St Ives has some of the best fishing grounds in the UK with clear water and masses of mixed species.

Sam Narbett has been fishing in Cornish waters since he was 15 and is a wealth of knowledge and experience on your trip.

We work with and recommend Bluefin Charters who are based in the heart of St Ives, just a short walk from Cohort. They are a highly experienced and fun crew and run 3 different types of fishing trips:

This the most popular fishing trip and a great introduction to deep sea fishing in Cornwall. Common fish caught are Cod, Pollack, Haddock, Ling, Gurnard and John Dory. All equipment is included and the guys will even gut and clean your fish for you at the end of the trip so it’s all ready to be cooked.
