Sea Fishing

We offer 2 hour ‘taster’ trips (incl. Mackerel) or 4 & 8 hour trips. All are welcome, from the less experienced to the species hunter, Children and Ladies most welcome. We have over 44 years sea fishing experience, and are very happy to offer as much help as you feel you need to get the best from your time afloat, and to maximise your catch. We do not do long distance wrecking trips, but do however, fish the closer wrecks for Eels, Cod, Pollock etc. but we really specialise in Plaice, Bream, Tope, Smooth-hound, Bull Huss, Bass, Skate, winter Cod etc.- Should you have any particular species in mind, please call for impartial and honest advice. Catering for the individual angler to small groups or whole boat charters the boat is licenced for 12 passengers. We go to sea with a minimum of just 3 anglers. Rod and tackle hire is available. Free Tea and Coffee.
