3 trips in the last month all brilliant days, with an excellent skipper Dave, which made for very enjoyable days and plenty of fish, and very well assisted by his efficient wife Deb.
Looking forward to more days in the future.

Thanks again Malcolm.

Dear Dave and Deb,

Just wanted to say many thanks for a really enjoyable trip and for all your usual hard work and attention to detail, both in respect of tracking down the fish and also keeping everything on the boat running smoothly.

A great day with many aching arms from so many ling and conger.

Good job and thanks again,

I have just returned home after a fantastic holiday in Cornwall. It would not have been completed without my two fishing trips out on the Bessie Vee. Dave the Skipper did his usual best to find us the fish, he again was very successful in doing this. I even managed to get on Dave's hall of fame pictures for 2016 with my 17lb Pollack the biggest one landed on the boat this year. Don't take my word for Dave's skills give it a try you won't be disappointed. Thanks Dave for another memorable trip. Hope to be back later this year for another trip. Keep up the good work. Your not a bad thing boy.

After my successful trips in 2015 August and September I talked my mate Chris O'brien to come to sample the fishing on Bessie Vee. First 2 days weather was challenging but still caught some fish, Chris coped with his sea sickness well. On the Sunday weather improved and so did the fishing had 3 congas 30lb and 2 50lbs plus ling and small congas. Dave did not stop working all day everyday to find us the best wreck to fish despite the weather conditions. Chris found his sea legs by the end of the week and finished on a flurry with congas and ling. I lost another good conga half way up just to put me in a good mood for the 6 hour drive home. If you book a trip with Dave you might even be lucky enough to meet Basher! Thanks Deb and Dave

Top fishing trip. Dave the skipper very good at finding fish and very good with my girlfriend Kirsty on her first boat fishing trip. We caught lots of big pollack and Kirsty also caught two ling. Managed to successfully transport my fish back to Aberdeen and will be eating fish for months!
Fantastic trip can't recommend enough. Thank you Dave for a great day out fishing.

Monday 16th May - me and my friend went out with Dave on Bessie Vee for a day's wreck fishing. What a good day we had - the first two wrecks we had a few fish, then Dave steamed out to the next wreck, and when the call came for us to drop our lures down bang we where all into pollock. We all had plenty of fish to take home. Thanks, Dave for a good day - can't wait for June to do it all again - BASHER

Down in Mevagissey for 2 weeks holiday. Was lucky to get 2 trips out on the Bessie Vee . Owner and skipper Dave is a top man and a top skipper. Nothing too much trouble, very patient . He knows the best fishing marks and when to go to them. Had 2 days fantastic fishing, and definitely the best charter boat I have been on. Will be back, even coming all the way from Aberdeen

Super day afloat on Bessie Vee for our annual family competition day. Cod, Pollack, Ling and Conger - Dave knows his marks, and more than willing to help anglers of all ability. Bags of space on deck and a very comfortable ride. We will be back!

Just returned from another week down at Cornwall; did 4 trips with Dave on the Bessie Vee. Just like my other trips in August the fishing and the skippering was superb, I had shark, Conger, Pollock, Cod and Ling. There should be more people like Dave on this planet. P.S. Dave, thank the local boys for the money its come in handy lol! Barry

Just returned from our Club's annual long weekend in Mevagissey. As usual Dave did us proud, 2 terrific days fishing, plenty of shark on Day 1 and loads of conger and ling on Day 2, including a new Club record ling of 29.5lb.
Everyone asked me to send you their thanks Dave, and let you know that you have our vote for the best skipper in Cornwall. Can't wait for next year's trip.

Had a fantastic day out with bessie vee and Dave on monday.would reccomend to anyone who needs a very good day out with a (obviously) very highly skilled man doing what he does best.will be back next time.

When the girls decided to go to Greece for a week, I thought that I would go down to Cornwall to try for a Conga Eel. I was a bit apprehensive but I had nothing to worry about, from the moment that I stepped on Bessie Vee I knew I was in for something special. After 40 years of fishing, fresh water and sea I can say that, that was one of the best fishing experiences I have had. Ended up doing 4 days with Dave, had Congas to 50lb Ling to 23lb, all on sporting tackle, which there was plenty on the boat. I can not recommended Dave enough that man knows his wreck fishing and his shark fishing, top man! Barry

Went on a sharking trip on the 31st July, Excellent day out, completely got the fishing bug again now after a long break. Will be booking another trip next time I'm down in Cornwall and bringing my lad when he's big enough!

By: tom barrett Left On: 08 August 2015

Great day out with catching the most fish i have had on a boat before, and then I went out on another trip just days later to catch a 47 lb conger that is on the website. The skipper Dave made it a great days fishing for all on the boat.
