What you can expect from spending a day out fishing with us.
Please arrive by latest 06:00 am or earlier if specified. Don’t be late or we will leave without you.
WHAT TO WEAR:
It can be wet, windy, cold, hot, sunny, cloudy. Be prepared for any weather condition. Pack the appropriate fishing clothing, old clothing, shorts or longs with closed shoes, rubber soles preferably due to hooks and gaffs. Pack a windbreaker just in case of spray. Sunglasses for the glare, polarised preferable. Don’t forget your suncream and a hat that wont blow off..
We depart and take between 1 and 2 hours to get out to the fishing grounds depending on the conditions of the sea and weather but keep you updated with small talk about what we look for and other marine and bird life.
On route we supply a small breakfast in the form of muffins, fruit and drinks.
Once we get to where we want to fish, we set 6 lines total and give you a briefing of what and what not to do. We hand out harnesses or angling buckets to protect your anatomy.
We do have an onboard toilet for all our lady anglers as well as those men not so well endowed.
All the action starts once we get a strike or are called in on fish by my many other off-shore contacts on radio.
Lunch is offered in the form of sandwiches or roast chicken with snacks, crisps and drinks during the day.
TIME OUT AT SEA:
We fish until 15:00 hrs or earlier depending on the day. We return to the harbour by 16:00 to 17:00pm to cut up fish for you and a cold yeast upstairs in the bar.
