Fishing Boat Charter from Cardiff Bay

One of the most pleasing things about visiting or living in Cardiff as a fisherman is that there is a large variety of manners to enjoy the sport a fishing boat charter being one of them.

Being a major Port on the Bristol Channel means that there is plenty of choice to take a fishing boat charter with three marinas in Cardiff Bay to choose from.

If you want to take a fishing boat charter you are almost certainly going to have a good day out and the chances are you will end up with good catch as well.

The Bristol channel is on of the most tidal regions in the world so taking a fishing boat charter will nearly always bring you a productive day, irrespective of the time of year.

The Bristol Channel is famous for its Cod but you also need to remember that with 3 islands in the Bristol Channel, Steepholm Flatholm and Lundy the variation in habitat and depth mean that Conger, Bass, several Rays, Smoothounds and Tope are also available.

The Cod season starts towards the end of August and continues to mid May.

Optimum fishing is October to January, followed by March and April (spring run) where fish feed up before migrating to the Irish Sea for summer.

Fishing boat charter will probably cost of the order of £50.00 per person, hire of rod and other equipment would cost a little more and of course don’t forget your bait.
