What time is it? It’s shark time in Galway Bay!

July 11th, 2018 | by

John Fleming from Blue Shark Angling in Galway Bay has been in touch to say the blues have finally arrived in the west!

Anglers on board the Brazen Hussy II had the first shark of the season on Sunday week last, despite very tough conditions with a big swell and strong northerly winds. The first fish was a nice female measuring 171cm, estimated at 80lbs, caught by Danny.

A regular day is between 9am- 6pm from either Rossaveal, 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 adrenaline rush with these hard fighting blue and porbeagle sharks all being tagged and released safely.
