    Island Fishing

    Fishing for the Inishturk lobster and the Island’s huge edible crabs are the main commercial fishing activity on the island, these along with the many coastal fish are served fresh in the island’s B & B’s and Caher View Restaurant.
    The waters off the west coast of Mayo offer excellent bait for angling enthusiasts.
    Boat trips can be arranged on the Island.
