In common with most charter boats along the west coast, the west Clare fleet has suffered from all the windy days recently. Being tied up in port is not good for business!

On the less windy days, local skippers have been able to provide good sport for guests. Luke Aston, skipper of the Clare Dragoon, had a group who wanted to target pollack, and they enjoyed good sport when they were able to get out to the reefs. Although the average fish were small, at 3-4lbs, there were some better fish amongst them, and anglers had plenty of action to keep them happy.

Fish on!


Another fit pollack

Sean Maguire, skipper of the Lady Gwen II, has also been out and had a good mix of species to the boat, including pollack, suprdog, pouting and red gurnard to name a few.

Gorgeous colours on the red gurnard
