Great Fishing Grounds Just off Hornsea

Whatever your angling interests there will be something for you. As well as the fish you would expect to find it is a little known fact that the Bridlington Bay area is Europe's largest Lobster fishery. Brown Crab is also plentiful. Leisure boaters are allowed to pot for both Crab and Lobster under strict fishery limits on the amount that may be taken. Please contact us for further details or see the notices in the boat yard. 

If your interest is wildlife spotting or photography the sea off Hornsea is teeming with other wildlife. We have Porpoise, Basking Shark, Minke Whales, Seals and numerous Seabirds.

Tope are seasonal visitors to Hornsea and provide exciting fishing. However they need to be handled with care and respect and always must be returned to the sea undamaged. For the best advice on how to fish for and handle them we have Tope fishing experts on hand to make sure you get the best out of your trip and the fish stay healthy.
