* Sorry but we are now fully booked for these trips during the summer weeks*

Departing from Keyhaven in Hampshire and usually fishing in Christchurch Bay or just south of the Needles Lighthouse. This is a special trip aimed mainly at beginners, people on holiday, families or anyone wanting to spend a few hours out in the bay catching a few fish for the barbecue, smoker or freezer. If you don't fancy eating your catch just take a photo of your fish then return it to the sea to fight another day. The 5 hour sea fishing trip is the next step up from mackerel trips giving people the chance to catch some different types of fish without having to stay out on the boat all day. During the Summertime it is possible to catch various species of fish on this trip but the most common are Mackerel, Dogfish, a few Bream and occasionally something bigger like a Tope, a Ray or maybe even a Conger eel can take your bait as you can see in the photos below. During the winter months the main species caught are Whiting, Dogfish, Pout and there's a good chance of catching a large Cod, Ray or Conger eel too. Other species show up from time to time, so give it a try and see how your luck goes.

Please note: This is not Wreck fishing or Bass fishing, we don't do those.

Also due to bass fishery regulations any bass caught by anglers fishing from a boat or the shore during 2018 must be returned to the water immediately and not taken ashore.

These 5 hour trips for individuals run mainly during the busy weeks of the school summer holidays, for individuals trips at other times please see our 6 hour fishing trip page.

5 hour private boat charters just for your group of friends & family or workmates etc can be booked for any available day including weekends from April to early January. (See our Special offer below)

After you have booked your fishing trip

When you make a booking with us we will confirm the details of the trip and give you a start time for you to be on board the boat at Keyhaven, directions for getting to Keyhaven and where to find the boat when you get there are all on the "Where to find us" page. You will also be asked to phone us at 7.00pm the night before your trip to confirm that the marine weather forecast and sea conditions are suitable for your trip to go ahead, PLEASE REMEMBER TO DO THIS!!! as our trips are fished on the open sea and we have to take notice of the weather forecasts to ensure your safety and enjoyment during the fishing trip.

Our decision on whether or not a trip goes ahead is based on our reading of the latest marine weather forecasts for the strength of the wind, our knowledge of the localised weather conditions and also our years of experience taking people fishing in our local waters, it's not just a matter of whether the sun is shining or not so please remember to phone us to check all is ok. Our aim is to give our customers an enjoyable and above all safe fishing trip so if we are forced to cancel a trip please try to understand that we make the decision with your best interests in mind. If your fishing trip is booked as a birthday present it is always a good idea to have a "plan B" in mind for your day, just in case the weather conditions prevent us from taking you out to sea.
