What Fish Can be Caught off Whitby?

In short, lots! The waters off Whitby are rish in various kinds of fish including favourites like cod and haddock, as well as various kinds of flat fish.

In the summer we fish quite close to shore for mackerel. These are often shorter trips, perfect for children.

Fantastic afternoon fishing on Libby with my son. Ken looked after us very well helping us novices successfully catch 15 mackerel. They tasted great on a BBQ later as well.
