First mackerel of the year

Here's one of the first mackerel caught in Lyme Regis this year. The story goes like this..

First mackerelFor more years than I care to remember the first mackerel of the season caught on a hand line has always been presented to the Mayor. And here's a photo of Gary Colloff of Bridgewater proudly showing off the fish he was really hoping to catch.

As he boarded Marie F. at the Cobb in Lyme Regis he asked if the first mackerel had been caught yet as he just missed out last year. I assured him it was still up for grabs. Says Gary after he had just landed the first fish "I absolutely love mackerel so I'm afraid the Mayor won't be eating this fine specimen. But I will share little bits with my two sisters!"

Harry May Boat Trips are pleased to offer Lyme Regis mackerel fishing and Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trips from the harbour.
