What happens on the day?

Upon your arrival at the marina in the morning, you’ll be welcomed by your skipper and shown aboard your fishing boat where you will be given a full briefing on safety and an outline of the day ahead. You’ll depart the marina and make your way out onto the wonderful Bristol Channel. Once a good spot has been chosen, the anchor will be dropped and you and your fellow anglers can really get going.

You will be issued with a rod, reel and bait for the day and given demonstrations on baiting up and casting. Not to worry if you’re a complete beginner as you will be given help and advice from your expert skipper, all day. You will spend around six hours fishing and not only will you be emailed any photos of your day but you can even take your catch home.

“Brilliant days fishing, caught plenty”

Had a brilliant day on anchorman out of Penarth, the trip was booked as a gift and couldn’t have gone much better. We were looked after so well by Dave and his crew hand. The loan gear and bait worked a treat, I even caught the biggest fish! I would thoroughly recommend this skipper for a trip out. Thanks,J
