Fishing on Sea Gypsy Longtail Boats
Important! Please note
If you are not used to the sun wear a hat and bring plenty of sun-block.
These trips are not for young children or the unfit. These are Sea Gipsy working boats and have no facilities.
A day out with the Sea Gypsies on a long tail boat, watch them dive to their traps, try some line fishing and finish with a fish BBQ on some secluded beach.
Don’t expect “Big Game” when out with the Gypsies as most of their large fish are caught in their Gypsy Fish Traps. That said, fishing with the Gypsies is a privilege, not experienced by many, especially at night which is a must for someone who just loves a rod and reel, or in the Gypsy case, hand line.
For the regular fisherman this will probably be the first time you have not baited your own hook– the Gypsies are that attentive.
All Gypsy trips are weather permitting especially in the “low season” from May to November.
Day time trips should only be undertaken with a view to shading yourself from the sun, hence BBQ’s on the beach.
Booking a Gypsy Trip involves visiting the Gypsy village 1 or 2 days before your proposed trip in order to organize times (tides) and check the weather forecast. The weather in low season is particularly unreliable!
This is a good opportunity to get to know your hosts and organize exactly what you would like to do and for how long, ie. Snorkeling (bring your own gear) Trolling, Bottom fishing, watch them dive to their own traps, dive with them, day/night, BBQ on beach, etc.
It is also a good time to pay your deposit and have a look round the village or have a fresh seafood meal.
Beach parties for up to 30 people can be catered for and are great for birthday beach bashes.
All the beer you can drink and all the fish you can eat plus a bonfire on the beach!
