John tells us they’ve had some great cuckoo and ballan wrasse with good pollock over the reefs in abundance.There are also some nice red gurnards to be had over the sand and that coalies, launce, mackerel, scad, conger and huss are about in good numbers.

Shark season is kicking off for Blue Shark Angling Galway this week and there are a few dates available still so don’t hesitate to get in contact as these will fill fast.

Go fishing…

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.
