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.

Andrew shows off some of the whiting he caught while drifting for sharks

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.

A small hake caught last week
