A lovely late October day and a perfect morning’s fishing on Sunbeam, superbly skippered by Bob who had us catching good sized Black Bream straight away. Other fish included big mackerel, a Conger of at least 25lbs and even a Garfish. Highly recommended, a great...More

We decided to go mackerel fishing as it was a grey day. All the lines/bait were provided, all we had to do was turn up. The skipper (Harry) was a lovely local man with a lot of knowledge. Unfortunately, we did not catch any fish...More

Thank you oillyyyw for taking the time to write that, sorry about the lack of fish, since then it has bucked up a bit with quite a few mackerel but mostly small ones.......BUT fantastic weather.

One hour trip for mackerel, caught several, Harry filleted them and we took them to Herby's fish and chip van to cook. Ate the filets (beautifully pan fried) and chips on the beach in wintery sunshine - what could be better!

Great 3 hour deep sea fishing trip. Lots of fun even for a beginner. Love that the local chippy cooks the mackerel you catch! Thanks Harry, we will come back again. Lisa and Paul.

Its a service I am so glad I was able to arrange. The chippy only does it for me and it gives people the chance to taste REALLY fresh fish.......that they caught. Thanks for the review.

We visited yesterday afternoon. Despite none of the visitors onboard catching anything, the kids had a good time trying to catch mackerel. I think we were just unlucky, shame as we'd planned to barbecue our catch!

Thank Jane M
harry3287, Owner at Harry May Boat Trips, responded to this reviewResponded 2 September 2017

Thanks Jane M for that. All of us skippers try SO hard to find mackerel for our passengers, none of us like returning to port empty handed, especially where children are concerned, but it happens. Thanks for the 4 stars Harry
