About the Skipper:

I have fished these waters for the past 30 years. I have been a charter skipper for the past 15 years. I am a serious fisherman myself, and pride myself on never having a blank trip. I specialise in bass during the season fishing, mainly with live baits. I also specialise in tope fishing (June/July). Last season having caught tope up to 45 pound. Mixed days of drift fishing, and bottom fishing can be provided. Bottom species that are targeted are skate, bream, pollock, codling, dabs and plaice. On the Ebony May, we cater for all ages, and both novice and serious anglers alike. Our aim is to provide you with an exciting and pleasurable angling experience, with plenty of fish!

This Charter has been listed as Wheelchair Accessible. Contact the Skipper for full details.

    Went out with Stuart on Ebony May, had great day on the Tope. First drop, caught a 31lb, then next had 3 more, up to 35lb. Great to have a skipper of Stu's experience. Great bloke, nothing too much trouble, tea & coffee all day!

    First time out on the happy hooker. We were after Bass but the Bass were not playing or the mackys, the skipper try'ed his best moving from mark to mark. We ended up on the hook and had gurnard and some mackys. In all had great day even if the fishing was hard. Look forward to seeing you next year.

    went for the second time with Alan and he didn't let us down once again! Thanks again Alan! (Joel, Karl and Cameron... The sick one ) ;)

    Had the great pleasure of another great day out bass fishing aboard the Happy Hooker out of Saundersfoot harbour. By rights I should have wrote my first review last year when I first got hooked on the bass fishing off Saundersfoot. Alan the skipper is a great coach and gets obvious pleasure in passing on his knowledge and experience to both novices and more experienced anglers alike. If I could I would go fishing with him every week. I have fished with him about half a dozen times now, always caught, always learnt and always had a good laugh.
