Charter Boat: Yellowfin

Yellowfin is a fast, spacious and stable boat that can easily reach the mid channel wrecks and further afield. The Sussex coast offers rich and varied fishing to sea anglers, there are literally hundreds of productive wrecks to fish for Cod, Pollack, Ling, Bass and Conger to name just a few.

Drift the sandbanks for Turbot, Brill, Blonde and Undulate Rays (all rays are released), or do some ‘inshore’ fishing for Plaice, Cod, Tope, Smooth-hound, Mackerel and Bream.

So far, 41 species of fish have been caught on Yellowfin, just take a look at our photo gallery.

About the Skipper

My passion for fishing started aged 5, sitting on the banks of the river seven with my dad and grandad and then in my teens progressing to sea fishing. In 1993 I got my own boat and began fishing out of Newhaven and even crewed for a local charter boat for a time.

Whenever I get a chance, I still love to fish and usually book a trip or two on a boat when on holiday. Owning my own boat and taking people out to fish, is for me my dream job, I never fail to get a buzz from giving people a good day out fishing or seeing someone catch their personal best.

It’s a pleasure for me to help those that are new to fishing or to guide and teach the next generation of anglers.
