It’s five years since we first ventured out into the North Atlantic, initially from Oban to Orkney, and then from Orkney to Shetland. It was to some extent a gamble and a trip into the unknown. The reason we took the step ,was simply because the sea fishing available in other areas was on the decline and we wanted to get among some big fish in Scottish waters.
We 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 will also after consultation with anglers move of wrecks if too many Ling are coming aboard.
We hope you can join us for some fantastic fishing out from Cullivoe and we aim to preserve the excellent sport for the future
We are also fishing through the winter and will be targeting the UK Cod record, for further details Call John Keggie on 073120958 79
