    We went fishing with my daughter, Florence. With Dave and Sarah’s help, she enjoyed her first ever fishing trip very much. Thank you both for giving us a brilliant day out.

    Skippers Reponse: Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, it was a pleasure meeting your family.

  • 5-star Scott Henderson (30/08/2017)

    My Father and I went out for an 8 hour fishing trip, off the Skerries bank, with Dave and Craig and had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Their hospitality was incredible- always making hot drinks/making conversation and also helping to land the fish. Dave did his upmost to keep us on the fish (where he was very successful) and also provided advice/assistance on how to catch them. His price is very good value for money and we would not hesitate to go out with him again or recommend him to others.

    2 trips out on Kellys Hero last week, my first ever. Great boat and skipper, crewman craig was excelent and helped everone onboard. Dave worked his socks off to put on the fish. Pity the fish wern't co-operating but we did find some fish on both days. Good craic with these guys. Thank you. Will try and get back for more trips soon - Regards Colin (Northampton)

    Great view of Brixham Harbour, great place to experience fishing either for the novice or the experienced angler. Looking forward to 2015

  • 05/05/2013 Fishing Report by Dave Saunders

    5 May 2013 by Dave Saunders

    Good numbers of Plaice still being caught off the Skerries Banks, wreck fishing is still proving to be lean due to the water teperature, May bloom and lack of bait fish this should soon change with the warmer weather.

  • 10/2012 Fishing Report by Dave Saunders

    Oct 2012 by Dave Saunders

    October has produced some good catches of Pollack on the inshore wrecks with Cod and Bass also making a show on the occasional trip. Sprats are abundant and are the reason that the bigger fish have now started to move onto the inner wrecks.
    It's good to have some upbeat anglers making bookings for next year (2013) already. Torbay Fishing Festival was interesting this year with good numbers of Black Bream showing and winning the top prize this year.

    Our diary is now available for 2013 bookings, I look forward to help you choose your tides and dates.
