Sean Maguire and Luke Aston had some fine days out on their charter boats in the last week.

In the last few days Anglers on Lady Gwen II have had very good cod and pollack, with a mix of scad, mackerel and gurnard thrown in for good measure. To add to the excitement sharks have been about the boat pinching fishing been reeled in by anglers. Every now and then someone will have a go with the shark gear and the result is always a blue or porbeagle released to fight another day.

It’s a similar story from Luke. His anglers on the Clare Dragoon have been getting good fishing too. Getting bait is no problem and then its a matter  of deciding what to target. Wrasse fishing is producing good sized Ballans on the mackerel baits. And the deeper reefs are seeing pollack, ling, gurnard and haddock take the bait.  Thornbacks are there for the catching too over the right ground and sharks can be a pest until a bait is in the water for them and adrenaline levels rise.

Go fishing…
