Sunday 23rd April - Had a brilliant day out of Mevagissey on Bessie Vee today. 2 of the Locker lads had driven through the night from Whitby in North Yorkshire so the stakes were high. The conditions were perfect, just a little breeze and stunning sunshine. Skipper Dave was friendly and good company from the moment we stepped aboard. 45 min steam to first wreck. First drop "BAM" 8lbish ling. Well that was a good start. We had fish steadily after that until the very last drop. Dave worked hard to keep us on the best fishing areas, repositioning as the tide and wind turned throughout the day. Best ling aboard was just over 20lb with several others in the doubles, towards the last 2 hours of the day we had a crazy 30 minutes where I had a 42lb eel immediately followed 10 mins later by a 56lber. Meanwhile at the same time another guy aboard landing a 45lber. Between the three Locker lads we had 20+ good fish over the day. We will definitely be back and highly recommended the vessel to anyone wanting to get afloat.

Frid 4th Nov - my friend and I booked a trip out with Dave on the Bessie Vee. We met up at 8am at the harbour,loaded our gear onto the boat. Then we made our way out to the wreck which took about one and a half hours. Once the anchor went down,we were soon catching some nice congers and ling for about a couple of hours. Then the weather turned against us sooner than expected, giving the skipper no choice but to up anchor and take us in closer for shelter - me thinking our fishing was done for the day. How wrong I was - we were soon into some nice congers, which never seemed to stop coming, with Paul taking fish at 30+40 and 50lb. My catch of the day was a fishing rod and reel that was expertly brought up from the sea bed, which had been there for some time. The day was brought to an end with the skipper catching the fish of the day a conger of 60lb. Dave thankyou very much for a really good day and all the good trips I have had with you this year. I will recommend you to anyone. Thanks Bernard

Having never fished at a sea for some 30 years, being treated to a day on Bessie Vee by my son-in-law was initially approached with a certain amount trepidation. It needn't have, Dave operated with a relaxed confident manner and provided support and advice that ensured a very enjoyable day's fishing. If I'd been told at the beginning of the day that I'd land a hatful of fish, including a 28lb Ling, I'd have never believed it.

Thanks for a most enjoyable fishing experience Dave, and of course my son-in-law for arranging it.

We had a great trip on the Bessie Vee with Dave yesterday. As a couple of sea fishing novices, I caught 7 Conger the biggest 2 being mid 30's and my father in law caught a couple of Ling the biggest being 27lb, a few conger and also a Pouting. Dave was really patient with us throughout and ensured we had a good trip. I will be out again next time I am in this neck of the woods. Thanks for an enjoyable day.

Had a great day with Dave and managed a new p.b shark at 93lb I can thoroughly recommend a trip with Dave and the Bessie Vee

Second time of fishing on the Bessie Vee with Dave. Great skipper never disappoints. We caught loads of fish, whiting, pouting, mackerel, scad, dogfish, coalie, conga and a porbeagle shark. We all loved it thanks very much for a great half day out. Definitely be booking another trip!!! We were really grateful to him for still taking us out after some people failed to turn up without giving him the courtesy of a telephone call. Great job Dave thanks again :-) From Julie, Colin, Nicola & Chris.

Best days fishing ever for me, my son and my 13 year old grandson. Dave took us to a mark to top up on fresh mackerel and when we had enough he took us to a mark about 30 miles offshore where we stayed for the duration. There was none of this "OK get your lines in and we will try somewhere else" every 30 minutes. Dave knew where to take us and where there would be an abundance of fish and he was spot on. I can't remember the last time my arms ached so much with all the conger and ling that I puled up. I even caught my 1st shark. The next time I take a holiday from Barnsley to ANYWHERE in the south west I will be paying a visit to Mevagissey to sample another day on the 'Bessie Vee'. Many thanks Dave for a brilliant day

Had my first trip on the Bessie vee with Dave , we were a party of five and we had 10 blue sharks on board along with whiting and mackerel, Dave was a great skipper and very patient with us especially with the ladies who were a little sea sick . Thanks for a great day and hope to do it again next year.

really glad my son and friends all caught sharks on their day out with you - made his day and he made it on your web site.

For the 2nd time this year we experienced the expertise and skills that Dave has to offer, we set off heading 22 miles out to a ww2 submarine that has never failed to deliver. After setting anchor it wasn’t 10 minutes before the first cod came aboard followed by another which was half missing thanks to a greedy blue shark. Dave set his shark rig and waited, 15 minutes later Steve had the fight of his life, stripping line with gusto. Finally it was aboard and what a fish a quick photo then back to the depths. With conger and ling aplenty we had a stunning trip. After a quick pint in the Harbour Tavern we headed home. We have already booked the next trip, so once again thanks to Dave & Deb for another stunning day.

Brilliant morning of fishing with Dave last Wednesday. We were a large party (11) including four kids 14 and under. Dave was patient with us all, especially the kids, we're all beginners, and we all caught loads of Whiting and Mackerel. Congers were also caught and my daughter was very proud of her shark(dogfish)! Thanks for a great experience!

Started fishing with Dave back in August 2015. I have now done 5 weeks holiday down in Cornwall, and have booked as many trips as Dave and Deb could get me on during my time in Cornwall. The weather sometimes stops the trip but when Dave can get out fishing he tries his hardest and uses his vast knowledge and seamanship to get you over some quality fish. I have had countless congers up to 70lb, Ling up to 35lb and Shark up to 45lb. I have spent time and money in the last year and every minute and penny has been worth it, and I would willingly spend it all over again! Anyone who knows me knows I do not part with my time and cash easily. Thank you once again Deb for your administration skills and Dave your fishing and friendship. P.S. Dave, tell the other Bernard thanks for letting me join his trip.

Amy & I both had a fantastic day out wreck fishing, the banter between the crew was almost as entertaining as the fishing! We both caught on our trip, & thanks to Dave, I got to catch a bonus Blue shark, couldn't be happier, we'll see you again next year.

By: Dave Tudor Left On: 13 August 2016

Fantastic day wrecking yesterday, thank you Dave and Bessie Vee for a memorable trip and the PB Conger. Hope to see the photo soon. Cannot recommend Dave enough and will be in touch to organise a shark trip later this year.
