John Fleming from Blue Shark Angling Galway reports…
With weather continuing to stop our attempts at shark wave been spending a good but of time inshore.
We’ve have some great fishing though. Plenty of big Pollock, mackerel, scad. Some nice huss and loads of big pouting.
Also squid have turned up in abundance. Evening being the best time with 20 or more being caught of an evening.
We’ve managed a few days at the sharks but catch rates are down probably for numerous reason and extremely difficult weather patterns can’t help. Our best day in the last month being 8.
We will be targeting sharks into November weather permitting as well as continuing at with fish and squid up until Christmas.

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.
