Great day fishing, hard working operator. Really worked to put us on some good fish. Not afraid to keep moving until he found the fish.

First things first ... I love cooking fish. I love eating fish. I don't really love fishing. But my recent experience with Simon was simply one of the best experiences I've had fishing! He knows his spots. No decent hits in 5-10 minutes? Move on!...More

Avoid this charter. It's very frustrating to make a booking. The owner took the booking very unprofessional, he didn't ask your name and your contact number when you phone to book. He didn't provide any information of departure time and name of marina either. You...More
