UPDATE !!! TRIPS ARE BACK ON !!!!
From june the 1st 2020 government restorations are being easied allowing me to some sort of operation.
basically i can have 5 anglers onboard plus me if you are from the same house hold you class as one unit so could possibly have more than 5 on one trip. As far as costing the individual cost will be a bit more for obvious reasons but it will be worth it plenty of space plenty of fish and keeping safe.
There will be a few changes onboard to suit the Covid 19 situation and to keep you and me as safe a possible.
No hot drinks will be provided to avoid cross contamination feel free to bring a flask,
No one is to enter the wheel house at any time whilst onboard only me keeping me and you safe,
Whilst onboard maintain 2 meters at all times from everyone onboard,
Do not touch other peoples belonging or equipment stick to your own,
Please bring personal PPE equipment if you can and use it along with wipes and sanitiser,
Regular cleaning of boat and equipment throughout the day,
If you need to use the onboard toilet you will have to clean it after use to avoid and cross contamination,
Please respect other peoples personal space we all want to have a safe enjoyable experience,
being at sea in my view is a safe environment plenty of outdoor fresh sea air a lot safer than them crowded supermarkets and parks are anyway,
If you are showing symptoms you should let me know strait way, do not come aboard you must follow government guidelines.
The bit i have to say is "You accept that contracting COVID 19 is a real risk and that the skipper/owner will not be held responsible if you contract the virus you accept this by stepping onboard and do so at your own risk"
Not that any one can prove where they caught it but i have to make it clear and protect my self at all times.
Also whilst in the marina please respect the other boat owners keep your distance and don't touch other people things some are self isolating on site.
Back to the fun bit the fishing
We are at the peak of the season now and the fishing is on fire loads of Bass out there had several around 5lb this week and very good numbers too on the lures. The Hounds are good sport biggest so far for me this year is 19lb so lets see who can beat me. Still loads Skate/Rays in the deep water if you want them, Been reports of big Tope this week 50lb I'm doing a few trips for them next week so keep a look out also the mackerel should be here too. Its good all round at the moment got a few wrecking and plaice trips next month will report then, The inshore fishing in the crouch has been the best seen in a while here high numbers of skate bass and hounds throughout the river even the shore anglers are having it off. so even on them windy days we can still get on the fish and get afloat. Its finally time to get out and enjoy that weather and fantastic fishing that we have been waiting for. iv got day trips, evening trips, bass trips tope trips night trips and 24hour trips coming up going to hopefully be a busy one.
