A full house for the boys yesterday well done lads first ‘beagles for ye.
Five anglers five fish, not bad going! Dropped another and lost the first fish of the day – pulled the hook after an hour of a fight.
Yesterday saw the boys from Ringsend have a bash at the ‘beagles, all the boys organised by David Quirke were buzzing. Got on the drift and had a double hook up after about a half hour, that was 2 down, and a couple of nice fish too. We weren’t long waiting when Dave was into his first of 2 beagles for the day. He also got a nice blue, great craic with the lads with 5 beagles and a blue to the boat – now that is a good day’s shark fishing by any standards!!
What an insane day!
David Quirke organised a different group from the previous day, mostly regulars of mine – Tommy McGee, Conor Lowry, Joey and Robert Walpole – and somehow I’d say they were very happy to have gotten the invite!
What happened was insane. We stopped for mackerel and coalies on a mark and didn’t take long before we had enough and we were up and running for the shark grounds.
Once we were setup we weren’t waiting long before we were in a ‘beagle. To be honest I can’t remember the rotation the fish came in, what I do know is we had several double hook ups and loads of carnage and running about. The dubby bucket was in and out more bloody times and I’ve developed a bad shoulder from it!
Anyhow starting with Mr. Quirke (aka Mr. lucky red balloon): 6 beagles to the boat… such effort he put in and it paid off.
Joey Brady, 2 beagles and one blue
Tommy McGee 2 beagles 1 blue
That was a total of 12 porbeagles and 2 blues on a day I will never forget.
Our previous boat record was 6 beagles, we can certainly consider that absolutely SMASHED to pieces and that will take some bloody beating.
Lads as always thanks for a great day, the craic never stops on the Hussy even when the fishing is poor but that was some buzz.
Thanks for the help on the deck, that amount on my own wouldn’t be easy.
Back to general trips now for a few days rest!!
