From our home base at Dunstaffnage marina you have easy access to
many excellent fishing areas and the west coast of Scotland.
You can catch the Pollack and wrasse that inhabit the inshore reefs
to the Giant Skate that hunt the hunt the deep waters around the
isle of Mull.
Many excellent fishing marks are located around the many islands
where you can catch numerous species which include Ling, Conger,
Spurdog, Dogfish, Pollack, Coalfish, Cod, Whiting, Pout, Haddock,
flatfish and various rays at different times of the year.
In our last season fishing for skate we landed and returned over 150
skate that broke the 100 lbs barrier the best skate was 220 lbs on
the scales with many fish over 150 lbs. You will be fishing in
depths of around 450 feet and will be provided with equipment that
will help you land the Giant skate, your fish will be weighed
photographed and returned safely to the depths. It can sometimes
take up to an hour to bring a large skate to the boat but you will
enjoy the struggle.
THE BEST TIMES
The skate fishing is good all year round and is not affected by
climatic change due to the depth of the water, the summer months are
better for the variety and number of different species that can be
caught. Pollack can be taken through to January with some of the
biggest fish taken in December.
