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

I normally use the Sea Juicer, out of Portsmouth, which is a very well appointed 38ft Bullet, run by Rob Hickin, 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.

Most of my dates for 2018, 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 2018, will go ahead, without being affected by the strong winds, that we encountered, in 2017.

We will also be looking to target more specific species, next year, giving everyone, more of a chance of improving, on their personal best's, which is not always possible, on general fishing days.

I have now added a forum, as well, where more information is available, the forum can be accessed from the forum button on the menu bar, the forum also contains a classifieds section, in case you are looking to buy or sell items.

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 pop on over to my forum, and post your questions there, i am sure we 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.

I am now putting together a 4 day trip to Alderney in 2018, this trip already has 7 definate bookings so only 1 place left on this trip.
