Yet another great trip with Pete. The conditions were challenging but as usual Pete worked hard until we found the fish. The coffee was plentiful and hot. Pete was as helpful as always and as well as a days fishing you get all the coaching you want.

See you soon Pete and Thank you once again.

Hi Pete and Carol

We had a really good day, even though conditions weren’t ideal in the afternoon.  We have already booked another trip in October.

Many Thanks

July 6th 2012.

A fine start with lots of good Bass caught early in the day.  John Young catching 12 good fish and my pal Ronnie Kelly catching two good size to take home to Yorkshire.  The afternoon blew a little and after a good soaking lots of Macherel to take home.  Best fish of the day a 6lb + Bass to one of the boys from Coventery.  As alwasy a day to remember. Warm welcome and good Welsh humour, roll on my next trip.

Many thanks Peter and Carol for another excellent and memorable day.

Great day thanks. Peter is a class skipper who got us on the Bass straight away and continued to do so until the bad weather came in.  I fell to the sea sickness, but will certainly try it again, if the forecast is calmer.  Thanks again for a great day.

Just a big thank you for the trip on Wednesday 6th June.  We really enjoyed it and you worked so hard to find us fish.  The weather and conditions were against us, but you still managed to put us on the fish.

Many Thanks

Hi Carol and Peter.  We had a wonderful time, thank you.  It was made all the more enjoyable by Pete`s hosting.  The family enjoyed themselves and we even ate our Pollock on the BBQ last night beautiful.  We have frozen the dabs for another time.  We all agreed that we would visit again soon.

Dear Peter.

Many thanks for a fabulous day on the Panther.  Your banter and welcome from the outset made our trip (the first of a few) a fantastic experience.  It is evident that your knowledge of the fishing grounds is second to none and the attention to every detail of our trip mad the whole experience one we will remember always.  All the boys in school today wanted me to convey their gratitude and we are all itching to organise another trip

Many Thanks

Phil and the boys

Hi Peter

I hope you are well.  I thought I’d just get in touch following the cracking trip out we had with you last week.  Everybody now knows what I’ve know for a while, if you want to catch a lot of Bass, get on Panther with Peter Nicholas.  It was probably the best day’s Bass fishing I’ve ever had and it wasn’t just the fishing that was good.  The boat is fast and comfortable and your hard work in finding us the fish and keeping us topped up with coffee made it a special day.  As you probably gathered we will be booking a trip or two with you again soon.

Thanks for the lovely photo.  I am sure George will be very chuffed especially if it makes it up to the website.  We barbecued the fish the next day and they were delicious.  We did have a good day last week despite the conditions.  I know Peter was frustrated that he couldn’t do more for us especially in the morning, but when the tide turned we did have some fish and the latter part of the day was quite productive.  I am an experienced fisherman who has been on a number of charter boats and I know that Peter made the best of what could have been an almost complete wash out.  The water was exceptionally coloured from all the water coming down the rivers and with wind over tide it did get quite bumpy.  Once again the met office had failed to accurately forecast the correct winds.  I was very pleased at how well George coped on his first charter trip, better than some older passengers, including his Grandfather and that he had a few fish.  I am sure we will be back next year.

Thanks Tim

Reply from Peter

Thanks for the appreciation.  I was very impressed with the amount of effort young George put into his fishing.  I can honestly say he never let the rod out of his hand all day.  I have often seen youngsters out fish more experienced fishermen and it is encouraging to see young enthusiastic anglers enjoying fishing.

Well Done George!


Thanks 4 the great day on the Bass, pity about the swell but you made it worth while. Skimpy, Bingo and Davey Dike were well please with their Bass and the spot you put us on. We will be with you again soon.

Cheers Peter

The Nantyglo Scroungers have been going out with Peter for 2 years and we have never failed to catch any Bass, Peter is the best of the best skippers.  Nothing is too much trouble for him, plenty of laughter and plenty of tea and coffee, but most of all plenty of fish.  Looking forward to our next trip and yes, we know we will have plenty of Bass, Bream, Mackerel and Tope.

See you soon Peter from all the boys.


Hello Peter,

I would like to thank you and all concerned for looking after Kieron and myself for the day out on your boat.  It was a pleasure to mix with some lovely people who were more than happy to help us with the fishing side of things.  You and your son Grant and the Scarlets boys plus actor Julian Lewis Jones were more than helpful in setting us up to get fishing.  I would like to add that if anyone is thinking of having a day out to try the fishing game, go on the Panther Charter boat for the knowledge of these boys are next to one.

Once again thanks for looking after us

Hi Peter, just to say thanks you for an awesome day on Monday.  I really enjoyed myself and was well chuffed to catch the biggest fish.  Everyone made me feel so welcome and involved.  The Scarlets were great and Phil John gave me loads of tips for when I go fishing.  My granddad cooked the Bass I caught and it was lush.  Once again thanks for helping to organise the trip, I know it was difficult to get it arranged because the Scarlets were busy training but it was an experience well worth waiting for.

Thanks Keiron James


Just letting fellow anglers know that Peter Nicholas is one of the best charter skippers around.  First went out with Peter in April when Peter claims it was the quiet part of the season, what a day, 9 species.  After fishing Newport, Cardiff and Swansea for the last 20 years fishing from Burry Port with Peter has been an eye opener. Had four trips with Peter this year and every one has been fantastic.  Peter is a genuine guy, loves his fishing is very helpful, makes fantastic (Kenco Costa Rican coffee) cannot wait till our next trip.

We had a very enjoyable day and are hoping to book more dates soon,
