Axmouth Harbour

The harbour here was made at the Sea end of the river Axe estuary, so does not fish well during or just after heavy rain. The Main target here is Mullet and School Bass through the Summer months, and Flounder through Winter and Spring. The estuary above the harbour is Privately owned, so fishing here is by permit only.

The odd Salmon and Seatrout can be caught as they pass up the estuary and onto their spawning grounds higher up on the River Axe.

When ledger fishing in the harbour, it is best to use a “popped up” bait as Crabs are found in their millions here!
For targeting the Mullet, float fished Bread and Mackerel are the preferred baits.
Lure fishing for the Thin Lipped Mullet is possible in this harbour, with some specimen sized Mullet present through most of the summer.
