    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.

Drop us an email through our contact us page and we'll always try to help.

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!

    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.

    It is mackerel time and and this time of year we start our family fun mackerel fishing trips full on! These 1.5hr trips are long enough to get out and catch some fish but not too long as it can be a challenge being out on a choppy sea for any longer. These trips are great for family and friends to share some quality time aboard a quality boat doing a quality family activity. #familymemoriesmadehere

    It is about this time of year when the main 'run' of sea bream arrive. And what a joy they always are.., plucky fighters and a super fun bite combine to make them a choice catch. We love to see them and this particular fish is a real beauty. Its a male fish and you can tell that by its iridescent blue markings. This angler was well chuffed with his catch and well he should be as it is not only a wonderful fish but a wonderful supper ahead!

All you need to do is wind them in! Oh and light the BBQ :)

    Big Tope Shark on an Epic Fishing trip = NIIICCEE. Tope season or as its known in angling slang, 'toping' is in full swing and anglers are having a ball. Tope are the most aggressive fish we target, hard fishing shock and awe beauties and we love 'em. There is only a couple of weeks of the season left for Tope and its vital that you keep an eye on our social media for sudden upcoming spaces. slots can crop up for a myriad of reasons and despite being fully booked out as I write, I wouldn't be surprised if something became available. www.facebook.com/epicfishintrips & www.instagram.com/epicfishingtrips

    Shocker! We don't always catch fish on an Epic fishing trip. Odd claim you might think? It is very much a fact on some trips we catch no fish and on other trips we catch other species that frequent the wonderful Cardigan Bay, such as this lovely Cuttlefish. We often get asked what is the strangest thing we see caught and its not always an easy question to answer, one mans strange is another's normal; But a Cuttlefish must be right up there in the odd stakes.

    June is Tope time and we are now busy running Tope fishing trips. Its all part of the way Epic runs its business, fish for fish that are in season. Tope season, go Tope fishing.
