Whether you are an individual or a group looking to book the whole boat, I will work hard to give you the best trip possible. I am always happy for you to contact me if you have any questions about the trip or to discuss what we are catching, so please do not hesitate to call or email.
About the Skipper:
I have been fishing the shores of Weymouth and Chesil Beach since the age of 6. I am passionate about all types of angling and at the age of 17 bought my first boat, an 18' angling pleasure craft mooring it in West Bay harbour giving me the opportunity to combine my two keen interests.
After many years of fishing from my own boat as well as the Weymouth Charter Fleet I was given the opportunity by Chris Caines to become a qualified charter skipper and own and run my own boat and business. I look forward to welcoming you on board Al's Spirit so that you can share my enthusiasm and passion for your sport.

The mussel beds are still producing a few Plaice and the Shambles Bank is always a good bet for a chance of a good Turbot.
