Welcome to Mersea Fishing Trips
this site has been set up to try and show you the many assets mersea has to offer for the experienced or inexperienced fisherman. my name is stuart and i run the 'razorbill' just one of the boats 5 charter boats that work from mersea.the boat is moored at west mersea which is located approximately 10 miles south of colchester and it generally only takes 20minutes to get to the a12 at the most. we are lucky at mersea to be able to provide free parking and most of the time gain access to a walk on walk off facility in the shape of a large floating pontoon and very little tidal restrictions.
We have an all year round fishery here and thanks to the Thames estuary's many sand banks and the blackwater estuary in which we are situated we can get out in most weather conditions. the 'razorbill 3' is fitted out with all of the latest safety and navigational equipment and run by myself Stuart belbin and i am a fully qualified skipper going right back to the 1980's. the boat is licensed and insured to carry up to 10 passengers and two crew although i try to keep maximum parties of 8 for your comfort. i can take out people either on the basis of hiring the whole boat when as few as one person can hire the whole boat to themselves or they can pay an individual price and go out with another group of individuals. we also have many people book the whole boat as a group outing. due to the size and smaller running costs of our boats compared to others we can charge less for the hire of the whole boat so it is more affordable for a small party. although for parties of over 8 they are welcome to hire both my boat and the 'galloper' which is a simular boat run by my son scott allowing for parties of up to 16. the other bonus of only taking 6 or 8 rather than 10 or 12 is that the skipper only has 6 or 8 anglers to worry about rather than 12 so each angler should be given more attention which will hopefully help them to enjoy there trip. feel free to browse my site and i hope to hear from you soon.
