The Skippers

Dave and Al have been around fishing for most of their lives. Dave used to be co-owner of Daves Tackle, a very popular tackle shop which was located on Weston Shore. Dave predominantly spent most of his time beach fishing and was a registered Sea Angler Magazine Casting instructor as well as being a regular at casting tournaments during the 80s and 90s. He could always be found at matches along the South Coast. By the turn of the century his interest in boat fishing peaked, and he made the change from beach to boat fishing in an almost seamless transition. He has fondest memories of the charter trips he went on regularly from Lymington after the famous Needles Cod. Al has over 35 years' fishing experience from beach and boat from many locations both home and abroad. He owned and skippered the charter boat SeaFox (Gosport) and has undertaken commercial boat work all around the country. Both skippers hold all the necessary commercially endorsed certifications to provide you with a safe and pleasant trip.

The Crew

Caroline is a relative newcomer to fishing. However do not let this fool you, as Caroline has been responsible for some cracking catches herself, including Cod to 26lb, Wrasse to 8lb, John Dory to 7lb, Thin Lipped Mullet to just shy of 8lb. Caroline will be on hand to net your fish and provide assistance throughout your trip. Caroline has completed all the necessary RYA Safety programs.
