Our fully guided Catfishing tours include all tackle and bait, with no hidden extra costs.
If you choose to book your guided catfishing tours with Al Henderson and Martin Fawcett you will benefit from the following services:
• Fully equipped charter boat
A fully customised boat that has been modified for locating, hooking and landing very large catfish. These boats are extremely stable 17 / 18 foot Skiffs fitted with 50 / 60HP Honda 4 stroke outboard motors with electric start and tilt features. These engines provide first rate performance and reliability and allow us great mobility during the course of a day. Our boats are also fitted with top of the range echo sounders and Minn Kota electric trolling motors for boat positioning whilst drifting. The boats will comfortably accommodate the guide and up to 3 anglers.
• All Catfishing tackle is supplied by us
We use specialist rods combined with Multiplier reels. All our equipment has been tried and tested over 15 full seasons of guided fishing and will not let you down. We have custom made weighing slings and 240 lb Reubon Heaton scales which will allow you to accurately weigh a 200 lb+ fish.
• Catfishing bait is provided by us within the price of the holiday
You will not have to worry about extra bait costs! We will use the type of bait that we feel will offer you the best chances of success dependent upon the river conditions.
• Unparalleled experience and local knowledge
Over the years we have located the prime areas that appeal to Catfish under differing river conditions and at different times of the year. We can give you access to miles of river that the bank angler would never find, or be able to fish. You could waste hours fishing in the wrong areas, but we will put you straight onto the hotspots, and our boats will get you there quickly!
• High quality digital cameras to photograph your capture
We can email the pictures to you after your holiday is over.
Everyone knows there is more to fishing than just catching fish. You will benefit from a friendly, professional service and our own brand of relaxed hospitality. Sit back, relax, enjoy the sunshine and take in the beautiful surroundings as we strive to find that monster Catfish for you.
A typical day on the river will start late morning and we will fish on into the evening, the total duration on the river being around 8 hours. Our service is all inclusive and we are with you all day offering advice and guidance. All you need to remember to bring is sun cream, sun hats, sunglasses, insect repellent and plenty of water.
