John Fleming, skipper of the Brazen Hussy II is enjoying some good shark fishing at the moment with his guests. Fishing out of Rossaveal offers quick access to the shark grounds west of Aran, and on Sunday they had 9 blues to the boat, ranging in size from a baby of 10lbs to a decent shark of 88lbs.
John says he expects the season to until the end of October at least, and he has a good few dates still available. To enquire about booking a day afloat, give him a call at 087 7571320.
An unusual catch was also sent in this week by Michael Webster, who says his nephew Bailey (13), from Co. Antrim was fishing near Rosroe in Killary Harbour recently, when a trigger fish took his mackerel strip bait and gave him a good scrap before being landed. Trigger fish have been turning up in increasing numbers in Cork and Kerry over recent years, although they are still virtually unheard of this far north, so well done to Bailey. Apologies for the blurry photo but the fish is nice and sharp!
