John Fleming, skipper of the Brazen Hussy II, is so enamoured with shark fishing that he called his business Blue Shark Angling Galway. And he lived up to that name this week, bring a good few sharks to the boat for his guests. So far it has been nearly all porbeagle sharks, with just the one blue for Darren Lynch on the 17th.
Darren’s brother Chris had a porbeagle of 88lbs , his first ever, and dad Tom had a nice porgie of 108lbs, also his first ever.
John has been out several days since in the fine weather, with porbeagle sharks hooked and brought to the boat on every occasion. Most are being released at the side of the boat to minimise handling where possible.
It hasn’t been all sharks, with some fine pollack and ling also coming aboard in the last week.

A regular day is between 9am- 6pm from either Rossaveal, Spiddal or Galway depending on species being sought after. Fishing on the inshore reefs for pollock, cod, ling, wrasse, conger eel and mackerel can be reached in 10 minutes from departure, while our offshore reef marks are within 45 minutes of departure. Our ground fishing for tope, spurdog, ray, bullhuss, turbot, plaice and the giant common skate can all be reached within the hour which ensures the most amount of time is spent fishing.
The shark season usually starts at the end of June and runs into late October, this is the ultimate angling adrenaline rush with these hard fighting blue and porbeagle sharks all being tagged and released safely.
