Skipper Kevin MacGabhann has been showing his clients some toothy critters this week, as tope and spurdog arrived in Galway Bay in good numbers.

Mackerel have been plentiful, which prpovides good bait stocks allowing anglers to target these big predators. Kevin also reports good moxed fishing, with big pollack and plenty of coalies too, with some cod mixed in as well.
