We are renowned for our family fishing trips in Exmouth for all ages. Even if you do not wish to participate in the fishing itself, you can still jump on board as a spectator and have a family day together.

Fishing Trips in Exmouth

The Southern Angler has a small selection of light refreshments on board at a small extra cost, along with a toilet.  Please note there is no shelter on board and you will need to dress appropriately for the weather conditions!

No matter your fishing level, a first timer through to a salty veteran of the sea, we are able to offer fishing trips for you! Our friendly on board crew love what they do and are on hand to give as much or as little support as you need!

Unlike many others, we will include all tackle and fishing equipment included in the price meaning no hidden costs. We do not even charge for lost weights!

Fishing trips in Exmouth

Exe Fishing  operates the Southern Angler, a traditional wooden boat offering fishing trips in Exmouth for all the family. We are unique on the River Exe by offering all our tackle, fishing equipment and preparation of fish, at no extra hidden cost, even offering our younger visitors a chance to drive our boat with activities to keep a smile on their faces.

Southern Angler has been operating for over 10 years, a small part of the overall experience of our skippers who have been sailing since 1985 in the very same waters.

Situated at the start of the picturesque  Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, which spans some 185 million years of earth’s history, and the mouth of the beautiful River Exe, a SSSI (site of Special Scientific Interest), Exmouth is a haven for a vast range of wildlife and sea life that can be enjoyed whilst fishing with us.

We offer both mackerel and reef fishing trips to the public during the Summer months with room for upto 25 fishing and a further 15 spectating. You can also privately hire the vessel to experience Deep Sea fishing with a group of friends, as school/youth groups or as a corporate experience for your staff of clients.

Exmouth is well known for the sheltered waters and the 2 miles of golden, sandy beach making it an ideal base of operations for us and our guests. We make full use out of this with our booking hut situated half way along the seafront with a purpose built landing stage.

We are a family run business now coming into our 4th generation, with a key focus on having fun within a relaxed atmosphere upon the fishing boat though, it does make it easier when you get views like we get in the East Devon coast line.

Please bear in the mind that our boat does not have any cover and you will need to dress appropriately for the weather conditions we are sailing in!

Everything you need for a fun days fishing is already on board, all rods are provided and your catch will be gutted or filleted to your requirements. All you catch you keep! We also have refreshments on board at a small extra cost if you wish.

How to book your fishing trips in Exmouth
