Easter weekend - went down to Cornwall for a break and decided to have a day's sea fishing on Sunday. I went out with Dave on Bessie Vee; what a good skipper he is. He couldn't do enough for all on board and did not stop working to make sure we all had a good day. On the way out we stopped to feather up some mackerel for bait, then we had a few fish on the drift, but when the tide had dropped off he put the pin down, then ling up to 25lb were coming aboard at a good rate. What a good day's fishing I had.
Thanks Deb for taking my booking and to you Dave for being such a good skipper. Can't wait to do it all again.

Fantastic 4 hour trip in last week of October 2014. Dave was the perfect skipper, and his knowledge helped to ensure everyone got to be part of a great haul of whiting, ling, a couple of gurnards and a conger. Great intro to fishing for my son. Thanks Dave and Deb

Great mornings fishing - some really big Ling 20lbs plus conger, dogfish and assorted others. We had a great time and Dave is a great help for the less experienced, loved it and would recommend to all. We'll be back next time

Thanks Dave for a great couple of days last weekend. We enjoyed the sport with the ling and conger on light gear and had plenty of other bits and bobs to keep our freezers topped up. Ling eat superb. Good relaxing fun (with aching arms). Top job again Dave, we'll see you next year (from the East Northants crew).

My wife booked me an 8 hour fishing trip on the Bessie vee whilst we were holidaying in Cornwall this August.
I have had very limited sea fishing experience so I was really excited.
When I arrived on the day the weather was warm and there were 5 of us on the boat plus the skipper , Dave .
The other 4 on the boat with me were all well seasoned sea fishermen and all very helpful.
The skipper was a lovely chap and very knowledgeable when it came to boats and fishing.
Through the advice of the skipper( Dave ) I managed to catch plenty and had cod on the barbie for quite a few days.
I thought the day was fantastic and dave was always willing to help and advise and I love boats myself , especially those with a bit of poke , which the Bessie Vee definitely has .
Great value for money and you even have a tea boy on board!
Cheers Dave . I had a great day and will be back next year for a few trips.

My girlfriend and myself had a wonderful 4 hour fishing trip on board Bessie Vee, the boat itself was spacious and very accommodating and Dave the skipper was always on hand to assist if needed, plenty of fish were caught and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bessie Vee Charters to anybody wanting a good days fishing, once again thanks Dave we both thoroughly enjoyed it and maybe we will see you again next year.

just had my usual time down in Cornwall and had 5 days fishing with Dave, as usual he took us to where the fish were and never stops working to ensure people enjoy there selves. I caught plenty of Whiting, Pollack and Conger eels with a couple of ling thrown in as well. Already got another couple of days booked for September and cannot wait see you soon Dave.

I would really like to say a massive thank you to Dave for making our trip truly memorable.... My dad's lads holiday every yr was to go fishing from Mevagissey this has been a tradition since 1975! He had booked this yrs holiday on Bessie Vee as he had done for approx last 5yrs sadly he passed away... But I was asked to stand in his place which was unheard of before! A woman on board? I was pretty much bricking it shall we say.... Dave helped me in so many ways with little pointers here and there the occasional roll of the eyes (which can I say I can't blame him!) the 4day trip was truly amazing and one I shall never forget..... Many fish were caught mike won the cup for biggest congar, the most congar shield was a 3way share with Alan, Jamie and Ange...... The best species was awarded to myself for the 35lb ling and cod caught by me..... Next yr is already booked! Never thought I would spend a holiday FISHING? But I have to say its up there for one of the best holidays I have had in a long time.... Thank you Dave it was totally AWSOME.

By: James Scott Left On: 11 July 2014

Fished july 8th and 9th and had results both days biggest ling 26, biggest conger 46. Everyone caught congers. Dave made the day easy, constantly keeping bait ready and moving the boat when things slowed which kept a bend in the rod for most of the day. Decent tea and coffee and a powerful boat.
Thanks will be organising another trip asap.

By: Roger Hemming Left On: 01 June 2014
