  • 5-star Anton Bull (01/09/2016)

    A great day out for my son, his friend and I. A 15th birthday fishing trip that couldn't have gone better. Colin was very welcoming and looked after us really well. My son caught his first smoothound (starry - 3lb) and his friend then caught a smoothound (common - 4lb). A few whiting thrown in as well and we went home with plenty for dinner. A great day out and we'll be back again.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Anton it was nice to see the boys catch a decent fish each

    A blustery day out of Lowestoft on Lead Us
    Sat 28-09-19
    A great day out with Steve and the lads from Tubes Scaffolding, had to stay inshore due to the blustery conditions, but that didn't stop the fish which started coming within minutes of dropping the anchor and continued steadily throughout the day , with lots of good sized whiting plenty of doggies and 2 nice thornbacks

    Hounds abound on Lead Us
    Following the success of Saturdays trip we headed back to the same mark anticipating similar results. Well we weren't disappointed with 5 hounds coming in on the first cast of the day just as the tide was dying away and a couple more at slack water. Things were quieter on the start of the ebb with the odd fish being landed, then mid tide it was if the switch had been thrown and things got hectic. On several occasions more than one fish was being landed at the same time this continued through the rest of the day with close on 50 hounds being landed most in the 5 to 7lb range with several fish being lost. To add to this great catch we had 4 Bass to 4lb plenty of whiting and a few spotties . A fantastic days fishing on Lead Us

    Houndtastic action on Lead Us
    20-06-18 / 23-06-18
    The first of our evening trips on 20th produced some good fish with half a dozen hounds to 7lb. Steve christened his new rod with a plump 2.5lb codling and a nice little thornback plus the compulsory spotties and whiting. More evening trips can be arranged on request
    Saturday 23-06-18 with the weather and tide in our favour headed to a mark I had been wanting to try for a while now and boy was it worth it. We arrived just as the tide was starting to ebb with the odd hound coming in then as the tide picked up things got hectic on numerous occasions there were 2 or 3 fish coming in at the same time with some lovely Hounds being landed along with some nice Bass. This continued throughout the day with everyone on the boat landing some nice fish until the weather beat us ending up with 36 Hounds between 5 & 7lb plus smaller ones. 4 Bass all around the 4lb mark all returned plus plenty of whiting and a couple of spotties a great day on Lead Us
