A Well known local fisherman
Port Erin Bay
There are lots of angling opportunities from within Port Erin Bay. There is good fishing from the rocks at the southern end of the bay near the breakwater. There is also access to suitable rocky areas from the lower Bradda Head footpath. You can also fish from the small jetty between the Raglan Pier and the lifeboat station, depending on the state of the tide. Typical species caught within the bay include pollack, wrasse, grey mullet, mackerel and plaice. The best fishing tends to be on the incoming tide three hours before high water, and a couple of hours after.
Port St Mary Breakwater Mark
This breakwater, only a mile away from Falcon's Nest Hotel, offers first-class sport all year, is the only one left on the island where access is not a problem at any time. Try the back wall for wrasse and conger eels or try the front and end for coalies, mackerel and pollack. Conger eels can be taken during daylight, but the best come from the back wall at night.
