Specimen spurdogs and more for Galway Bay anglers

John Fleming, charter skipper of Blue Shark Angling Galway reports on the fishing on Galway Bay…

19 June: Great start to the spurdogs yesterday. 7 fish landed, a couple lost at the boat and a few lost before we saw them. 3 specimens were boarded and recorded, first one for Owen Trill a fish of 110cm, next one for his Owen’s brother Dave Trill at 106cm and another for Owen of 105 cm.



These are great sport on light tackle and are here from now until the end of September.

We also had pollock, ling, mackerel, cuckoo wrasse, pouting, and dogfish. Good species count and great fun.

Go fishing…

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.
