About the Skipper
Adam Shaw has been fishing these waters for 30 years, He has a diverse knowledge of the area and is extremely passionate about sea angling and fish conservation.
“I started fishing commercially off Selsey, fishing for lobster, flatfish and oysters.
At the age of 18 i took my skippers licence and worked a charter boat called Sea Angler 2 from Chichester . I purchased my first angling boat in 1989, Shawthing 1, a cygnus 26 which I kept for 11 years.
I replaced this with Shawthing 11, a 32ft twin engines aqua star and this is my 10th season with her. I have plans to have Shawthing 111 built at some time soon but i have not made the final decision as to which hull I prefer; something around 38/40f,t so that I can provide more comfort to my customers.
Gary has joined forces to help with the skippering duties he fished of selsey for more than 30 years as a crab boat captain, spending some of that time commercial bass fishing,so knows the area extreamly well ,he is also dedicated to helping his crew get the best from their day afloat .
Finally we have olly ,adams son he has just passed his coastal skippers ticket and is stepping in to help out when we are short handed,he has made a promising start with some memorable catches.He is off to maritime colledge in september to train to be an officer in the merchant navy,but hopefully he will be helping out during the summer months.
I have meet a lot of great people during my charter fishing and hope to meet many more. I believe in giving the customer a good value day out, aimed at what their expectations are of the day.It is very important to provide good customer service even on a fishing boat!”
Hope to see you all soon. Adam
