Ray Pitt Sea Fishing - 8,6&5hr General Sea Fishing Trips and 3hr Mackerel Fishing Trips
 
 
 
3 Hour Mackerel Fishing Trips
Last week of May until the end of August (weekdays only)
 
Fishing from Keyhaven in Hampshire 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.
Mackerel trips get very busy during the school summer holidays
so it pays to book early, alternatively if you can, book your trip for June or July
when things are more relaxed.
 We fish for the Mackerel in the waters of the Solent between
depending on weather and tide conditions.
 We like to take our time on our Mackerel fishing trips therefore our trips have always been a little 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.

If you prefer, why not 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 charter sightseeing trips to view the Needles Lighthouse & Alum Bay area
can also be arranged, more details are on our Home page.

Mackerel Situation Update 18th July
The Mackerel this year are still being very reluctant to appear in the numbers that we would normally expect and we have no idea why this is apart from the fact that the sea water is still very "cloudy" in our area and not clear like it should be at this time of year.
It was a slow start to the Mackerel season this year but we were expecting things to be back to normal by now. We are catching a few fish on our trips (Between 10 and 30 per trip on the best tides but very few at other times) and people are still enjoying the boat trip out into the Solent but if you are expecting to catch a large amount of Mackerel then I'm afraid it's just not happening at the moment.
Everything can change very quickly of course and hopefully more Mackerel will show up very soon now especially as the busy Summer holidays are nearly upon us.

Please take this into consideration before you make a booking as I don't like to have disappointed people on my Mackerel trips. If you are happy to book and take the fishing as it comes you'll still get the boat trip out and about in the Solent to enjoy and
I'll do my best to find as many fish as I can for you.
Many thanks
Greg.
