We went out at lunchtime today and had a great trip, really enjoyable. Caught a few mackerel, which will be on BBQ tonight. Great fun and a knowledgeable skipper (sorry I have forgotten his name). Would recommend to anyone.

Booked my son and nephew on fishing trip. Booked the day before. Great communication with Harry May. His skipper Bob read the waters well. Caught mackerel, whiting and dog fish. Both lads really chuffed. Thanks Harry see you again on our next visit.
