Our Shark Fishing trips are strictly tag and release, providing data for Universities
The Porbeagle shark is the UK apex predator and is on the tick list for all shark anglers. North Cornwall is one of if not the best stretch of coastline in the UK. Bluefin Charters supply and use top of the range quantum Cabo gear. We only take three anglers max to ensure the best experience for Porbeagle Shark fishing.
In 2017 we caught one of the biggest porbeagles in the UK at an estimated weight of over 400lb but didn’t bring it aboard to measure as it was a pregnant female, so we released it alongside the boat.
If you are lucky, you may even catch a thresher shark. We had two in 2016 and now one of a very few boats in the UK that have landed three of our four species, so just the Mako to go.
Get in touch with Sam the skipper for more information on Shark Fishing and how to book.
