Deep Sea Fishing

Deep Sea FishingBoats go daily from Kilmore Quay for Deep Sea Fishing and may be booked a day in advance. This picturesque village of Kilmore Quay is one of the most highly developed sea angling centres in Ireland. A number of licenced purpose built charter boats operate on a daily basis from the marina. The inshore boat fishing has built up a truly deserved international reputation. All the marks from the Barrels, Brandies and Bores to the Conningbeg Rock afford great opportunities with a multitude of species including blue shark. Shore fishing in the area also offers exciting prospects and fishing from the piers will produce wrasse, flounder, mullet and bass. East of the marina is a rock formation known as St. Patricks Bridge which can produce bass, sea trout and wrasse to specimen size. Forlorn Point to the west also produces good shore fishing for bass.

Sea Angling

Sea angling is an exciting sport for both the beginner and the experienced angler. Numerous wrecks off the east and southwest Wexford coastline also add variety to this sport. Boat fishing competitions in recent years have seen up to 30 species coming to the scales; Conger, Ling, Pollock and Cod are some of the more common species caught. All the charter boats listed are fully insured and registered. Most have tackle for hire and welcome children and newcomers to the sport. Pleasure and sightseeing charters are also popular, with dolphins, seals and rare bird species to be observed.
