Charter boat anglers at Union Hall get their skates on

April 12th, 2018 | by

Charter boat, Loch an Iasc, out of Union Hall and skippered by Tom Collins is back on the water and getting amongst the big fish.

On Sunday his crew had 4 skate to the boat. Both Piotrek Nowakowski and David Lordan had one each while Martin Fitzgerald took the lions share of the glory (and the hard work) hauling up 2 decent skate from the depths.

Piotrek’s skate would probably have been a length based specimen but unfortunately most of its tail was missing.

All the fish were tagged and released as part of the Marine Sportfish Tagging Programme.

The Loch an Iasc is a fast worker 36 built in Valentia and refurbished in 2005 under department of marine supervision specifically for angling charters and whale watching. She is licenced and insured for 12 passengers and carries a P5 licence which allows her to operate within 30 miles of designated ports. For customer comfort there is inside seating for 12 passengers and it has a toilet as well. The Loch an Iasc is powered by two Caterpillar 3126 engines giving a total of 700 horsepower which means that our customers can get to fishing grounds faster or when the whales and dolphins are offshore you will get more time with them. In 2014 Tom Collins invested in new electronics and fitted new led lighting for night shark fishing trips. Tom has found in the past that lots of light at night attracts baitfish which in turn brings in the big predators. For information on trip from the Reen Pier in Union Hall, County Cork, contact Tom Collins at +353 (0)87 – 279 2983.
