Mackerel Report 21/07/2016
We have seen an improvement in the number of mackerel caught on our charters this week so things are looking more positive for the start of our busy mackerel trip season on Monday 25th. On todays mackerel trip in the Solent (21st July) the fishing was again rather patchy but we stuck at it and finished with 46 mackerel caught so not too bad but hopefully next week will be better.

What a difference a day can make, for the first time this year there were shoals of mackerel breaking the surface today both in the Solent and around the Needles, it's great to see them here at last and now we just need them to stay around for the next 7 weeks.
Cheers.
Greg.
**********************************
Fishing from Keyhaven in Hampshire aboard Osprey II with Greg these trips are great fun for everyone, no matter how old or young you are everyone enjoys a Mackerel Trip. Mackerel trips are perfect for complete beginners, individuals, family groups, workmates or anyone wanting some fish for the barbecue, smoker or freezer and of course the kids really enjoy the excitement of catching their first Mackerel. You don't have to fish if you don't want to, some people just come along to enjoy the boat ride taking in the sights & sounds of the Solent and Needles area. We fish for the Mackerel in the waters of the Solent between Hurst Castle and Yarmouth or around the Needles Lighthouse, depending on weather and tide conditions. We like to take our time on our Mackerel fishing trips therefore our trips have always been an hour longer than most at 3 hours in duration, this makes for a more relaxing experience and gives us more time to find you as many fish as we can if they happen to be a little scarce on the day. Also sometimes the tides are not ideal for fishing in the Solent so if the weather is being kind to us a 3 hour trip gives us plenty of time to take you all the way out to fish around the famous Needles Lighthouse. Our Mackerel trips get very busy during the school summer holidays so it's advisable to book well in advance for trips at this time.
If you prefer, why not private charter the boat just for your own group of friends & family then we can arrange the trip around your preferences whether they are mackerel fishing, sightseeing or a bit of both. Private charters can be arranged for any available day during the Mackerel season, phone us to check availability.
