Blue sharks showing well in Cork

July 27th, 2017 | by

David Edwards, skipper of charter boat Tigger, reports:

Settled weather has meant that we have been able to get out on most of our shark and wreck trips so far this summer.

Blue Sharks have been showing well, averaging double figures to the boat so far with several fish passing the 100lb mark. A couple of Porbeagles have been landed and I am also confident we missed two runs from a Mako last week. Despite not jumping, the speed and length of run left us in little doubt at the time and hearing of the superb Mako caught out of Kinsale a few days later just reinforced this view.

Wrecks have been productive with Ling to 24lb Cod to 16lb and Pollack to 14lb being the best to show so far. Reef fishing is going very well but Mackerel have remained patchy for several weeks.

Cod have also been elusive inshore but the last week or so has seen them arriving in bigger numbers with an average size of 4-6lb coming to the net.
