Ultimate Conger Eel Fishing (Charter for Four)
We love this Cocktail Making & Spirits Experience within easy reach of Brighton, East Sussex.
This conger eel charter offers an ultimate fishing day for up to four buddies and is a fantastic opportunity to be shown some of the best wrecks. Start with breakfast at the Brighton Marina yacht club then head out 30 miles to sea on a fast, stable catamaran. Head to the wrecks in search of eel and other native fish (including cod, pollack and bass). Conger eel are growing in numbers and size; catching one requires skill, knowledge and the right tide as they put up a fight by spinning and turning their long bodies (but don’t worry – all conger eels are safely returned to the sea after the experience). With lunch provided on board and rods and reels included, this experience is perfect for those who love fishing and a sense of adventure.
Weekdays and occasional weekends from February – November. Please note, if the conditions aren’t perfect for conger eel, the charter searches for other species of fish to catch.
Bad weather can result in this trip being cancelled but alternative trips for bass, turbot, pollack or cod would be available. Please check with the skipper if in any doubt.
Lasts around eight hours.
The boat holds a maximum of four fishing enthusiasts, plus the skipper and a guide.
Please bring warm clothing, waterproofs if it’s raining and sensible non-slip shoes. Rods and reels are included.

Bait and tackle are not included but can be purchased (from 7am) at Tackle Box on the quay, just above the boat’s berth in the marina. Upgrades for weekends and premium trips can be made at the time of booking at an additional cost.
