Species hunting yesterday on Sceptre.
First Haddock of the day, then Flounder, Mackerel, Ling and Cod.
This boy had never caught a fish before, and on this trip he caught ten. He was delighted.
Prime fish being caught in Shetland, leave the car at home and get the ferry up for some great fishing.
We are just a 15 minute walk from the main ferry terminal in Lerwick.
Stunning scenery, huge prime fish and great craic.
All fishing equipment supplied if required.
Advanced booking is essential.
Today's species hunting trip was a huge hit. One of these lads had never caught a fish in his life, and he ended up catching ten, four different species. He was very happy.
The weather has been fantastic up here for fishing. We fish right through until December and the weather will never put us off as we have plenty nooks and crannies to shelter in.
Visit Shetland this year, it really is not that far at all.
Daily ferry departures from Aberdeen allow you to just come up and fish for the weekend if you wish.
No need to take your car, the train stop in Aberdeen is just a five minute walk from the Northlink Ferry terminal, and we are just a 15 minute walk or a £5 taxi ride from the ferry terminal in Lerwick.
Your Shetland adventure doesn't have to be expensive.
Advanced booking is recommended.
