Here are the answers to some of the most popular questions we are asked about our Lyme Regis mackerel fishing and Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trips that operate from Lyme Regis harbour.

If you can’t find your answer to a question, please phone Harry on 07974 753287 or email him at harry@harrymay.com. He is always happy to answer your questions.

We have two boats that go mackerel fishing. There are no fixed times for departing. We leave when we have enough passengers. We usually start around 10 a.m. and go on all day until around 5.30 p.m.

The price for adults is £10 and for children of fifteen years old or under it’s £8.

Cash or cheque (made out to Harry May) only please. There are two places down at the Cobb that have ATMs. Please phone Harry on 07974 753287 for locations.

We meet at the end of the Cobb. The Cobb begins at The Lifeboat Station. Continue to the Marine Aquarium and carry on to the harbour entrance, where the boats enter and leave the harbour. Meet by the steps at the end.

The price includes all fishing gear. We use hand lines for mackerel fishing, one line between two people. This saves tangles and is better for everyone.

Don’t worry. The skipper will show you exactly what to do and how to detect a mackerel when it’s on your hook.

Absolutely not, we take babes in arms and their great grandparents. On most trips there is room for a pushchair. There is no upper age limit but you need to be able to look after yourself on board especially if the sea is a bit choppy.

We certainly do and anyone can ask for a life jacket at any time.

The skipper will cancel the trip and no monies will be owed.

Just ask the skipper during the trip and he will prepare your catch for the barbecue.

We have an arrangement with the local fish shop at the Cobb and they will keep your mackerel good and cold until 5 p.m.

Yes, we have an arrangement with Herbies fish and chip shop and they will cook your catch straight from the boat, fish like you never tasted it before!

Just ask and the skipper will give you a demonstration.

Take a look at some of these recipes.

You can book a deep sea fishing trip before the event by phoning Harry on 07974 753287.It is very important that you phone at 7pm the night before to check the weather conditions and to confirm that the trip is going ahead.

Our boat leaves Lyme Regis at 8.30 a.m. and returns at 11.30 a.m.

The three hour deep sea fishing trip costs £25 per person including rod and bait.

We meet at the end of the Cobb at 8.20am. The Cobb begins at The Lifeboat Station. Continue to the Marine Aquarium and carry on to the harbour entrance, where the boats enter and leave the harbour. Meet by the steps at the end.

Whiting, pollack, bream, mackerel, dogfish, gurnards and sometimes skate and conger eels.

We carry all life saving equipment and life jackets are available on request.

In our experience children under five years old rarely enjoy being at sea for three hours but if you are up for it, you may love it at 85!

We have a lock up shed at the end of the Cobb where your wheelchair can be stored during a trip. If it’s possible we can lift lighter wheelchairs onto the boat but it is easier if the passenger can walk down a few steps and onto the boat. We have a bench seat on the boat.
