Charter Boats

How do I choose a fishing charter in the UK? What should I watch for?

Choosing a fishing charter is much like buying a car or making any other major purchase. You need to perform a great deal of research and ask the correct questions if you want to get the most from your experience. I would start by using the internet to locate several potential charter captains for your charter. You need to thoroughly research each of them. Each of them will have a website that outlines their services. You should dig deeper than this however. If you type the name of the charter into your search engine there is a very good chance you will find blogs with comments on your prospective charter captain. It is best in my opinion to choose one with multiple positive feedback ratings and very little in the form of complaints. Once you have narrowed down your list of potential charters you need to call each of them directly. Charter captains each have their own specialty. It is not just a matter of finding a qualified captain but also one who specialized in the type of fishing you wish to perform. A captain who fishing deep sea reefs on a regular basis would not necessarily is the best choice to fish in shallow water areas. It is like picking a restaurant, you do not go to a place specialized in barbeque ribs and order seafood. Tell your prospective captain not only what type of fishing but also the number in your party and their ages. Different boats and crews work better with the correct party size, ages and skill level.
