Skipper Luke Aston nd his guests are enjoying the good weather we’ve all been blessed with the last few weeks. After last week’s big game shark hunt, it was back to more prolific, if slightly smaller fish this week. After a couple of weeks when mackerel were scarce – on some days just not there at all – they were back in numbers once the wind swung around to the south.

Back on the mackerel!

Luke says the general fishing has been great with plenty of mixed fish about. Spurdogs were in such numbers that they could be a plague at times, but still provide great sport. Codling were also about too.


Fishing close in to the cliffs also produced some nice wrasse, as well as plenty of pollack and coalfish on the drift.
