Fishing in Torquay

Posted on April 16th 2013 by

Fishing in Torquay is a great way to explore the area and meet some great people. I have had a lot of facebook questions asking me about where is best to fish in Torquay and Devon so I have therefore decided to try and provide as much knowledge as I can on this subject and truly hope the following information on fishing in Torquay is helpful for people planning their holiday.

Great places to fish in Torquay

Torquay is in my opinion one of the most beautiful places in the world and a great place to have a fishing holiday. If you are staying with us here at The Meadfoot Bay Hotel in Torquay then just a short walk away is the stunning Meadfoot Beach and Thunder Hole. A real local's spot which is also a great place to enjoy the sunrise or sunset. Nearby you have Torquay harbour which is just a short walk away and the area that is best to head to is by the Princess Theatre on the pier. The bonus of this spot is the easy access to shops and restaurants if you need to stock up on food and tea and coffee if required.

Hopes Nose is the next spot on my list of recommended places to fish in Torquay. It is regarded as more of a professional fishing area with a mix of float and bottom fish fishing available here.

Babbacombe pier is also very popular but has been known to get a little crowded with many fishing from one place...a great place to have a chat though :)

A little further afield you have Elberry Cove in Broadsands. This area is a favourite for catching bottom fish like flounder and also spinning bass.

Brixham Breakwater is where most of the fishing records for Torbay have been set and as one of the busiest active fishing ports still in the country it makes a great day out to go fishing here and also take in the feel Brixham which is truly unique to Torbay.

Fishing Day Trips

Fishing day trips can be tailored to your specific needs when visiting Torquay. Some guests prefer just a half day or some prefer a full day out on the water. We know a couple of great operations offering some great days out.
