Good sharking on Galway Bay when weather allows

October 4th, 2017 | by

John Fleming reports that there is some good sharking to be had in Galway Bay when the weather is playing ball…


Blue shark – tagged and ready to go

The blue shark are still playing ball and we had 2 nice blues a couple of trips ago with one fish of 93lb and the other 103lb. Great sport! We also had 2 more runs and 3 or 4 big blues messing around the chum bucket but they were having none of it.


Blue shark

We have had a few cancellations due to weather lately or ended up staying inshore. We tried specifically for porgies on 2 occasions, we had hook ups but no luck landing them unfortunately.

Some midweek dates available still.

Go fishing…

To book fishing with John aboard the Brazen Hussy II, 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.
