Still no mackerel but inshore ground fishing is ok.

Its nearly June and we have still not caught any mackerel. It appears that the consistently lower water temperatures this year are discouraging the mackerel's movement north through the Irish Sea. Despite the knock on effect of having to use frozen bait instead of fresh mackerel the inshore ground fishing has  been ok. Three trips this last weekend produced plenty of whiting and dogfish with a few dabs.  A few bull huss to 12lb and one thornback weighing about 9lb were caught.

We haven't been to the offshore wrecks for a couple of weeks now but the pollack fishing should be ok and we are hoping that the cod we saw in June last year turn up again this year.

As usual trips with room are listed on the website but if you have any other dates you'd like to book don't hesitate to phone.

The last two places on a two day Isle of Man trip on 30th June-1st July are still available. A great fishing break costing £165 including 1 night B and B.

Below a few pictures of the lads over the last few days.
