Shark fishing slows in Cork, but one angler takes a tiger by the tail and wins our Catch of the Week

July 31st, 2014 | by

Jim Clohessy was out with some Norwegian anglers last week fishing from boats in the Bellavista fleet. Amongst this intrepid crew was Hans Olav Hagerup, an angling guide himself. Hans explained to Jim how his anglers fish catch and release for big halibut and as these fish are too big to get in the boat for a photo, the anglers get in the water instead. Little did Jim know what this would lead to when Hans had his first Irish blue from a small boat and also wins our Catch of the Week!

What a way to pose with a shark and win our Catch of the Week

Hans and his fellow anglers were so impressed with the quality of the blue shark and conger fishing that not only will they be back, but Hans is hoping to bring more anglers here next year as part of his business.

Go fishing…
