Whether you are looking to fish at sea or at a peaceful loch, the Berwickshire Coast has the perfect backdrop for your trip as well as a great variety of fish.
Try fishing at sea with Aquamarine Charters or St Abbs Diving. Fishing gear available for hire with weights, rigs and bait available to purchase on the day. Largely, fishing takes place inshore due to this area having the largest variety of species including cod, wrasse, coalfish, pollack, ling and mackerel. Inshore you are also more likely to see dolphins, seals, and minke whales in the forefront of the stunning Berwickshire coastline. Boats leave from both Eyemouth and St Abbs.
