Evie Mae is an under-10m multipurpose catamaran. She has the ability to adapt fishing methods to take advantage of inshore seasonal fisheries.
In the early part of the year in the cold winter months she fishes for available demersal species such as Cod, Dover Sole and Plaice.
During the spring, when the weather settles and temperatures increase, the annual local Cuttlefish fishery commences. Lasting 6-8 weeks this inky season is short, but provides an opportunity for Evie Mae and other native inshore vessels.
The warm summer months bring further opportunity for Evie Mae in the form of the whelk fishery.
In the autumn months whelk pots are stored ashore and replaced by static nets targeting species such as Sole, Plaice, Turbot, Brill, Skate and Pollock. Weather permitting, this method of fishing continues into the final months of the year.
