JSYK - Just so you know

  • (Image 1 of 1)

    Well we did say :) September is the very best month to come Mackerel fishing from New Quay and the biggest mackerel of the season so far, has turned up today. What a beauty! It is always a special moment when a cracking fish like this shows up and this particular moment was all the better, as it was caught by a member of a stag group. An afternoon of BBQ'ing (and no drinking) lay ahead for this team; what a brilliant way to spend an afternoon. So whether you are a family group, a couple, stags & hens or just you on your own, please do come along and give us a go this September. We know it will be Epic!

    September is upon us and we are feeling as Epic as ever! September is the time for fish to feed - hard! With the sea temperature at its warmest right now, all fish species become their most active. The fish geeks amongst you will know that the higher water temperature heralds much higher metabolisms in all things that swim. And that fact brings feeding fish into Cardigan Bay in abundance. Mackerel, Herring, Sea Bass, Sea Bream are all here right now, feeding hard and laying on fat for the winter. September really is a special time to go sea fishing with Epic. So for those that have booked a trip; well done. If you haven't and would like to join the epic party please do jump onto our super modern book now page and grab one of the few places that are left. For bass or bream whole boat charters please email (don't call, we will be out at sea and will not answer) using the email box in our contact us page.

    Hurray the August Bank Holiday week is here! And better still the sun is forecast to shine and the sea stay smooth for the week. What could possibly be better than some holiday fun time, mackerel fishing with the one and only Epic Fishing Trips? There is still a little availability left for trips in the coming week so hit the book now button and get aboard. Look forward to seeing you!

    And the mackerel keep on coming up! Late August is very much mackerel time of year and now is the time to catch some for that holiday BBQ. There is something amazing about a fresh 'caught on the day' mackerel cooked slowly over charcoal. We all know about the BBQ sardine in Spain and Portugal but frankly, a BBQ'd Welsh mackerel is a far better thing. Try it and you will never forget it. Trips are already very full through to the last week of Aug with only a few individual spaces left in week. Our best advice is to think ahead and if you are coming here into the first week of Sept or thereafter; please get booked up now!

    It is the middle of August and it has been full steam ahead running Epic fishing trips everyday throughout the summer.

That is the thing with Epic you will always get quality. Superb modern boat, professional skippering, state of the art fish finding tools and high quality fishing tackle. As the end of the school holidays approaches, now really is the time to get yourselves booked in. Don't miss the boat!

    We are loving running our family friendly fishing trips at the moment. The weather continues to be kind and our customers are happy and having fun in the sunshine and smooth seas, catching fish. In this picture the young lad is proudly showing off a whiting and a mackerel that he has just caught. And you can tell by the smile on his face that he is pleased with his catch! We are often asked what species of fish to we catch? Well you name it and we have caught it; from sharks to squid, from sea bass to salmon and everything in between. Mackerel, herring, whiting, cod and gurnards are the most commonly seen but we just never know what might come up from the depths next. Why not come and give it a go? Maybe you will catch a new species for our capture list, like a tuna perhaps (and we are not joking when we say tuna as they are here)!

With years and years of experience doing this we normally give you the fun trip you deserve. There is £7,500 of fish finding equipment aboard as well - just in case.

    Its always a fantastic time of year when the water clears, the sun shines and the most important of all (: smiley face) the mackerel arrive in numbers. Nothing is ever guaranteed whilst fishing but generally, once they arrive they are here to stay! It started getting busy for them earlier this week and hopefully the tune is now set for a fun summer of mackerel fishing. The first of our July and August family fun trips are available online by hitting the book now button at the top of the page. Nothing wrong with being an 'early bird' and securing your summer holiday trip now. After all we all know that the early bird catches the fish!

    So far we have had a great start to the fishing season with some fantastic memories made for young and old alike! This young lad couldn't believe his luck, not only did he catch this monster huss shark, but he also managed to hold it up for the picture. Smashing stuff! The end of the two-hour trips came and went at the end of May and we are now drift fishing with feathers (small lures) on our fab 1.5hr trips. We have caught mackerel, whiting, codling, pollack, herring, scad, sea bass and gurnards, to name but a few and the season hasn't really got going yet. Our thanks to those of you who have enjoyed a trip out with us already this year and to those that are thinking or better still planning to come out - well now is the time to get yourselves booked aboard an epic fishing trip. The choice dates are already beginning to fill up.

    It is official, the Mackerel are here! We will be starting our famous 1.5hr mackerel fishing trips on Saturday 29th May just in time for the Whitsun holiday week. Many thanks to all of you that have already booked. Good move, as trips are filling up quickly across the whole of that week.

    Trips are now available online until end July. We continue to carry lighter loads (max 8 persons) because of the ongoing Welsh Government 2m social distancing rule. We understand that this might change so we will release August's trips on or around 1st July.

    So, get your holiday family fun fishing trip booked with Epic and sit back in the knowledge that you have a great holiday experience to come. Hope to see you soon.

    Our Epic Fishing Trips are up and running and available online behind the 'Book Now' button right through to the end of June (we'll release July's trips at the end of May and August's at the end of June - this is just in case Covid-19 regulations in Wales change and we can carry more people). Grab your slots whilst you can, with Whit week beginning to sell quickly, now is the time to get your family fun booked up.

    Did you know that Skipper Tim is a member of New Quay Lifeboat crew (in pic, on a rescue)? He's served as a crew member of New Quay Lifeboat for over 15 years now and is proud to be both a Boat Officer and one of the Coxswain team. Not only do you get to go on the most modern, cleanest and most fun fishing trip boat in Wales. You get a time served highly experienced boatman behind the wheel. That's proper.

    We are running fishing trips again! Whoop whoop.. it feels so nice to be taking folk out fishing again. And better still we have been catching some amazing fish including this bus of a Bull Huss Shark which Carol was very game to hold up for the pic. At well over 10lb of angry muscle, a shark like that takes some hanging on to. She returned it #noreleasenoglory and good on her for doing so.

    Online booking is up and running and there is a selection of trips available to grab. Just hit the Book Now button at the top of the page and a world of fun opportunities will open up to you. Remember that unlike others we do not charge a booking commission fee to book an Epic fishing trip. We have 1.5hr, 2hr, 4hr and 9hr trips available online up until end June with limited spaces on the longer ones. July trips will be available from around 1st June and August trips from 1st July.

    Footsteps on New Quay beach mark the route to reopening our Epic fishing trips! Well it makes a nice photo don't you think? So online booking is now up and running for trips. Hurray! There's a selection of trips available to choose from up until end June. We will release more trips for July on 1st June (and a month or so in advance thereafter). We really look forward to welcoming you back aboard Legend of New Quay for an Epic fishing trip.

    We were delighted to welcome Michael Ball and Julian Lewis Jones aboard Legend of New Quay yesterday. We were contracted to get involved with their filming for a forthcoming TV series starring Michael. It was a great day out and it made for an excellent sea trial for the forthcoming season. We are pleased to say that things went brilliantly! We continue to plan to start running trips on 26th April once final Welsh Government permissions are in place. You can now find trips to book online here... Yipppppeeeeee! There is a selection of 2hr deep sea fishing trips available through April and May, later in May the 1.5hr Mackerel fishing trips start and there is a small selection of longer trips through to June. Grab them whilst you can as we will only carry a max 8 persons this year (Covid-19 secure).

    This wonderful scene of New Quay beach was pictured by us this week. It is extraordinary on two levels; firstly there's people here enjoying the beach and secondly it is only March! Let's hope there is more lovely weather to come this summer. We are planning to start running trips as of the 26th April but the Welsh Government continues to be cautious in easing lockdown restrictions. So we are now starting to schedule fishing trips from 26th but will continue to keep our fingers firmly crossed that this is possible. There is also a chance that things might happen earlier (sorry, we are as confused as you are), the 12th April has been mentioned for non essential shops and we commit to letting you guys know as soon as we do. In the meantime please have a look here for available trips. We are nearly there!

    Pic; Legend of New Quay arrives back in New Quay yesterday; despite this exciting step forward we continue to remain 'none the wiser' on when we can start to run trips. Our best guess is that it might be on or around mid-April but there are so many caveats being used by the Welsh Government it is impossible for us to predict the future. So, for now, we must continue to ask for your patience. We know how keen you are to get out on an epic fishing trip and we are ready to get you out fishing as soon as we can. We are proud to take a professional stance in all that we do and this company will not push the envelope. When the time is right, we will be on it; we promise! Because of the continuing Welsh Government led uncertainties we will not open our online booking system yet. We hope you agree that there is no point in taking bookings only to refund them. Let us get this right. Our best Team Epic

    The Welsh Government made their long-awaited announcement on the easing of Lockdown Restrictions yesterday Friday 12th March 2021 and to be frank we remain 'none the wiser' on when we can start to run trips. Our best guess is that it might be on or around 12th April but there are so many caveats being used by the Welsh Government it's impossible for us to predict the future. So, for now, we must continue to ask for your patience. We know how keen you are to get out on an epic fishing trip and we will be ready to get you out and fishing as soon as we are able to do so. We are proud to take a professional stance in all that we do and this company will not push the envelope. When the time is right we will be on it; we promise! Because of the continuing Welsh Government led uncertainties we will not open our online booking system yet. We hope you agree that there is no point in taking bookings only to refund them. Let's get this right. Our best Team Epic

    As we ponder over if and when the Welsh Government will release us from this latest Covid-19 lockdown, we thought we'd share some fishing pics to brighten up our news page. You will recognise these fish as Black Sea Bream. They are a bonny creature, huge fun to catch and a very rewarding eating experience. For us they are one of the tastiest fish that swim in the sea. June through to early September is the time to catch them and given permission we'll be out there taking you to catch them too! Get in touch if you would like to charter us to target these wonderful fish.

    Happy New Year to you all from Team Epic! Let's hope that 2021 will bring good tidings and tight lines. As we write this the whole of the UK is back into a full lockdown again. As the situation progresses we will of course keep you informed here and on our social media sites Facebook and Instagram about the fishing trips we will be able to offer and when. In the meantime have a look at our introductory video here showing Team Epic and our stunning coastline. We hope to see you all in the spring on an epic fishing trip!
