Dave Edwards from West Cork Charters saw his anglers get an interesting mix of fish…

A couple of distant trips this week saw Julian Lewis Jones get amongst the Albacore Tuna as well as plenty of Blue Sharks.

This was followed by a spin to the offshore wrecks before the easterlies put paid to any further offshore trips for a few days.

Evan McGovern was pleased to finally get his specimen Ling. A cracker at 31lb which wns Catch of the Week and Dan Lynch was happy to add a further specimen of 27.5lb to his already long list.

Shane and Gary also smashed their PB’s on the trip. Bluefin were sighted offshore so our focus will soon turn to them over the coming weeks

Go fishing…

West Cork Charters operates the Silver Dawn, a 41′ Rodman 1250 with twin 430 HP Engines out of Courtmacsherry. The range of fishing found within close range of Courtmacsherry is superb, with trips producing anything between 6 and 15 different species as a norm and in excess of 20 is possible if anglers are prepared to change methods and use different baits and lures throughout their trip. As a rule mackerel, pollock, cod and ling are usually encountered but several species of wrasse along with whiting, pouting, coalfish, bull huss, conger and many more are often added to the catch.
If you do choose to head offshore to sample the superb shark fishing available within 10 miles of Courtmacsherry, there is a very strong chance of encountering blue sharks and an increasing chance of bringing a porbeagle shark to the boat.
