Thirteen may be an unlucky number for some, but not for the Clare Dragoon, as Luke Aston reports that this year is the thirteenth year in a row that Carrigaholt Sea Angling has managed to successfully target sixgill sharks! Luke first targeted this massive shark species back in 2008 and has managed to successfully bring one alongside the boat each year since; Carrigaholt Sea Angling are definitely the experts when it comes to this not often seen shark species!
Luke reckons that fishing for sixgills has been very limited this year with the lack of overseas customers and this weeks attempt was only his second trip this year after them. Luke was accompanied both trips by Andy Elliot who kept the faith and managed to get this lovely 10 foot, 700lb plus sixgill to the boat.
Sixgill aren’t the only species the Clare Dragoon has targeted lately; Luke says that the white fishing has picked up again with some good pollock, coalfish, the odd cod and some ling getting caught as well as some spurdog and a skate or two.
