Brilliant sharking for charter anglers on Galway Bay

August 29th, 2017 | by

John Fleming was on to report more brilliant sharking in Galway:

“We had Dermot Kavanagh and his group out last week, we had 3 blues and a porbeagle shark to the boat.

The first fish fell to Joe  – a porbeagle around 40lbs, it’s great to see so many small fish around,a fantastic sign for the future.

Next up was Dermot with a nice blue around 60 lbs and he had a second fish around 80lb soon later.

The next fish was for Brandon, a fish 2 cm short of specimen size, we had this fish headbutting our bait bucket and we literally hand fed it a mackerel flapper! The fish was 105lbs.

All in all a great day and a very happy group.

A regular day is between 9am- 6pm from either Rosaveel, Spiddal or Galway depending on species being sought after. Fishing on the inshore reefs for pollock, cod, ling, wrasse, conger eel and mackerel can be reached in 10 minutes from departure, while our offshore reef marks are within 45 minutes of departure. Our ground fishing for tope, spurdog, ray, bullhuss, turbot, plaice and the giant common skate can all be reached within the hour which ensures the most amount of time is spent fishing.
The shark season usually starts at the end of June and runs into late October, this is the ultimate angling addrenaline rush with these hard fighting blue and porbeagle sharks all being tagged and release safely.
