From time to time, I get asked about coaching on boat trips. The charges of this will vary depending on the circumstances of the trip. I have a great deal of experience in all forms of UK boat fishing, especially inshore boat fishing, but am equally at home on long haul trips. If you have your own boat, I can coach you on tackle, tactics and marks and will be able to do so much more cheaply than if we need to book on a commercial vessel. Basically, the best thing to do is to contact me via email, explain your circumstances and what you would like to achieve. I will then put together a quotation and itinerary and come back to you for discussion.
It's always nice to get in amongst bigger fish, such as these pollack which were just part of a mixed haul from a good day's boat fishing. I always carry a good stock of artificial lures - essential for targeting pollack - but can also arrange for natural baits such as live prawns to give you a chance of other species such as bass. If there are a few of you - enough to fill a boat - I can put together a smashing day on the local reefs, using light tackle to produce a great range of different species.
The Skerries are brilliant for plaice and ideal for light tackle fishing, which transforms the sport that you can enjoy from these tasty flatfish. I have devised a number of strategies which not only work extremely well but will also maximise your chances of encountering any other species that might be available at the time of your trip.
