just had my usual time down in Cornwall and had 5 days fishing with Dave, as usual he took us to where the fish were and never stops working to ensure people enjoy there selves. I caught plenty of Whiting, Pollack and Conger eels with a couple of ling thrown in as well. Already got another couple of days booked for September and cannot wait see you soon Dave.

I would really like to say a massive thank you to Dave for making our trip truly memorable.... My dad's lads holiday every yr was to go fishing from Mevagissey this has been a tradition since 1975! He had booked this yrs holiday on Bessie Vee as he had done for approx last 5yrs sadly he passed away... But I was asked to stand in his place which was unheard of before! A woman on board? I was pretty much bricking it shall we say.... Dave helped me in so many ways with little pointers here and there the occasional roll of the eyes (which can I say I can't blame him!) the 4day trip was truly amazing and one I shall never forget..... Many fish were caught mike won the cup for biggest congar, the most congar shield was a 3way share with Alan, Jamie and Ange...... The best species was awarded to myself for the 35lb ling and cod caught by me..... Next yr is already booked! Never thought I would spend a holiday FISHING? But I have to say its up there for one of the best holidays I have had in a long time.... Thank you Dave it was totally AWSOME.

Fished july 8th and 9th and had results both days biggest ling 26, biggest conger 46. Everyone caught congers. Dave made the day easy, constantly keeping bait ready and moving the boat when things slowed which kept a bend in the rod for most of the day. Decent tea and coffee and a powerful boat.
Thanks will be organising another trip asap.

Superb afternoon's fishing with a great Skipper and host Dave. My six year old son Jack while struggling a little with a mutliplier had a fantastic time as Dave's ( who was most accomodating ) helper and did manage some mackerel and whiting. Without doubt a very knowledgeable skipper, who wasted little time getting us to a very productive mark. Bearing in mind we were only on a 4 hour trip was lucky enough to catch several conger, pollack and whiting. Jack now has his eye on a shark on a future trip. Great afternoon, thanks.

We had a fantastic 8 hour trip on the 19th of August. We headed straight out for the wreck, on route we spotted a huge sun fish - Dave the skipper said he had never ever seen one that big. Once in position Dave said start fishing - I had never fished like this before, Dave told me how to go on. Within seconds of dropping my line in a fish took the bait, I landed a rather large coley - that was just the start, I was soon pulling up pollack.
What a fantastic day it was,made even better by Dave's sense of humour.
Thanks Dave, for a very memorable day - hope to go out again next year.

On behalf of our club The Hunting Lodge Sea Anglers, Ivybridge. I would like to thank Dave for a splendid trip out on Monday 26th September.
After ½ hours mackerel bashing for live bate we steamed out to the first mark for 2 hours drifting for Pollack, then at slack water we anchored up and the fun really began, with conger and ling aplenty. Then back on the drift for more Pollack. Back to port, pint in the Sharksfin then home. Happy Days…
We will without doubt be booking again.
Thanks again Dave.

Went out on a 4 hour trip with my son. On a neap tide, was a mill pond over the wreck I caught a decent conger . Had to swap positions with my son so that he could feel some-thing on the hook. Thanks Dave loved your knowledge and your dry sense of humor.

By: Tom Cullen Left On: 23 August 2013

Went out 3 weeks ago and was great - caught one pollock drifting the wreck and caught loads of ling and conger. At one point we were fishing on the first wreck and and Dave brought out a shark rod. Within minutes there was a 45lbs blue thrashing around the boat,it was great. I'm only twelve and he said to me 'Next time, you're bringing it in.' Guess what ,I ended up hooking a 100lbs + thresher shark - it nearly pulled me out of the boat. Great day and great fishing. Thanks Dave! Best fishing trip ever!!!!!!!!!!

Shark fishing full day 8th August 2013-absolutely brilliant trip we travelled 15 miles out and our 13 year old son Sean caught a blue shark in less than an 1 hour this was followed by constant Mackeral,whiting,garfish,gurnard dog fish and more all day then low and behold two more blue sharks-Dave & Kyle knew exactly what they was doing bringing live sharks on board with our two children close by in fact touching and holding them for photos and videos-highest recommendation will defiantly book again thanks to all on the Bessie Vee.
