When the opportunity arose, he ‘snapped up’ Snapper, an Offshore 32, which he worked for two years before purchasing and refitting a Blyth catamaran and now his powerglide 42 the biggest charter boat in weymouth.

this season has seen an influx of sharks into the area. with plenty showing up to steal plaice and bream off our lines. we decided to see if we could catch one. we weren't disappointed. we've now boated plenty of sharks up to the 150lb mark we hope to continue sharking until the end of October and potentially November. we have invested in all the top quality gear required to catch land and release these powerful sharks.
