We had a rare flat day here on the Atlantic a couple of weeks ago and sharks were the target.

We started our drift and got a great slick going but the fishing was slow. We had 2 shark with one of them tormenting us for hours.

The 2 blues were about 50-60lb bracket, Roger had the first of the day which was also his first blue. He also had his first spurdog on the bottom.

David quirke had the second shark of the day.

Gary Blake also got his first spurdog for his species hunt.

All in all a nice day.

Plenty of dates left in November, targeting whitefish, skate and spurdog.

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.
