What a fantastic time we have just had shore fishing in The Gambia !
It is rare these days to say that you have had the pleasure of meeting a True Gentleman but in Bernard we surely did, A very professional set up with all the knowledge that his years of fishing brings , nothing was to much trouble from knot tying to finding the fish ,Our day was capped off by Chris catching the fish of a lifetime a “VERY” large Guitar Fish that he has not stopped showing the pictures of to anyone who cared to look.

Bless, Rod , Judi ,Chris & Dawda.

Thank you to Bernard for a fantastic day shore fishing in the Gambia and for sharing the wealth of experience. We had a brilliant day and nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Hope you had a good Birthday Bernard. We can’t wait to return and book another trip. Regards Mike, Julie and Tyler

We’ve been fortunate to fish with Bernard on each occasion that we have been to The Gambia. If you enjoy a great day out, with good company, superb fishing on some of the most unspoilt and deserted beaches you’ll ever find then I suggest you give Bernard a call. Its even a great trip for a non angler, can’t wait to go back next year. Cheers Mark & Elaine

Great Day Thank You we loved it – were not experienced at fishing even fishing from the beach but Bernard was so patient and explaned what to do, picked us up and brought all the equpiment and a sandwich – put the bait on cast the rod all we had to do was catch the fish – butterfish / ladyfish / guitarfish / catfish brilliant and we even took some home for tea. This is a great experience even for the inexperienced like us and a quality day for the practised fisherman. Also Mike and Barbara who were with us helped make it a day to remember – you must do it if only once in your life but we will be back !

2nd week February 2015
Bernard collected us from our hotel 9.30. Took us to a remote beach nice bit of off road driving included. I was the complete novis and ended up catching more fish than my friend mark who was experienced.
drinks sandwiches also included, we caught
Catfish!,Cassava, white snapper, Bernard landed a belter
Got back to the hotel around 5.00 the chef cooked our fish.
learnt a lot, would highly recommend fishthegambia with bernards pleasant manner and wealth of knowledge
We found the day really enjoyable and Good value all round..

Bernard, Did his best for us, even though the fishing was hard. The water temp was too high. We were a large group and he catered for us well. A shame i missed the last day as i and a couple of others a bit crook. We will be back and will be with Bernard and crew next time. Always picked us up on time totally reliable,,,, Thank you…

Gary Gittins says:

Just another thank you to Bernard for some great days fishing and in particular in the way he assisted in the organisation of the 2nd Gambian International Boat Fishing competition. Well done Bernard!!

Dave says:

A BIG THANK YOU to Bernard & Co for taking me out fishing and arranging a Tarpon trip for me. Despite only landing Rays & Cats it was a great couple of days out. Shame the Tarpon didn’t want our Mullet bait’s but at least I saw some big specimen’s (8ft +)roll just alongside the boat. Bernard has a wealth of local knowledge & he’s not to bad a fisherman also & he just loves off road driving when the tides are high lol. If you are out in the Gambia & fancy some fishing you will not go wrong using FISH THE GAMBIA a very good friendly reliable host. Once again thanks for the experience Bernard.

Many thanks for making our holiday in the Gambia such a memorable experience. The days we spent fishing with you were the highlight of our three weeks in the Gambia. Nothing was too much trouble to organise, equipment provided was of a very good standard and your local knowledge helped us catch when others we spoke to were struggling. Hopefully next year we will land the big ones rather than teasing them and taking such a conservation minded approach! For Sonja and Zoe who would never fish outside the Gambia, the locations were stunning providing a chance to enjoy the scenery, a relaxing day on the beach with some fine sandwiches and great company whilst managing to consistently catch larger fish than me! My turn next year hopefully.

ben says:

Paul Bradley says:

Thank you to Bernard for a great day fishing. I was very well looked after , it was a pleasure to spend the day fishing with him. Even though conditions were difficult on the beach near Karting , Bernard got us in the catfish with a couple of guitar fish thrown in. I would highflying recommend a day with Bernard .

Peter says:

My friend Charlie and myself had a fantastic day fishing on the 4th February for his birthday! Bernard took us to an amazing spot along a creek and we where catching all day long! Well I was, unlucky charlie.
Will definitely be using Bernard’s services again when I return in 2019 !

I have been out fishing the beaches with Bernard for about 5 years now every time I come to The Gambia, he is very experienced knowledgeable and professional, I`m a novice but Bernard puts you at ease and helps with everything on your day out. I even took my other half Wendy she didn`t fish but had a great time wondering and sunbathing on the deserted beaches. Nothing is to much trouble for Bernard a real gent well worth a day or two out and about with him, best wishes mate Daryll
