Luke Aston from Carrigaholt reports:
Saturday 23rd July we were back out on the reefs. The mackerel were a bit more patchy but plenty about. Some nice Ling and Pollack but again the fishing was a bit stop start. Good day though with a bit of banter on board.
The following day we did our first Blue Shark drift. We had four takes with 3 sharks to the boat. The best was about 85 lbs. Although conditions were a bit rough it was a good start. On Monday last we got a short session at a Tope mark in the morning and had a few. Also plenty Mackerel in the estuary now.
On Tuesday we were back out on the reefs again and there was plenty of fine pollack and a few haddock and codling about. A windy estuary on Thursday but the lads did manage a couple of Tope with a bit of patience though.
