Galway Bay charter boarts have started the season well, with good pollack and wrasse fishing on the reefs providing great sport for guests.

Skipper Kevin MacGabhann took advantage of the recent fine weather (before it broke!)

Good pollack fishing was enjoyed, with Kevin himself having a nice fish.

Guests also caught some lovely ballan wrasse.

John Fleming, skipper of the Brazen Hussy II, was also out and putting guests over some nice fishing on inshore reefs.
