Silecroft gives access to Estuaries and the Irish Sea with fishing over Sand, Rough ground, Reefs and for the more experienced and competent skippers the chance to visit more distant wrecks.
Lugworm and Peeler crab can be dug/collected locally, while Sandeel can be trawled for on local Sand Bars. Mackerel is also usually plentiful the summer months. For the anglers without bait Hokais and Redgills usually catch Cod and Pollack.
