flyer 2)

    Monday 24th June 2019 not the most easist of days struggled wth thornbacks today basically they didnt feed! Few small bass today,usual handfull of small joeys and one decent one pictured here with Ben Cole i must say well deserved. Ben is probably one of the most hardest working anglers that comes on High Flyer 2 a live mackerel paid off for him,thought i would let you guys guess the weight a little game i,m playing with Ben.! Well done mate ,fish returned safe and well great bit of conservation. Cheers Jon. (High Flyer 2)

    Sat 22nd June 2019 bit of a lumpy day to start with a south easterly wind against tide. Bit slow to start with catching mid flood but started getting some decent whiting and odd spotty dog as tide eased. Had to fish inside due to the weather, but wall to wall sunshine despite the wind, sum red faces end of day. Few nice smoothounds turned up for us picture today of Attila from London with best fish of the day, many thanks for the trip guys bit of a slow fishing day to be honest but for the weather i thought we done well. Look forward to seeing you guys again at some point. Many thanks . Jon (High Flyer 2)
