John Fleming reports from aboard the Brazen Hussy II fishing out of Spiddal, Co Galway:

We had 2 more specimen spurs from last week. It was a very slow start to the day especially after getting the 34 a few days previous. But anyhow we fished hard and got a result in the end.


Tom lynch was first of the mark with a nice spur of 111cm and weighed 14.5lb

Things went very quite on that mark so I suggested a change of mark and that made the difference.

Young Liam mellerick landed a fine specimen spur of 114cm and a whopping 17lb. Well done Liam.

We’ve also been doing well on the reefs over the last couple of weeks with some fine pollock being taken on lures. We also had some nice cuckoo wrasse and there is plenty of mackerel about too.

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.
