    Report on-board Razorbill 3

    christmass 2008 got off to a great start.on the 22nd we pushed a little further offshore as the weather was fine and the tides were rite.we saw action from the start and there was a great stamp of fish coming aboard.we only saw 4 cod under 5lbs all day and the majority were in the 7-10lb range.we saw a couple of doubles and the biggest went 18lb 1oz to tom.there are still plenty of bigger fish about and will be for a while aswell as the odd roker we saw two today.there may be a few spurs about as the year gets underway,hopefully we will see some decent ones like last year when we were lucky enough to get one of 21lb.we still have a few spaces so get in touch to book a day up.

    Report on-board Duke IV

    Good Cod fishing at the moment with fish up to 10lb along with Thornback Rays to 12lb. Expect some big Cod from now that will be following the Spratts, we have had a good run of Whiting this winter and they should stay around for a while yet. We should get some large Spurdogs around the new year and Thornbacks arrive in numbers in January. Dont forget the spring Cod run, should be good from February through to April. You wont catch anything sat at home surfing the web so come on down there's space available!

    3 hour mackerel fishing trips from portrush
    Mackerel are found in great numbers in northern irish waters in the summer months.

    We take out hundreds of people boat angling from portrush harbour each summer.

    We start catching mackerel in late april and were still catching them in late September and some of them are huge!

    They can be caught on feather lures and they even take whole fish bait when we are fishing for bass as the picture shows!

    They are related to tuna fish, so large ones will give a really strong fight!

    Mackerel are very tasty to eat and also make good bait for larger species such as cod, pollock or sea bass.

    The british record for a Mackerel is 6lb 2oz which was caught in 1984, at over 6lb thats one large fish! The biggest we have ever caught was over 2lb.

    these are super fishing trips to take beginners and children out on. the excitement of hitting a line full of mackerel is priceless and will stay with them for years to come.

    many of our now 'serious' anglers started fishing mackerel with us, seems they caught the fishing bug!


    a 3 hour mackerel fishing trip onto the Portrush or Portstewart sandbanks, including the rod and reel hire, all tackle and bait is £15.00 for adults and £10.00 for children (up to 16).

    all fishing tuition and guidance is gladly given free of charge.
