Re: Coopers Beach Boat Trips



Thank you all for the advice etc. The … e_Rod.html was superb. I could cast 70yds with a 3oz lead and also feel little nibbles close in.

I caught mullet, kahwai, snapper and even a stingray the size of a dustbin lid with it, just a shame the kingfish broke me off! A tip though would be get a heavier duty reel than the 200yd/8lb one i took, as you’ll need some cranking power, far more than I expected, in even shallow water.

As for the boat fishing…. my dad recommened this chap as being a good skipper….

He wasn’t wrong.

Rick looks after you from the first minute to the last. He takes the safety briefing seriously, but with a bit of humour, understands the local waters perfectly and has a very good eye for seeing which anglers need more attention and which ones just need a supply of bait.

I had two trips with Rick and on both occasions he looked after me, safely, professionally and best of all, left me alone as soon as (or am I being big-headed Rick?!) he realised that I could handle an overhead reel!

If you want a boat trip, I doubt if you’ll find a better boat and skipper. This from someone who has fished Cuba, the English Channel and the Maldives. – Yes, this chap is as good as the rest of the world can offer.

Tight lines,
