The weather has been inclement this week, with most days unsuitable for going to sea. With the boat tied up, skipper John Fleming has been looking back at the last few weeks action, and going through the photos. While shark fishing was slow in September, possibly due to the lingering algal bloom offshore, the dpecies fishing, particularly for whitefish, was “on fire”. Check out some of the photos from the last month.

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.
