Sea Fishing in Weymouth's Old Harbour

This is very popular with young anglers who use handlines to catch small fish and crabs. However, these are not the only species to target here. Grey Mullet are numerous and some are surprisingly large. These fish are, of course, notoriously difficult to catch.

For the more serious sea anglers the species to target may be silver eels as they grow to a good size here. The best spot is opposite the Sailors Return Public House.

Weymouth Inner Harbour

Like many busy harbours there are numerous underwater snags to contend with such as hidden mooring chains as well as the constant movement of boats. So be warned.

During spring, summer and autumn there are mackerel fishing trips departing from the harbour. The departure point is well signposted. These trips are ideal for a family and one handline is supplied per two passengers. The trip lasts for approximately one and a half hours. Even those members of the family who are not interested in fishing will enjoy the ride.
