Charter skipper John Brittain on deep sea fishing for his clients fishing out from Clifden.
Fishing on board Bluewater has been very good for the last few weeks. The bad weather has mostly passed us by and we have had slack winds and can get to all the fishing spots in comfort. There are pollock in abundance so the light tackle anglers can really test their skills, plenty of Ling and some Cod for the heavier fish and really good Whiting Haddock and some nice Tub Gurnards for those that like species fishing.
Dave Mc Evoy, manager of Delphi Fishery, took a busman’s holiday with a group from Louisburgh for a day out today. A two mile drift lasting two hours saw 14 species in the boat with action all the way. By lunch time we were anchored in the shelter of Inishturk cooking some of the catch with a line over the side for a skate. No luck with the skate but young Seamus McEvoy topped the skippers 10 lbs Pollock with a nice Ling for catch of the day.
