Fishing Trips Brighton

Sea Fishing Trips from Brighton Marina

If you’re new to fishing or the most experienced of angler Brighton Diver can cater for all. Fully certified and fully insured, you can be sure of a great day.

Ground Fishing Trips Brighton

It is recommended that those new to a rod, reel and line get to know their tools in a more controlled environment, where the boat is stationary at anchor. The depth is probably no more than 35m so the tide is less, so less weight is required.

You then fish on the seabed, which is generally broken rough ground or reef. Catches will include whiting, dogfish, ray, tope, spurdog, smoothhound and perhaps conger. Over winter, cod are also fished for in this way.

From £65 pp

Wreck Fishing Trips Brighton

For the more energetic and experienced angler, a day’s fishing in the many war wrecks off the South Coast promises catches of fine pollack, cod, ling and conger.

The former are usually taken when drifting across a wreck trailing artificial lures, whilst conger fishing entails anchoring up-tide of the wreck and fishing into it with baits. Tackle loss can be quite high whilst drifting, but the rewards can be much greater.

Baits & Tackle

During the summer months, plenty of mackerel can be caught for bait on feathers outside of the Marina, before venturing further off to the fishing grounds. This can be supplemented by frozen squid and lugworm purchased in the Tackle Box on the quay, just above the boat’s berth in the Marina. Sometimes cuttlefish is available. Best artificial baits for pollack and cod are usually red gills and perks, although different lures may produce good results. Experiment!

Brighton Diver does have the provision to hire out fishing tackle, please contact me for further information. If you're looking for the best place to purchase tackle, why not visit our sponsors Daiwa Sports.
