Boat name: Jean-K Port: Whitby, North York­shire

Sa­man­tha Jack­son’s ex­pe­ri­ences as a first-time an­gler prompted her to nom­i­nate Whitby skip­per Kevin Mars­den as our award win­ner.

“This was my first time fish­ing, Kevin knew this and kept a close eye on me, as well as the rest of the peo­ple on the boat,” said Sa­man­tha, from Cant­ley, South Yorks.

“If any­one’s lines got tan­gled, he would help straight away. He would tell us ex­actly when to drop the lines, and if none of us caught any­thing for a few min­utes or so, he would find a bet­ter spot if ev­ery­one agreed on the move.

“When I caught a cod, I strug­gled to reel it in. My part­ner helped me, and Kevin was there with the net. I see Kevin as a great skip­per. I would have no hes­i­ta­tion to fish with him again and rec­om­mend him to any­one.”

Kevin’s boat, Jean-K, is billed as the best value-for-money sea fish­ing char­ter in Whitby, with his web­site of­fer­ing a price of £47 a per­son for a 10-hour trip. Jean-K has plenty of room for 12 an­glers, and has a 60-mile Code of Prac­tice cer­tifi­cate.
