Eype and neighbouring Seatown are well known and popular fishing spots. Anglers can expect to lose tackle in the snaggy rocks in this area although occasional big fish - such as skate, conger and huss - are taken, along with the smaller species of pout, wrasse, bass and dogfish. Mackerel provide good sport in the summer months - sometimes they can be seen 'shoaling' with the water surface 'boiling' as they chase their food of whitebait.   Feathering or spinning is best.

Further east along the coast towards West Bay Harbour is another beach set between the headlands at Eype. Once again the pattern is similar with rocky ground holding pout and dogfish, and with some big bass taken after dark.
