With the big numbers of Blue Shark coming to the boat we managed our first Irish Specimen Fish at 1.9 meters nose to fork of tail. This came to Shark Supremo Daniel O’ Kelly. Paul and his Dutch crew were happy with 5 Blues in 3 hours so went off to target a feed. Next on the list is the Porbeagle, we’ve yet to hit one this Month, but it’s not over yet.
