There are several fishing charter boats in neighbouring Ilfracombe, offering summer mackerel fishing trips, wildlife excursions and deep wreck fishing along the North Devon coastline.
Many are a family run boats which have been run as a family business from Ilfracombe for generations. Where generations ago they would have worked inshore trawlers, in more recent years the families began sharing their knowledge of the local waters with others through the pleasure boat industry.
Ilfracombe sea fishing charters can offer everything from 2 hour inshore mackerel fishing trips to 4hr, 8hr or 10hr rough ground, or wreck fishing trips, usually with all fishing gear supplied. They have trips perfect for first time fishers, families, couple's or for the most seasoned of anglers!
Fishing out of Ilfracombe you can have access to a number of wrecks, fishing for Pollock, Cod, Ling, Bass and Conger. Away from the wrecks, fishing for Conger, Bass, Whiting and Dogfish.
