angler get to do exactly what you want along with personal assistance and
guiding. On Fat Girl we are licensed for 10 passengers and 2 crew, our
fishing trips are limited to 8 passengers and Nawty Girl takes 4 passengers
and 2 crew whilst McFire takes 10 passengers and 2 crew
We are not the cheapest, our aim is to give you the angler a comfortable, quality fishing experience which offers good value for money on a well equipped and comfortable boat.
Although we mostly get fish on our bookings and sometimes some nice big ones and sometimes lots of fish, there is no guarantee of fish, our best efforts are assured at all times. Otherwise we would call it catching and not fishing, the variables are too many.
