Weekly update

First blue shark of the year taken by Bellavista boat

May 30th, 2017 | by

Ian O’Shea from Bellavista Angling Centre was in touch to say they have had their first blue shark of the season. This is the first blue reported to the Irish Angling Update in 2017.

John Harrington from Dublin was fishing from one of the Bellavista fleet of small boats on Thursday. Ian was on hand to advice and give assistance to the anglers on board. Although the anglers only managed to catch 1 mackerel Ian kept their hopes high that a shark could come of it (They had a black of frozen rubby dubby made up by Ian well in advance, another advantage of fishing with the Bellavista lads). So with a slick out behind them and a bait in the water they started to fish. It wasn’t long before they had a shark on and it was soon landed.

They guys also got to fish for extra bait over the Ling rocks – pollack and coalies. It was a glorious day between the sunshine and the result.


Pollack and coalfish to start the day – mackerel were scarce
