Once everyone is on board, the boat leaves the harbour / ramp and will travel to the sheltered waters between Tenby and Caldey Island. this takes a maximum of 15 minutes (about 1 mile).
On reaching the fishing ground, the engine is stopped and the boat drifts quietly while the skipper gives brief instructions on how we use the rod and reel supplied, often catching fish as we do so (within 20 secs !).
There is no dangerous casting of lines, all lines are lowered into the water to the required depth and then the rod is “jigged” up and down until the unmistakable “bite” is felt.
During all fishing activity the skipper is always on hand to help you with your catch. Once we’re finished fishing, you are provided with string and shown how to string your fish up which is undertaken while the boat returns to the harbour – another great photo opportunity !.
