Lobsters and crab (plus prawns and scallops in season) are the mainstay for the Ceredigion’s commercial fishermen. That leaves plenty more fish in the sea such as tope, bream, skate, bass and mackerel.
Join a fishing trip with Dunbar Castle at New Quay or Epic Fishing, for a choice of trips lasting from 2 hours to 8 hours. Catch mackerel for the barbecue, or crab, sea bass, or even rays, sharks or coger eels!
And there’s plenty of scope for beach casting and shore fishing off one of Ceredigion's beaches where keen anglers are rewarded with a variety of species including sea bass and seabream.
For some great family fun, get some bait and try catching some crabs - why not hae a go at the crab fishing competitions at the Cardigan Bay Seafood Festival at Aberaeron in July, and at Aberystwyth's Sea2Shore Festival in August.
Beware tides! Look out for rock and tide marks and be aware of current tide timetables to avoid being trapped by fast incoming tides.
