    May brings blue skies and great fishing. At last summer seems to be arriving and consequently, we always look forward to this month. With the sea temperature steadily rising, things (i.e. fish) are on the move and the fishing can be amazing. Any day now the Mackerel will turn up and by the end of May we will be concentrating on fishing for them but for now we are largely bait fishing for the monsters of the deep. Look at the pleasure on this young mans face! He's caught a monster ssshhaaark!

    Here's a thing, we regularly catch monster crabs whilst on our fishing trips. Especially at this time of year as this is the time for running our famous 'reef and bait' trips. The name says it all. We cruise out to one of our secret reefs and drop baited hooks down to the sea bed. And we never know what is going to come up, that is the excitement of fishing at this time of year. The #whatsitgoingtobe question. This weekend its the first May bank holiday, we can't wait; can you?

    Big mouth! Yes we know, which one is the skipper :) This is a fun picture, and fun is what we try to have whilst on an epic fishing trip. For sure, we can knuckle down and fish hard when needs be but we do always try to make our fishing trips a fun experience. We are holding a big bull huss in this picture. They are always a wrestle and really are an impressive fish (shark!) to catch. Happy customer here.

    What a great Easter week we had. With largely calm seas and even some fleeting glimpses of the sun, much fishing fun was had by all. Our fishing customers had a ball and holiday memories were made by all. Look at this young lady, so proud of her monster spider crab catch. We think that shell remember this for ever and that is the beauty of being epic! Great memories

    Bull Huss on the boat! This has got to be a moment of a lifetime for this young lad. Never to be forgotten and we think that's exactly what happens on one of our fishing trips... lifetime memories made here. Children these days have their lives filled with many things but most are swiftly forgotten.. catching a shark like this will never be forgotten!

    It will not be long now until this happens again. We can not wait! Until the mackerel appear we will be dropping bait down to the sea bed and chasing the many fish species of Cardigan Bay. During early season the choice eating fish is the Whiting and the Codling and we catch loads of them. Fancy a chance of your own caught Cod and chips for tea..? Well you now know where to come!

    We are blessed with some of the most prolific Bull Huss filled waters in the UK. These sharks - yup they are true sharks - are huge fun to catch (and even more fun to wrestle with once caught. They are possible to catch all summer long but its spring that is the peak of it. We will be chasing these - and Codling, whiting, coalfish etc., from late March. Easily and commonly caught on our 2hr bait fishing trips, its truly worth considering them a target species.

    Any guesses who the guy is and what the fish is.. We'll help you out. The fish is GT or Giant Trevally and yup that is a young skipper Tim. We thought we'd make the point that Tim is an angler through and through, always has been and always will be. And that is what you get with Epic. Years of experience and expertise shared to all, every trip, every day all season long. If you are going to fly, fly with someone who know what they are doing. And if you are going to fish...

    Its fast approaching the end of our fishing season. Firstly may we pass on our sincere thanks to all of our customers of this year. We have loved having you all aboard Legend of New Quay fishing with us. What a total pleasure its been. We will of course look forward to welcoming you back next year. Trips will start again as of late March/early April and will be available online very soon. Thank you one and all :)

    Have you ever eaten a whiting? If not then you should really make it a must do. They are a lovely eating fish and particularly so here in Cardigan bay where they run big and fat and full of flavour. There is a commercial prawn fishery here that runs all winter long and guess what the whiting like to feed on? So much so that the locals here refer to the whiting having a pink sheen to their flesh...now I wonder why that is! Come out with us next spring when the whiting are feeding and catch your own. You will not be disappointed.

    Its a perfectly fair criticism of Epic that we do always catch big fish for customers. We don't and we are perfectly happy to admit that. Lets face it, the sea is full of fish of all shapes and sizes and we are always going to catch a mixed bag. It is worth remembering that for some folk even a small fish is a great catch. If you have never caught a shark before, such as this Gent, then a small shark is still a whoop whoop moment. So if you fancy your own whoop whoop moment then why not come and catch a small fish... just make it one you have never caught before!

    As the sun rises over New Quay the sun is beginning to set on our epic fishing trips for another season. Our first thought is a huge shout out thanks to all that joined us this season. If you missed us then don't worry we will be back next year. And there may well be a last minute trip that you can jump on through late Sept and October. Drop us an email through our contact us page and we'll always try to help.

    We can not believe that its the beginning of September... where did all of the summer holiday weeks disappear to? We hope you managed to join us on one of our fab 1.5hr Epic Fishing Trips but if you didn't grab an opportunity, well fear not there is still plenty of time to do so. Trips keep going all through September. Just get yourself sorted and booked online. Hope to see you soon..

    Don't you just love a happy catch pic? We marvel at the fun things that happen whilst out on our now famous Epic fishing trips. One never knows just what is going to go on and we suppose that this is absolutely the fun of fishing. The change during any particular day can be amazing to behold. One trip is busy for fish, the next quieter. One trip catches a surprise catch - say a Cod or a Bass and the next trip fills buckets full of mackerel. Always different but always fun. No wonder that we use the catch phrase (excuse the pun) 'fun filled fishing for all the family'.

    Happiness is a mackerel! Fancying a smile... come catch a mackerel today and make yourself happy. We don't know why but catching mackerel is a hugely fun thing to do!

  • (Image 1 of 1)

    And the Mackerel keep coming. Young or just young at hear there are always fish to be caught on one of our epic fishing trips. This is the place in New Quay to make family memories. We all remember going mackerel fishing as kids, its just one of those activities that we remember.

    Who would have believed it.. a beautiful sea bream on an Epic Fishing Trip! Now that is a bonus catch for this Gent. We love to see sea bream coming up and its becoming an increasingly frequent occurrence which is good news for everyone (except the sea bream!) These fish make great eating and for sure, there is always a happy customer when one show up. Why not come and try your luck at catching one. Just ask the skipper for a couple of tips and you never know, it might be pan fried fillet of bream for tea!

    We often get asked whether we catch any other sorts of fish as well as Mackerel. Well, the answer to this is a resounding Yes. When drift fishing with lures - which is what we do all summer long - you can catch all sorts of fish. Just like this beautiful Gurnard in the picture. There are no vegetarian fish in these waters and as they are all predators they will all take lures; from Bass to Cod, Mackerel to Garfish we've caught them all. If you fancy trying for something else other than a Mackerel, please ask us and we will advice you how to change your fishing technique.
