Get Going – 4 Ways to join a fishing trip
1. One Hour Trips
Nick runs one hour mackerel fishing trips from the Cobb Harbour in Lyme Regis several times a day and it is best to call him first to be sure of a seat. Please call his mobile on 0797 479 6002.
If your a bit of a chancer then you could just head down to the Cobb at Lyme Regis and ask for Nick. His boat the Kraken is moored in the harbour and you may find him nby the harbourmasters building.
You can sight see while we cruise or fish for mackerel or just sit back and relax and take in the wonderful sea air.
