Exe Fishing operates the Southern Angler, a traditional wooden boat offering fishing trips in Exmouth for all the family. We are unique on the River Exe by offering all our tackle, fishing equipment and preparation of fish, at no extra hidden cost, even offering our younger visitors a chance to drive our boat with activities to keep a smile on their faces.
Southern Angler has been operating for over 10 years, a small part of the overall experience of our skippers who have been sailing since 1985 in the very same waters.
Situated at the start of the picturesque Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, which spans some 185 million years of earth’s history, and the mouth of the beautiful River Exe, a SSSI (site of Special Scientific Interest), Exmouth is a haven for a vast range of wildlife and sea life that can be enjoyed whilst fishing with us.
We offer both mackerel and reef fishing trips to the public during the Summer months with room for upto 25 fishing and a further 15 spectating. You can also privately hire the vessel to experience Deep Sea fishing with a group of friends, as school/youth groups or as a corporate experience for your staff of clients.
Exmouth is well known for the sheltered waters and the 2 miles of golden, sandy beach making it an ideal base of operations for us and our guests. We make full use out of this with our booking hut situated half way along the seafront with a purpose built landing stage.
We are a family run business now coming into our 4th generation, with a key focus on having fun within a relaxed atmosphere upon the fishing boat though, it does make it easier when you get views like we get in the East Devon coast line.
Everything you need for a fun days fishing is already on board, all rods are provided and your catch will be gutted or filleted to your requirements. All you catch you keep! We also have refreshments on board at a small extra cost if you wish.
How to book your fishing trips
We operate from a booking office right in the heart of the beach opposite Exmouth Fun Park or you can even book online with us right now from our timetable.
