Fish N Trips
Our boat fishing trips offer an exciting activity that’s suitable for all. We offer individual bookings or private charter trips. From family days, corporate team building and educational trips to birthday treats, hen and stag parties – fishing is a fantastic way to get out on the water, have fun and learn more about the local marine environment.
The main target is mackerel, however, we catch lots of different species throughout the year. After catching enough mackerel and bait for yourselves, we make for one of the reefs or wrecks in the area, where we hope to catch other species, such as herring, whiting, gurnard, cod, dog fish, even pollock, pouting, ling and the infamous conger eel!
All equipment and safety gear is provided on board so you don’t need to bring a thing, simply dress for the weather!
After your day’s fishing, why not relax and have your catch prepared and cooked for you at The Boathouse Cafe, situated on the quayside.
