Jolly Roger Fishing – Essex

Based in Holehaven Creek, Canvey Island, Essex the Jolly Roger and her Captain, Jon will take you and your friends safely on a journey up the Thames for a day of boat fishing and fun.

North Star Sea Fishing in Essex

Experienced and regular sea fishermen can bring their own rods and tackle and for the occasional or first time fisherman (or woman) we can supply rods and reels.

Jon will welcome you on board and offer you a nice cup of tea or coffee and discuss the day ahead and advise the time it will take to reach the fishing spot for the day and will entertain you with stories of the fish he caught yesterday so you will have an idea of what species you might catch today.

(by the way – this is written by one of his long standing customers and if Jon was not professional, fun and knowledgeable then I would not be a regular customer, would I?)

Reach your destination, anchor up and time to choose your bait – all bait can be provided with seasonal baits available tailored to the fish species and time of year with worms (lug and rag) usually included in the price of the charter with more expensive baits such as peeler crab available at the time of booking (depending upon seasonal price and availability). Then cast your lines and start fishing and depending upon the time of year you could be hauling in Bass, Smoothound, Skate, Dogfish, Whiting, Codling, Dabs, Pouting and ┬áthe occasional Gurnard.

Finish your day out with a few drinks and a tasty meal at the Lobster Smack pub which is yards away from the boat mooring.
