Charter boats operating out of Dungarvan have had a couple of bumper weeks with quality shark fishing and some pretty good ground and wreck fishing too. Dungarvan Offshore Charters had some great days sharking with 8 to the boat on one day, all tagged and released as part of the Marine Sportfish Tagging Programme. And the recent calm weather was perfect for targeting offshore wrecks which threw up some nice pollock and cod for the Rinnashark Sea Angling Club who ventured out for the day.
The blue skies also brought some good fishing to Dungarvan Bay Charter Boats as the warm weather seemed to encourage plenty of ling to bite.

Bay areas, where Cod, ling, conger, pollack, coalie, gurnard, pouting
are regular visitors to the surface.
Wreck Fishing on one of the many WW1 wrecks located within a 14mile radius
of Helvick Head, where large ling and conger are had, amongst an often
other abundance of large wreck whiting, cod and pollack.
Bass fishing has proven quite popular and productive in the Dungarvan
Bay Area in recent years and is provided for on request. Many varying
fishing techniques prove productive.
Mackerel Trips are undertaken in the summer months when the shoals are
abundant. Uptiding in Dungarvan Bay for Bass, thornback, lesser spotted
dogfish and bullhuss is also productive.
