Matt Toms (skipper)
Is from a long bloodline of fisherman who have been fishing in the bay for over 200 years (That's local knowledge!).
An experienced fisherman local to to the west bay area, is there to help steer the ship, gut fish, teach novices and look pretty.
This is aimed at those wishing to catch something other than mackerel. Fishing is done at anchor and is suitable for families. Steaming time 25 mins.
This is our most popular trip, where we anchor over one of the many reefs in lyme bay for various species according to the season. Steaming time is usually around 40 mins.
Most of our eight hour trips are done early or late in our season or by those chartering the whole boat. Read the skippers blog to find out which fish you are likely to catch, at the time you book a trip.
