Our mackerel trips are enormous fun, especially for beginners and kids.  The excitement of reeling in a line full of mackerel is priceless and will stay with them for years to come.  Many of our ‘serious’ anglers started off fishing mackerel with us.

The skipper and crew are very patient with children; their aim is to see the everyone happy and catching lots of fish.  This applies to adults too!  There’s no need to worry about never having been boat fishing; our fish-wise friendly team will be on hand with tips and advice and in no time you will be hooked.

Everyone gets to keep what they catch.

Had an absolutely brilliant day as usual on this charter. Extremely friendly and helpful skipper, took us straight to the mackerel and continued to catch 6 or 7 every single cast in. Highly, highly recommend!

Was out mackerel fishing yesterday evening. Fabulous. Connor was great and especially with the youngest wee lad. Patience of a saint. Still rocking a bit this morning mind you. Great evening and loads of mackerel caught. Thanks Connor for teaching me to fillet.

I had a great day out fishing with my two kids. It was the highlight of their holiday.
