John Fleming from Blue Shark Angling Galway, skipper of the Brazen Hussy II reports that spur dogs to over specimen size continue to show up in Galway Bay. Al Marsden, a popular fishing fanatic from Northern Ireland, joined a small crew on Sunday and had his first specimen spur, a lovely 105cm fish. Alan Kelly, another top angler, had a nice fish just under specimen size.

John has also had good pollack fishing lately, with fish starting to feed well again and show interest in lures after a recent lull. Klaas and his crew from Holland enjoyed a good day afloat, catching plenty of pollack, some nice ballan wrasse, and the first mackerel of the season made an appearance too. Water temperatures are increasing, and the quality and variety of fishing will be improving every week from now on.



Go fishing…

A regular day is between 9am- 6pm from either Rosaveel, Spiddal or Galway depending on species being sought after. Fishing on the inshore reefs for pollock, cod, ling, wrasse, conger eel and mackerel can be reached in 10 minutes from departure, while our offshore reef marks are within 45 minutes of departure.

Our ground fishing for tope, spurdog, ray, bullhuss, turbot, plaice and the giant common skate can all be reached within the hour which ensures the most amount of time is spent fishing.

The shark season usually starts at the end of June and runs into late October, this is the ultimate angling addrenaline rush with these hard fighting blue and porbeagle sharks all being tagged and release safely.
