Sea Angling < Back
Sea angling with an experienced skipper on a custom-built fishing boat is the safest and most rewarding way to enjoy this sport.
Carrigaholt Sea Angling, led by skipper Luke Aston, offers great fishing trips on its charter boat The Clare Dragoon. We also offer accommodation in our guesthouse – Glencarrig, specialising in fish and stay packages.
Alternatively, take some time out to go on a “Fishing Adventure” on the Lady Gwen 11 with skipper Seán Maguire. Seán caters for the novice and the experienced angler, groups and individuals, and family’s are welcome. Rods and reels are provided but you can bring your own lucky rod if you wish.
When weather permits, the waters at the edge of the peninsula supply some of the best fishing in Europe. Anglers have caught more than 20 different species in one day’s fishing there, and some crews have landed up to 500 kilos of whitefish in a single trip. These include cod, pollock, saithe, ling, haddock, whiting, hake, spurdog, ray, and of course mackerel, which in turn can be used as bait for blue shark and big skate, among others.
