Pollack, coalies and whiting on light gear on Galway Bay

March 13th, 2018 | by

John Fleming reports on his first trip on Galway Bay this year…


Bent into some nice fish on the light gear

11 March:  We had our first trip of the year today. A great trip  it was, plenty of pollack up to 11lb for me. A personal best and very near specimen size too!



We had coalies up to 5lb and whiting to 2 lb.



The fish were very thick on the grounds and we had great sport in the light spinning rods using leadheads and small shads.


A good whiting

We get some great sport this time of year in Galway for whitefish and still have some free weekends left.

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.
