Departing from Keyhaven in Hampshire and usually fishing in Christchurch Bay or to the south of the Needles Lighthouse depending on the tides on the day. This is a special shorter trip aimed mainly at families and small private charter groups wanting to spend just a few hours out in the bay doing some fishing to see what they can catch. We supply all the rods tackle and bait so you just have to bring yourselves and a bite to eat and don't worry if you've never fished before we'll show you what to do. The 5 hour sea fishing trip is the next step up from mackerel trips giving people the chance to catch some different types of fish without having to stay out on the boat all day.

These trips are normal mixed species fishing so you never really know what you're going to catch but to give you an idea here's an approximate guide to the usual suspects.

April/May ~ Smoothound, Conger eel, Dogfish, Pout, Bream arrive in May.

June to September ~ As above plus Tope, Rays, Bream in June, Mackerel in July & August.

October to early January ~ Conger eel, Ray, Whiting, Dogfish.

Other species show up from time to time and every day is different with fishing so please don't take this list too literally, our trips are all about having an enjoyable time out on the boat for a few hours doing a bit of fishing to see what you can catch.

Please note: This is not Wreck fishing or Bass fishing, we don't do those.

5 hour private boat charters just for your group of friends & family or workmates etc can be booked for any available day from April to early January. We aim our charters and prices at the smaller groups of up to 5 or 6 anglers ideally but you can bring a maximum of 7 people if you really want to. By keeping the numbers on board our boats down to 6 anglers or less it makes for a much more enjoyable day for everyone with less tangles and more room to move around on the boat.


Unfortunately the coronavirus outbreak has thrown all our early season plans up in the air and out of the window as we're not really sure what to expect over the next weeks and months. For now we've decided not to run any trips during April and we will assess the situation on a month to month basis thereafter taking notice of all government advice and guidelines. If you have a trip booked with us during April we will be contacting you very soon.

All our private charter trips can still be booked in advance for later in the year and we will then assess the situation closer to the time of each booking, trips will only go ahead if both you and us are happy to do so and there is no foreseeable risk to anyone's health. Deposit payments will be refunded on any booking that has to be cancelled due to the coronavirus.

We apologise for any inconvenience and hope that everything can return to normal as soon as possible, please take care everyone and good health to you all.

If you'd like to contact us during March please email us or text Greg's mobile and I'll get back to you as soon as possible, our normal phone number will be active again from April.

After you have booked your fishing trip

When you make a booking with us we will confirm the details of the trip and give you a start time for you to be on board the boat at Keyhaven, directions for getting to Keyhaven and where to find the boat when you get there are all on the "Where to find us" page. You will also be asked to phone us at 7.00pm the night before your trip to confirm that the marine weather forecast and sea conditions are suitable for your trip to go ahead, PLEASE REMEMBER TO DO THIS!!! as our trips are fished on the open sea and we have to take notice of the weather forecasts to ensure your safety and enjoyment during the fishing trip.

Our decision on whether or not a trip goes ahead is based on our reading of the latest marine weather forecasts for the strength of the wind, our knowledge of the localised weather conditions and also our years of experience taking people fishing in our local waters, it's not just a matter of whether the sun is shining or not so please remember to phone us to check all is ok. Our aim is to give our customers an enjoyable and above all safe fishing trip so if we are forced to cancel a trip please try to understand that we make the decision with your best interests in mind. If your fishing trip is booked as a birthday present it is always a good idea to have a "plan B" in mind for your day, just in case the weather conditions prevent us from taking you out to sea.
