    The Government have recently announced the Bass catch and release measures for this year 2019. And its good news for lovers of sea food as for the first time in 3 years you will be able to take a bass home for dinner (minimum size limits applies). To be specific between 1st April 2019 and 31st October 2019 customers of ours will be able to keep one sea bass each day. Epic news! Not only do we get to take home some of the freshest and nicest tasting seafood in the world but we can do so safe in the knowledge that we are fishing a sustainable population of fish. We are the only professional fishing trip company offering a very real chance of catching a beautiful sea bass here on the west coast of Wales. Why not come and have a go?

    Oddly some people like to kiss their catch. No issue here, its up to you. However Luke risked 'life and limb' to cuddle this monster shark. Tope shark season here in Cardigan Bay is always the best time for an Epic Fishing Trip. Generally it coincides with the nicest weather of the summer and pretty much can be nailed down to May and June. So if you fancy kissing (or at least cuddling) a shark this coming summer then we would recommend that you get your trip booked soon, as the best tides and dates are filling. Yup its a true fact that many visiting teams of shark hunters book year on year and well in advance. After all we have only got one 'Legend of New Quay'.

    It's the first day of 2019. Happy New Year! These Epic folk braved 7 degree C water this morning for the annual New Year's Day swim in New Quay Harbour. The team at Epic Fishing Trips were there to cheer a large group of hard core swimmers into and quickly out of the sea. The water is at its coldest now but the good news is that it will warm slowly through spring and into summer to a maximum of around 18 degrees. This all bodes well for lots of fishy fun on our Epic Fishing Trips this year. Season 2019 will start with our first trips on or around mid March departing from the big pier in New Quay Wales. We hope to see you there!

    At this time of year we look forward to hearing from old friends and previous customers who fish with us every year. As is always the case next summer is getting booked up as those in the know bag the best tides and dates. SO now is the time for you to consider getting your fishing charter booked up. We are really pleased to help advise on tides and timings in so far as time of year then May, June and early July generally produce the best weather and some exciting fishing. Around then the tope run big and strong as they hunt mackerel and sea bream. What better way to spend a day than catching bream for the bbq and sharks for the thrill!

    Everybody loves to catch tope. These stunning migratory sharks put up a huge fight and make an impressive catch. Unfortunately the season to catch them here is all too short and really revolves around June. Consequently we get very booked up for shark fishing trips and it is worth pointing out that should you wish to take on one of the UK’s most exciting fishes then it’s time to get a date in our diary.

    Just recently a surprising number of octopus have been found on local beaches. This sits alongside the fact that last summer we caught loads of them. Are we being invaded? One thing is for sure there is more around and they are always a welcome catch. Unlike the Continentals we put them back, they are such amazing creatures and releasing them seems the best way. So will next summer prove the same when it comes to octopus catching? There is only one way to find out – come and have a go!

    The bay was alive with dolphins last week. It is always great to see them – as we do on most of our fishing trips – but they are also a wonderful indicator species. What do we mean by that? Well, if they are here then there must be fish here too. In high summer they can give away the presence of mackerel and it is common for us to drive towards them to try and catch fish. No mackerel at the moment but imagine all those cod that they are munching on now. Shall we go cod fishing?
