David Edwards, skipper of charter boat Tigger, reports from Clonakilty…


There’s no doubting the size of a big pollack. David is photo’d here with one of 12lb 10oz

Inshore reef fishing has been very good in the last week with two specimen weight pollack coming aboard Tigger. Several more into double figures have also shown along with several cod in the 6-8lb range.

Lovely cod and a good pollack

Mackerel are going well and offshore the Blue Shark seem to be making a comeback after a quieter than normal August. The last trip was a Tagging Trip with local councillor Christopher O’Sullivan of Atlantic Whale and Wildlife Tours and Wildlife Expert Paul Connaughton of Shearwater Wildlife Tours on board to monitor sea birds in our trail. Only using one rod we managed 15 Blues to the boat and a further 5 dropped.

Weather is starting to impact some off our offshore trips but fishing is excellent when we can get out

Go fishing…

Tigger is a purpose built Procharter 31 angling boat, powered by a 330HP diesel engine and equipped with all necessary safety equipment. Reef and ground drift fishing is generally the most productive method with the potential to catch in excess of 20 species if you adapt your lures and baits accordingly. From mid June through to October it’s usually possible to target the blue shark fishing that is predominatly between 10-15 miles off the estuary.  All sharks are released and recent seasons have seen larger species such as mako and threshers being sighted more frequently.
