Went on the early morning trip, weather was good and lots of fish was caught by all, although very small in size and little was big enough to keep.  Plenty of BBQ for everyone, although we didn’t have time to each much as the fish were continually biting.  Will definitely go again in warmer weather. Paul the Captain was friendly and very knowledegable.

Good start to the morning with some stationary fishing with lots of small fish, followed by a hot BBQ breakfast and after trawling over a salmon ball. Lots of opportunity to pull in some good size salmon. Great day out

We chose to make the early morning (5:30 am) trip which turned out to be a great decision as it was the perfect morning and perfect day for fishing. We caught plenty from the time we arrived on the fishing spot to the time we left. The boat and crew were excellent and the overall experience was one to be remembered. We will be back :)
