John Fleming of  Blue Shark Angling Galway reports from Galway Bay…


Bit of a morale booster trip last Sunday. With weather conditions being very poor of late it was a relief to be able to get out again.

We set out targeting pollack and wrasse mainly but with a very fast drift we changed tactics and put down the anchor.

A grey gurnard

We had action straight away with pollack on slow jigs. Some nice fish coming up steadily.

We had also set up some rods for tope/spurdog and we weren’t disappointed.

We had 5 nice tope to the boat with the same lost.

Fantastic day here in Galway Bay. Here’s hoping there’s weather will settle and we can get back at the shark.

Go fishing…

A regular day is between 9am- 6pm from either Rossaveal, 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 adrenaline rush with these hard fighting blue and porbeagle sharks all being tagged and released safely.
