My aim for this site is to publish information on, my own experiences on both, boat and shore angling, mostly related to areas to the east and west of the Isle of Wight.

However, I am prepared to publish catch reports, from other areas, if provided.

I run regular monthly charter boat trips, usually from Hayling Island, but also from Portsmouth, Poole, and Keyhaven, for various local groups, individual places are sometimes, available on the trips i run..

I normally use Malaki, out of Hayling Island, which is a very well appointed Offshore Pro-charter, run by Barry Handley, who is not only a very experienced skipper, but also a very accomplished angler in his own right, and normally fishes the Eastern Wight marks.

My dates for 2019, have already been finalised, these are filling up fast, due to the size of my client, database increasing all the time, check out the dates page for details.

Hopefully the trips organised for 2019, will go ahead, without being affected by the strong winds, that we encountered, in 2017 & 2018. We will also be looking to target more specific species, this year, giving everyone, more of a chance of improving, on their personal best's, which is not always possible, on general fishing days.

Beginners, juniors aged 12 or over, and ladies, are all welcome on the trips i run, and there is. a wealth of knowledge available to ensure you enjoy the trip, hire gear is available, at reasonable rates, set by the skippers i use.

Check out some of the successful trips i have run, by looking at the image pages.

If you are new to boat fishing, or are not sure on anything, then why not contact me, and i am sure i can give you the answers you are looking for, and put your mind at rest, especially if you are thinking, of going for the first time.

Details of the my next trips, can be found on the dates page.

Some useful information, can be found on the links page, there are links to the most popular weather reports, for anglers, as well as some links to, certain tackle manufacturers.

On the charter boats page, there are links to a few of the charter boats, that i have used, in the past.

Not sure of what you might catch, then check out, the seasonal catch page, and while you are checking, pop, onto the baits page, where you will find details of the most common baits used.

My dates for 2019, are now finalised, these will include, a 2 day Shark fishing trip from Penzance.

I am now in the process of organising another 4 day trip to Alderney, for 2020.
After the sucess of the last trip, this trip is already fully booked.
