Charter Boat: Blue Shark
Boat and Skipper Details
Blue Shark operates from St. Justinians which is a small harbour in Ramsey sound where the St. Davids Lifeboat station is located. It is ideally situated to take full advantage of the great fishing grounds around the islands of Ramsey, Skomer, Skokholm, Grassholm the Bishops and Clarks and the reefs and sand banks of St. Brides bay. It is also a good departure point for the numerous off shore wrecks of the Irish Sea.
We mainly run the shorter trips during the weekdays leaving the weekends free for the longer charters, please check our calendar for availability, or drop us a quick email if you have a trip or date in mind.
We also run three hour trips out to the Bishops and Clarks in search of hard diving Pollock wrasse and other reef species. The larger pollock out on these reefs regularly getting up to 10lbs and great sport on light tackle.
Bass fishing is available on 4 hour or 6 hour trips dependent on the the right size of tides.
(Please note that as of 1st Jan - 30th of June all Bass caught have to be returned alive and from then on, a one Bass per angler bag limit applies.)
The 8 hour trips are a mixture of drifting or fishing at anchor for the many different species the area has to offer and dependent on the size of tides and the season as to what type of fishing these trips will consist of, please contact the skipper for further details.
For the off shore wrecks of the Irish sea a full 10 hour day is needed to take full advantage of the abundance of these deep water fish hot spots. These wrecks mainly dating back to the 1st and 2nd world war offer shelter for Cod Ling and some monster Pollock. There is most defiantly a new welsh record Pollock lurking on one of these wrecks of the deep!
Due to the depth of these wrecks mostly between 70m - 110m they can only be fished on the smaller neep tides, please contact the skipper for the best dates for these trips.
Padrig is a keen angler himself and comes from a family of sea farers whom have all worked the north Pembrokeshire waters for many years. As a child spending his holidays on a fishing boat with his dad and then on to the Passenger boats around Ramsey island he developed his love of fishing and the local waters. He started crewing the passenger trips at 19 and skippering at 23 which he has been doing on and off for the last 18 years, along with skippering survey vessel for the offshore renewable and oil and gas industry.
The Blue Shark is also run by two local fishermen whom also have a keen passion for the sport and also being former Ramsey Island boatmen know the area very well, so you can be rest assured you are always in safe and capable hands of skippers and crews who will do there upmost to get you on the fish!

Had a great trip with Padrig and his crew. He is eager to help every level of angler and is very knowledgable on sea faring ways. We caught mackerel for bait and then went on to catch lots of Pollock with the occasional bonus of a few sea bass. Always moving to put the fisherman on the fish. Highly recommended. Can not wait for our next trip.
