David Edwards skipper of the Tigger charterboat updates us on this weeks fishing at Clonakilty:
Our first attempt at the Blue Sharks for this season went well with 8 sharks between 50 and 90 lb being brought to the boat, it wasn’t a long session and as we were still in May, it looks like we may be in for another great summer of sharking.
As usual while we out deep, we dropped a couple of lines to the bottom and baited feathers were bringing up some good sized whiting with the best just short of 3 lb
Another trip earlier in the week where we fished in deep clean ground to avoid the Pollack and Coalies for a change also brought in plenty of medium sized Whiting and a few Codling but we were surprised to also catch several small Hake. The Mackerel are generally around in decent numbers on most tides but they can still be very patchy.
