5 Hours

Half-day trips are perfect for those who want a decent amount of fishing time, the chance of some really good fish, but for whatever reason can’t stretch to full day.


Half ay fishing trips in Cornwall on the Blue Pointer

We could fish for mixed species and have been catching anything from Cod to Haddock, the odd Bass, Gurnards and all of the other inshore species that you are likely to see, or we could fish the nearer wrecks for Pollack and Cod.  Really its up to you to decide how much you want to gamble and how hard you want to work.


You will be advised by Dan on what’s looking good given the tide, the weather, the crew’s interests and recent catches. If the wrecks have been fishing well recently, we may do a bit of Codding or Pollacking.  If you would prefer something more varied and easier-going , we will probably go inshore. If you want an almost guaranteed blood-bath, we will go for a Whiting and Mackerel-fest on the Falmouth wrecks!


The rule of thumb with shorter fishing trips is to keep it comfortable and keep it productive .But if you would like to fish for bass and don’t have the time to do a full day, there is nothing stopping us going after them. Half days have turned up Bass to 9lb, ling to 28lb, cod to 17lb and pollack to just over 22lb!

Why Are We The Best?

If we are not the best charter outfit around, we want to know why!

Unlike some ports, Helford Village and Helford Passage don't have a huge amount of passing trade so we have to be good. We have great fishing and very sheltered waters meaning we get out more than most boats in Cornwall and fish in very good conditions only.

We think the reason people come back time and time again is not because we always fill the boat with enormous fish, but because of the way we run the boat and the business.

  • All bookings are confirmed in writing and can be receipted
  • We don't promise trips that we can't fulfill only to cancel in the morning we were supposed to go
  • We almost always call the weather the night before
  • We return ALL calls and emails promptly, whether we can help or not
  • We never short change anyone on time
  • Gear losses and fuel burned always come second to catching fish and having a good day
  • We take the business seriously but the fishing is always relaxed

"We can't control the fish or the weather but we can do our best to get the rest right"
