Mid April and went deep sea fishing for 3 hours with Harry. Our group was made up of five (2 adults, 5 year old, 11 year old, and a 15 year old). The day we went out was very windy and cold, Harry did his best for us and we caught several 'dog fish', including the kids. Great fun, enjoyed... More

We rung and booked, Harry didn't take a name so when we arrived everyone was piling onto the boat. Harry asked who had rung and luckily one man was honest to say he hadn't. He however, had a very young child, therefore we said we could go on tomorrow. Rung harry again the next day and booked on the 11... More

Hi Keziel21 After 45 years doing this job I have taken your advice and now write the bookings down although it would not have helped that day. I keep an account in my head and most of the time it works so on your particular trip a family of four booked and then your party phoned and you were five,... More

Skip was determined to help us catch one despite it being early in the season - much appreciated ! Will definitely do again when there... More

Went on a Sunday morning 3 hour fishing trip and had a fantastic time, the crew were friendly and helpful offering all of the help anybody needed, which was great as it was our first time. We were on the fish straight away and everyone on the boat had a good catch with several different species being caught. Enough of... More

An excellent trip out with Harry and our family of five (three boys of 10, 8 and 6). The boys each had a fishing line trailing off the back of the boat, with the two older ones easily able to pull in and check for fish when they felt a bite. We went out on a calm sunny day in... More

Friendly boat skipper put us at our ease and set up the lines for catching mackerel. We had sunny and calm conditions which made for a lovely hour long boat trip. Unfortunately they can't guarantee catching fish every trip and we were unlucky.

Harry's fishing trip was a wonderful way to spend a morning. Even though the weather was a bit foggy, Matt, our skipper, was a great guy to take us out for the morning. It was efficient, all the fishing rods were ready to go, as we arrived, we stepped straight onto the boat at 9:35, and fished for 3 hours,... More

Harry was great - very knowledgeable / competent - nothing too much trouble - we will certainly be back and would highly recommend Harry May as the 'Go to Guy' for fishing trips in Lyme..

Simon thank you very much for that review, its the first one of 2017 and right at the start of a brand new season. We have very high hopes for this year, all we need is some great weather and plenty of mackerel, not too much to ask is it ? Thank you again, really appreciated. Harry More

The trip was fairly short but we all caught several nice fish each, which we later barbequed on the beach. The boat gave a good view of the coast and an authentic experience of the sea.
