The fishing continues to be fantastic and in the last week since 1st August we have had 6 huge Turbot to 22 lbs, Coalfish to 29 lbs and a fantastic Plaice at 6 lbs for Dave pictured above.
The 2015 season has seen some fantastic catches and huge fish, recent catches have included the following, Ling to 63 lbs, Cod to 42 lbs, Coalfish to 29 lbs and Turbot to 23 lbs.
July has continued to fish well with recent catches including a few nice Haddock to 8 lbs.
Dave Wilson and his crew had some fantastic sport at the weekend and on one drift over a wreck had five ling all over 40 lbs with the best at 48 lbs
August has seen the return of good Turbot with two big flats at 22lbs for Richard Hooper's group on the 5th and another one at 14 lbs today.
Its not too late to get a trip booked in so give us a call and we will try and sort something out.
If you have a trip booked or are planning a trip please be aware that we are managing the amount of fish taken and this will only be for personal consumption. Each angler will be limited to the amount of fish taken. We want you to enjoy your trip, however recent events by a few groups have led to problems for all and we intend to manage catches and the fish taken carefully.

We have now added a new purpose built catamaran to the vessels that we will have available fishing from Cullivoe.The new boat TRIO 111 can easily fish up to 12 although we seldom fish more than 8, with a 5.2 metre wide deck and walk around cabin.
This new vessel is fast with a cruising speed of 17 knots and very stable with long range capability, new wrecks and the deep waters of the continental shelf are now within range. New marks and new species will be targeted.
Oberon can now proudly claim to have put Scottish Sea angling back at the forefront of Angling in the UK and we would also claim we can give Norway a good run in the Cod fishing stakes any day. We now hold the Scottish record for Turbot at over 31 lbs, Torsk at over 17 lbs and Coalfish at over 32 lbs. We regularly land and return Cod at over 30 lbs and have had ling every season at over 50 lbs. Add in, Haddock to 10 lbs and Hake at 22 lbs and you start to get a picture that Shetland is the place for big fish. This is true, but it is also the venue for large catches. We are happy for anglers to take home sufficient Cod Fillets for the table and for personal consumption ,however we will not allow fish to be taken or killed indiscriminately. We operate a policy of returning Cod from the shallower marks when we believe we have enough on board.
We hope you can join us for some fantastic fishing out from Cullivoe and we aim to preserve the excellent sport for the future
