Running regular sea fishing trips from Poole,
Piscary is a fast modern well equipped and very roomy for her size Cougar cat, well placed on Poole quay it's just a short ride down the harbour, with the Isle of Wight to the east and perbeck hills to the west, Poole Bay is one of the most sheltered venues around.
All aspects of sea angling can be catered for in Poole, from floundering in the harbour to mid channel wrecking, sharking for huge porbegles or bagging out on bream you name it we've got it.
Catering for all types of anglers from the crack match man, specimen hunter's and complete beginner's are all welcome, rod hire is avaliable and bait can be supplied by prior arrangement. Although Piscary is licenced for 12 anglers most groups who charter the boat come with 10 people or less and indivduals are always welcome I don't mind if we don't get a boat full as it gives me a chance to get my rod out.
The boat is available for charter or indivduals 7 day a week 364 days a year for any duration from 3hours to a typical 8 hour charter to 10 hour mid channel, evening trip or night trip.Piscary is a fully independent charter boat , can not be booked through any booking agent or middle man and can only be booked through the owner Skipper Matt Rowe.Please check out the website www.piscary.co.UK
