John Fleming, skipper of the Brazen Hussey 2, can operate out of Rosaveel, 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 release safely.
John reports on getting back to action:
Well after a not so good start to 2020 and with Covid regulations in place we finally got going on the Brazen Hussy 2 in Rosaveel.
We had a bad start with small engine trouble which is all remedied now.
So, to the fishing we have had a few nice trips over the last few weeks with plenty of pollock and wrasse and some nice spurdog as well
We hope to start our shark season this week and we will have some availability midweek as the weeks go on.
