Fine weather and fine fishing for Clare charter boats

June 21st, 2017 | by

Charter boat anglers on the Shannon Estuary and around the Clare coast are doing well…

16 June: The Clare Dragoon got some weather that let them get back out fishing. Picked up some Mackerel in lower estuary but it was still a bit bumpy for the crew so they headed back in for their first go of the Tope this year. Had them at the baits in no time and picked up a few.


Pollack and smiles on the Lady Gwen II

17 June: There was a great bunch of well able seamen out on Lady Gwen II, with good fishing and plenty of craic.


Megrim on the lady Gwen II

18 June: What a fantastic day, and even better on the Ocean. The  Lady Gwen II is hoping to get plenty more like this…


Red Gurnard on the Clare Dragoon

Summer time again on the Clare Dragoon! Just beautiful on the sea today and maybe because the drift was slow the Pollack gave the anglers a chance to fish the bottom and they upped the species count. Some nice Gurnard and Haddock through the catch.

19 June: Lovely day on the sea for the Clare Dragoon although the northerly breeze freshened in the afternoon. For the first time this year they were meet at the Loop by lots of birds feeding and indeed the Mackerel where there in force, always a good start.



The drift further off was slow but the fishing was steady with a good few Ling in the catch. They headed for the shelter of the land as the breeze freshened and had a few nice wrasse.


12 tope were landed in 90 minutes

20 June: Good start to the day for the Clare Dragoon with plenty Mackerel and a drift at the wrasse. Then up north for a whitefish drift. In the afternoon they headed back in to a Tope mark where they had non stop action with 12 Tope to the boat in a frantic hour and a half.

Go fishing…
