Tried to book for husbands birthday, but Jack said weather too iffy - we managed to arrange for the next day and joined two others (five in total). Really helpful, gave us a quick lesson and gave us rods and bait (pre-arranged). Good laugh (great weather helped!) and some fish caught. Jack appears to know his area and fishing, interesting to talk to too.
Advise warm and waterproof clothing, and footwear suitable for a boat. Suncream will save you burning, as sun or even just light will reflect off the sea. You can take your fish home at the end of the day!

Booked a 5 hour trip with a friend. There were supposed to be on the trip, 2 didn't show or inform the boat owner they were not coming. Not very nice.
We set off in the boat, a sturdy boat, wide open stern to allow plenty of fishing, and vast for just 4. The weather was very good, cloudy but little wind and a nice temperature. The sea got a bit lumpy, but the boat handled it well and it was quite a laugh with spray lashing round.
On arrival at the fishing ground we were handed our rods and a brief demo of what to do, and as Jack, the owner was showing, he caught 2 fish.
We had a good 3 1/2 hours fishing, catching a large amount of mackerel, some whiting, the odd gurnard and dab, and to finish, a nice bull huss.
Sadly for one of the other 2 he arrived at the fishing ground and spent 3 1/2 hours with his head over the side providing ground bait. His mate had a small episode later, but battled on. Maybe it was the smell of the sausages Jack cooked?
As stated, a good day and one I have no doubt we will repeat.

Do not use!! Fishing trip booked for 8 lads 3 months prior only to find out when arrived they had double booked. A text message was sent confirming our arrival 2 days prior with a response off the company to say all was good and see us there.

We were all up at crack of dawn for the 100+ mile trip looking forward to the day out but as soon as we arrived it appeared the company had decided to favour his friends that ring only night the night before and told us our trip was therefore cancelled!!

Not only this, the guy who organised said that we would not be able to get our money back there and then and would post a cheque as he didn't carry anything. Only for 3 of the guys in our party that we're rather annoyed and kept pressing we would not have walked away with our it there and then.

Given the total unreliability of this company I wouldn't have liked to of trusted receiving a cheque by post any way!!

Our only recommendation is DO NOT USE the most unreliable, obnoxious idiots that call themselves a company!!!!!!

Jack T T, Manager at Incentive Sea Fishing, responded to this reviewResponded June 14, 2017

When booking the trip on the phone you were asked to ring in at 7.30pm the night before the trip to confirm the weather. Yes, contact was made between booking and a couple of days before the date of the trip but all customers are told to ring in at 7.30pm the night before the trip to check weather and sea conditions are suitable for the day ahead. By 10pm the night before and no phonecall recieved from the group i recieved a call from another small group of individuals let down at the last moment. This financially was a much less profitable trip for us than the charter booked but better than losing the day completely as i thought was going to be the case as knowone rang in.

Booking is really easy, great comms from Jack, the boat is really nice and well laid out as you would expect, very easy to find just beside the tourist information office, a warm welcome on board and then out to sea, Jack on hand to assist the novice and ready to net the fish for the experts, Loads of fish caught by everyone, Jack seemes to have a sixth sense on where they are ! Tea and coffee provided, as is the fishing rods and bait if needed, this was one of the best fishing trips I have been on, I would highly recommend it
