Devon Angling Centre Guide to:
Inshore and Wreck fishing in The Southams - Points of Departure, The most local points to us are either Salcombe or Dartmouth, unless you have a boat small enough to be pushed across the shingleat Start Bay. We can put you in touch with various trips with experienced charter skippers, fully insured licensed charter boats from Dartmouth and Salcombe. 

Fishing the Skerries Banks
The main Skerries bank stretches from Start point in a fairly straight line to within about two miles of Dartmouth. Inside the main bank are many gently undulating sandbanks, which produce in South Devon can be found all year round on these banks.

Coastal Rock Marks
Most Skippers and enthusiasts have their own preferred marks for Bass, Pollack and Wrasse. The state of the tide will often determinethe fishing conditions, especially when the water is calm and crystal clear.


Wreck Fishing
The depth of the water once past the immediate coastal slope is generally just over the 200 if you are fishing at 5 or  25 miles. There are wrecks dotted about all over the place and the Charter Skippers have the locations well logged. The catches vary through out the year with Large Pollack being the most consistent.In the summer months good-sized Cod can be landed in good numbers. Although as well as the leisure anglers the commercial fishermen                 will often net a wreck and spoil the fishing for others.
