Sometimes the simplest days out can be the most enjoyable. Our big fish days are spent mostly at anchor fishing for the larger species available with slightly heavier gear. This trip is perfect for beginners who need to hire gear and a brilliant way to improve some of your personal bests. Most of what we do on these trips is catch and release so we use circle hooks that are designed to minimise damage to the fish. They are all returned, after a quick photo if need be, to fight another day. Always check with us before picking any of the bigger fish up as most of them have sharp teeth, spines and/or abrasive skin.
