Skipper John Fleming reports that blues season is in full swing  – although the catch rate hasn’t been all that high the average fish are a good size, and all tagged and released of course.

Mackerel are very patchy but plenty of scad are making up for that thankfully.

It’s been a very busy summer so far so let’s hope the weather holds for the rest of the season.

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.
