Mark Gannon reports from Courtmacsherry…

It was super to have our Dutch friends back fishing with us in Courtmacsherry again! What a fantastic weeks fishing we had- from lots of fine pollack on the reefs, to big ling on the inshore wrecks together with some big Skate and Conger Eels. With Danny catching the fish of the week being a lovely hake.

On one of the days we headed south to target sharks and had a super day- ending up with a total tally of 14 blue Sharks boated! Bert took the biggest shark of the week weighing in at 80lbs. On the last day Nick hooked into a huge fish which took him around the boat 6 times! The fish was taking too much line so we decided to start the engine and chase him! After nearly an hour of fighting the fish with the drag up full Nick’s line eventually chaffed and his rod broke! A dramatic end to a great weeks fishing.
