Fishing from Cullivoe in Shetland on Yell Rebel

If you want to experience the best Cod & Ling fishing available in the UK then give me a call and try Shetland. I first started charter angling in Cullivoe Shetland in 2010. Year after year we have landed huge cod with the present best at 46 lbs. In 2017 i took a year out to get to grips with the big game fishing in La Gomera, Canaries but now i am back with my new vessel. The new vessel is coded to area 2 and licenced for 12 anglers.

Every season we catch large numbers of Cod over 30 lbs. Coalfish to 30 lbs. Ling to over 40 lbs with the best at 62 lbs. We can scale down the tackle and catch good plaice. We have caught many Turbot to over 30 lbs. Common Skate and thornbacks also come aboard regularly.

I have limited dates available in 2018 in May/June/August and September please check my calendar from this page or give me a call on 07793120958 and i will be happy to discuss the fishing and accommodation that is available.

Having fished with an aquastar 43, a Rodman 12.50 and a southboat cat i wanted to get a vessel that would sit low in the water to avoid drifting to fast in the Shetland wind & tide. I also wanted to be close to the water as gaffing fish constantly for 6 to 8 hours can be very hard work. The new boat is an Aquabell 33 workboat built by Goodchild marine. she is coded for 12 but as i limmet numbers in Shetland to 8 max and often 6 she i ideal. With a cruise speed of 15 knots we will be on the grounds in less than 40 minutes from leaving our harbour.

In 2016 we started to anchor over slack water in deep holes and found cod to 46 lbs and ling to 48 lbs. less than 500 metres from shore!

If you want to catch a 30 lbs cod and ling on the wrecks to 40 lbs plus then you must try Shetland.
