Galway Bay fishing well as shark season set to start

June 9th, 2017 | by

John Fleming, charter skipper of Blue Shark Angling Galway reports on the fishing on Galway Bay…



We are having fantastic light tackle sport on pollock and coalfish at the moment, they are hitting our lures hard. We are using light kayak rods with small jig heads and shads as well as firetails.

Dylan condron and his crew were out once again as a warm up before shark season and we had great fun on the light tackle with fish up to about 10lbs with an average of about 5-7lbs



We also have been doing some ground fishing producing ray and a few huss of late, the tope fishing has been slow but will hopefully pick up shortly.

Also shark season is nearly upon us and I have a few dates available for anybody interested.

Cant beat that smile

Youmight get a bigger fish but you can’t beat that smile

Go fishing…

John has plenty of dates free at the moment for full boat or single seat charters – to book a day afloat give him a call on 087 7571320

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.
