We had a thoroughly enjoyable 3 hours and Joe looked after us superbly. We even got an 18 year old interested in fishing. Just finished off a Sunday Lunch of Mackerel Pollock and Bream with the catch.

We had a great trip with Harry and caught plenty of mackerel to feed 10 for tea. Weather was a bit rough, but the trip was fun, well-organised and we were well looked after. Our age group ranged from 13 to 69.More

A really good experience - Harry entertained us during our one hour fishing trip with friendly banter. We caught 5 mackerel which we took home and ate. A fantastic fun time - hope to repeat again sometime soon

Well Luke you didn't say which boat you were on but very glad you caught lots. Luke you must never assume you are not going to catch anything when you come out with us, that is rarely the case. Thank you again Harry
