Specimens galore aboard the Brazen Hussy II in Galway Bay

April 6th, 2018 | by

Skipper John Fleming reports on a red letter day for anglers aboard his boat, Brazen Hussy II.

 

“On Saturday last we had an unbelievable day. We set out to target spurs and we certainly reaped the rewards.

We had 21 spurdog for the the day and 16 of these were Irish specimens!

I was absolutely ecstatic… Alan Kelly claimed 5 specimens for the day while John Paul Kelly had 4 specimens, Stuart Regan with 3, Owen Trill with 1 specimen, Paddy O’Farrell my crew man had 1 specimen and I also had one.

Smallest fish for the day was 103 cm and the largest was 116cm.

Spurdog are one of the species for which length-based specimens can be claimed. A clear photo on a measuring mat, like these ones available from Inland Fisheries Ireland, is perfect.

A brilliant day.

A treble shot of specimens! Owen Trill, Paddy O'Farrell and Stuart Regan had a triple hook-up and this was the result!

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 adrenaline rush with these hard fighting blue and porbeagle sharks all being tagged and released safely.
