Best days fishing ever for me, my son and my 13 year old grandson. Dave took us to a mark to top up on fresh mackerel and when we had enough he took us to a mark about 30 miles offshore where we stayed for the duration. There was none of this "OK get your lines in and we will try somewhere else" every 30 minutes. Dave knew where to take us and where there would be an abundance of fish and he was spot on. I can't remember the last time my arms ached so much with all the conger and ling that I puled up. I even caught my 1st shark. The next time I take a holiday from Barnsley to ANYWHERE in the south west I will be paying a visit to Mevagissey to sample another day on the 'Bessie Vee'. Many thanks Dave for a brilliant day

Had my first trip on the Bessie vee with Dave , we were a party of five and we had 10 blue sharks on board along with whiting and mackerel, Dave was a great skipper and very patient with us especially with the ladies who were a little sea sick . Thanks for a great day and hope to do it again next year.

really glad my son and friends all caught sharks on their day out with you - made his day and he made it on your web site.

For the 2nd time this year we experienced the expertise and skills that Dave has to offer, we set off heading 22 miles out to a ww2 submarine that has never failed to deliver. After setting anchor it wasn’t 10 minutes before the first cod came aboard followed by another which was half missing thanks to a greedy blue shark. Dave set his shark rig and waited, 15 minutes later Steve had the fight of his life, stripping line with gusto. Finally it was aboard and what a fish a quick photo then back to the depths. With conger and ling aplenty we had a stunning trip. After a quick pint in the Harbour Tavern we headed home. We have already booked the next trip, so once again thanks to Dave & Deb for another stunning day.

Brilliant morning of fishing with Dave last Wednesday. We were a large party (11) including four kids 14 and under. Dave was patient with us all, especially the kids, we're all beginners, and we all caught loads of Whiting and Mackerel. Congers were also caught and my daughter was very proud of her shark(dogfish)! Thanks for a great experience!

Started fishing with Dave back in August 2015. I have now done 5 weeks holiday down in Cornwall, and have booked as many trips as Dave and Deb could get me on during my time in Cornwall. The weather sometimes stops the trip but when Dave can get out fishing he tries his hardest and uses his vast knowledge and seamanship to get you over some quality fish. I have had countless congers up to 70lb, Ling up to 35lb and Shark up to 45lb. I have spent time and money in the last year and every minute and penny has been worth it, and I would willingly spend it all over again! Anyone who knows me knows I do not part with my time and cash easily. Thank you once again Deb for your administration skills and Dave your fishing and friendship. P.S. Dave, tell the other Bernard thanks for letting me join his trip.

Amy & I both had a fantastic day out wreck fishing, the banter between the crew was almost as entertaining as the fishing! We both caught on our trip, & thanks to Dave, I got to catch a bonus Blue shark, couldn't be happier, we'll see you again next year.

Fantastic day wrecking yesterday, thank you Dave and Bessie Vee for a memorable trip and the PB Conger. Hope to see the photo soon. Cannot recommend Dave enough and will be in touch to organise a shark trip later this year.

3 trips in the last month all brilliant days, with an excellent skipper Dave, which made for very enjoyable days and plenty of fish, and very well assisted by his efficient wife Deb.
Looking forward to more days in the future.

Thanks again Malcolm.

Dear Dave and Deb,

Just wanted to say many thanks for a really enjoyable trip and for all your usual hard work and attention to detail, both in respect of tracking down the fish and also keeping everything on the boat running smoothly.

A great day with many aching arms from so many ling and conger.

Good job and thanks again,

I have just returned home after a fantastic holiday in Cornwall. It would not have been completed without my two fishing trips out on the Bessie Vee. Dave the Skipper did his usual best to find us the fish, he again was very successful in doing this. I even managed to get on Dave's hall of fame pictures for 2016 with my 17lb Pollack the biggest one landed on the boat this year. Don't take my word for Dave's skills give it a try you won't be disappointed. Thanks Dave for another memorable trip. Hope to be back later this year for another trip. Keep up the good work. Your not a bad thing boy.

After my successful trips in 2015 August and September I talked my mate Chris O'brien to come to sample the fishing on Bessie Vee. First 2 days weather was challenging but still caught some fish, Chris coped with his sea sickness well. On the Sunday weather improved and so did the fishing had 3 congas 30lb and 2 50lbs plus ling and small congas. Dave did not stop working all day everyday to find us the best wreck to fish despite the weather conditions. Chris found his sea legs by the end of the week and finished on a flurry with congas and ling. I lost another good conga half way up just to put me in a good mood for the 6 hour drive home. If you book a trip with Dave you might even be lucky enough to meet Basher! Thanks Deb and Dave

Top fishing trip. Dave the skipper very good at finding fish and very good with my girlfriend Kirsty on her first boat fishing trip. We caught lots of big pollack and Kirsty also caught two ling. Managed to successfully transport my fish back to Aberdeen and will be eating fish for months!
Fantastic trip can't recommend enough. Thank you Dave for a great day out fishing.

Monday 16th May - me and my friend went out with Dave on Bessie Vee for a day's wreck fishing. What a good day we had - the first two wrecks we had a few fish, then Dave steamed out to the next wreck, and when the call came for us to drop our lures down bang we where all into pollock. We all had plenty of fish to take home. Thanks, Dave for a good day - can't wait for June to do it all again - BASHER
