South West Handline Fishermen Association
Aquila is a registered fishing vessel with the numbers FY324 and member of the South West Handline Fishermen Association (SWHFA). TAG No. is TAG64.
When we are not chartering we are fishing commercially for Mackerel
The SWHFA was originally set-up to represent the many mackerel hand line boats fishing in SW England and in 2000, the Association was one of the first to receive accreditation from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) for the SW Handline Mackerel Fishery.
Today, the members fish for mackerel almost 12-months of the year. We tend to fish at dawn and dusk using lines of 25 or 30 hooks baited only with brightly coloured feathers or plastic tubing.
We take great care to ensure that the fish we catch reaches the market in peak condition. As soon as the fish are brought onto the boat we store them in a ‘slush-ice’ mix to bring the core temperature of the fish to 0oC as soon as possible. fish such as Pollack and Bass are Tagged with the boats own tags to show the buyer that their fish has been sustainably caught and are in top condition.
Crew Were Great
Went out recently on a mackerel trip. Took my very keen 6 year old son and Geoff and his crew on the boat were great with my son and helped him fishing. Would recommend
Great trip out with Chris and Jeff. They found us some mackerel even outside of the main season! Lovely trip, lovely people, highly recommended.
Great Wrecking Trip
Great wrecking trip on Monday 12th August. Me my brother son and nephew had a great time with the guys. Target species achieved with a conger eel. Highly recommend this boat and crew. Will definitely be trying sharking next year. Cheers guys
Knowledgeable & Friendly
Chris was a great skipper to go out with. Knowledgeable and friendly with the kids we had a great trip out with ages from 72 to 9. I would definitely recommend this if you are in Mevagissey.
