More shark sport to report in Galway Bay over the last few days, with the calm weather and warm water providing ideal conditions. John Fleming, skipper of the Brazen Hussy II, reports quite a few porbeagle and blues to the boat each day. On Thursday they had 4 porbeagles and 1 blue shark, with another 2 blues on Friday. They hit a sudden thunderstorm on the way back in on Friday, providing a nice lightning show and a respite from the heat.
Saturday was another glorious sunny day in the west. Another 2 porbeagles were brought to the boat, while they lost one more at the boat and dropped 3 more runs – great sport!
The next two months should see plenty more opportunities for spectacular shark fishing, so give John a call if you fancy a go yourself!

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.
