You do not handle any bait, we use feather lures that look like small bait fish to mackerel, three hooks per rod, you will often catch three mackerel at a time !
Mackerel tend to gather in the same areas, and over many years the skipper has become familiar with the “hotspots”, also to enhance our chances we carry the latest electronic fish detecting equipment, trechnology that allows the skipper to “see the fish”. As we drive along ask the skipper for a demo !. The skipper can also contact other local fishermen via mobile phone or VHF radio.
Between 10 -25 metres.
No problem – this is the easiest fishing you wil ever do, you will recieve one – to – one tuition.

For your cars GPS the postcodes are as follows, Butts Field SA70 7LT and the Multi Storey is SA70 8AQ. Tenby’s Tourist information Center phone number is 01834 842402.
When the tide is out of the Harbour, we use a mobile jetty on the castle beach ( same as used by the Caldey Island boats ).
Yes, by prior arrangement, we can take your family / party on a “personal charter” where you can opt to fish, swim around a secluded island beach and barbeque your mackerel on board, all while taking in the stunning scenery and wildlife, i.e Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbil, Cormorants, Gannets and Seals. A childrens favourite is examining the contents of the skippers lobster pot ! – Please contact John for more details of this increasingly popular trip.
