David Hehir, skipper of Dungarvan charter boat Algerine reports on some fantastic sharking over the weekend.
We had 3 lads (Seamus, Michael & Brendan) booked onto the boat for the bank holiday weekend. On the Saturday we hooked into 12 sharks with 9 landed tagged and released consisting of 7 blues and 2 porbeagles including a double hook up for Michael and Brendan.
On the Sunday we hooked into 8 sharks with 5 landed measured tagged and released consisting of 3 blues and 2 porbeagles. We had plenty of blue sharks circling the boat with one ripping at the rubby dubby bags hanging overboard.
The best was saved for last though: just as we had called time and started the engine Michael Farrelly’s reel started screaming off and eventually landing a specimen blue shark. What a weekend!!
