The Heather Isle angling charter boat operates from Arbroath to provide a variety of trips lasting from a few hours to a whole day. Popular cliff angling marks between Arbroath and Montrose include Mariners Grave, Needle’s E’e, Whiting Ness, Steeple Rock, Usan and Boddin. Cold weather brings the cod inshore and is preferred by regular cod anglers who on occasions enjoy excellent catches. Target species include cod, mackerel and haddock. Other less predictable species that haunt the coastline include sea bass and salmon. As well as angling they offer pot trips where you can try your luck at landing crab and lobster to take home.
MV Ardent departs from Arbroath, the gateway to the North Sea. Then the boat steams to the stretch of water outside Arbroath, which has a good record for catches. Rods and reels are supplied on all fishing charters or if you wish to bring along any of your own fishing equipment please do. Heather Isle has a spacious deck area and you can relax and enjoy beautiful views of the town where a gorgeous sweep of scenery unfolds. There is a great variety of sea life and wildlife living in and around the small rocky inlets and shore. If you see anything that interests you on the excursion, please ask them to stop so you can have a closer look, at any time throughout the day.
