mackerel trip

Mackerel fishing in St Ives is a must-do whether you are looking for a family-friendly activity or catching your dinner.

St Ives has been a mackerel hot spot for years and the summer months are by far the best for line-caught mackerel. With an experienced Skipper, deckhand, and top-of-the-range rods and reels, Bluefin Charters ensures that you’ll get the most out of sea fishing, no matter your skill level. We’ll also unhook all the fish so there is no risk of hooks in hands.

In the Bay, you are likely to catch several different fish such as Cod, John Dory, Red Gurnard, Scad, Pilchards and Haddock.

Our trip is only 1 hour and 30 minutes, as you don’t have to travel too far, you’ll usually be fishing within 5 minutes.
We take no more than 10 passengers a trip, ensuring a better experience with fewer tangles.
