Additional Description:

Channel warrior is a full time angling boat owned and skippered by myself and operates right through the year. She has been taking anglers safely to sea for the last 20 years, and for many more years to come. She has a new cat. 430 hp engine and cruises at 12 to 14 knots. Because this is my main source of income you can be sure I will give you the best day possible so that you the angler will want to come back time after time, my living depends on it.
In Lyme Bay there are hundreds of reefs,rough grounds and wrecks and some of the reefs are now no go areas for trawlers and these areas have now started to fish very well indeed. Lyme bay will fish any state of the tide with the exception of the biggest of springs and the the smallest of neaps which can prove challenging but not imposable. Starting in 2014 I will be giving a £40 gift voucher from a well known tackle supplier for the best fish, at the end of every month, or a free trip the winner chooses which.
1 hour mackerel fishing £10 (any age)
3 to 4 hour trips. Ideal for the novice, to provide an in-site into boat fishing, enabling you to decide whether it is for you or not. The price includes rod, tackle and bait with all the help and encouragement you need (seasoned anglers also welcomed on this one) £25 per person

    We booked six spaces with Steve . The sea conditions were perfect, flat calm and warm. Steve never stops trying to find the fish and we moved several times during the day. We had a fun day out and caught Congers, Rays, Doggies , mackerel and Plaice . The Pollack and Cod didn`t oblige, but there was a lot of may rot about, which doesn`t help the fishing. Steve always works hard for his anglers and his co owner Al is also very helpful. All in all a top skipper, which is why we have several trips per year aboard Channel Warrior.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Pete it is appreciated you guys make a hard day much more enjoyable
