Booking Diary,Gift certificate and Payment Page
PLEASE READ THIS, IT IS IMPORTANT YOU UNDERSTAND
the Month you would like to come, see what Dates we have
free, if the Date you require is free, please give us a
ring. You can email me, but as we live onboard I am not
able to access the internet every day. I keep the Diary
as up to date as time will allow, you can see the date I last updated the diary above the Monthly boxes below, the diary can only be
a guide as the phone is always ringing and I have no Instant
way of updating it. It is there more for long term weekend
bookings. So ring us to make sure that the date is still
free so you won't be disappointed. I have tried to give
an Idea of what fishing we might be doing during the course
of a Month, but obviously this is all subject to the winds,
weather, trawlers and the natural movements of the fish. Rest
assured if we don't catch well, it won't be for the want
of trying on our part.
For quick reference the following colours are used on the individual Diary pages to represent the following:
The Days are Fully Booked.
We have Spaces Available for All Day trips, 8/10 hours.
Half Day Bookings, normally 9am-1pm then 2pm -6pm.
||Days are free
We run evening Bass fishing trips in the Summer Months if we have enough people to make a trip viable, (6 persons minimum) These are normally booked at short notice so will not be advertised on the Diary pages. So if you fancy a trip after work give us a call.
first! - Don't assume. ## Most
of the best tides for weekend bookings have been snaffled
up well in advance by the Guys in the know. Book early.
## Never order bait in advance
unless you are sure of the weather, it can be fickle, talk
to us first, local tackle shops normally have a supply that
can be picked up on the day. ##
Bring clothes for all seasons, even in the Summer it can
get very cold at sea. You can always take off a layer if
it turns out warm, you can't put it on if you haven't got
it with you. ## Sun screen
is a must at sea, you've no shade and the sun can be strong,
without feeling hot,- remember to make sure you wash it
off your hands before touching your bait, the fish really
don't like it! ## If you have
booked Bed and Breakfast with us and are staying onboard
overnight, don't forget your sleeping bag, We supply pillows
if you don't want to bring your own. We are happy to supply
clean pillow cases, but to launder 8 lots of bed linen
is beyond our resorces. ## If
you want to try something different with a group of friends,
give us a try, so long as it's legal, we're happy to help.
