The Clare Dragoon is known as the tamer of beasts, namely massive sixgill sharks. Skipper Luke Aston knows how to find them, but it’s not easy work. Read about the latest monster in his own words:

Day 7 and Andy said let there be a massive shark!!
So over the last 10 days I have done 7 days fishing for SixGills for at least part of the day. We did have some fine conger Tope and huss but that was all bycatch. Gary got stuck in a big fish but after an hour and a half we lost it.
A big conger!
Bull huss
Today Andy was back for his third time this year. On one of those days he had 2 SixGill and another he blanked but today he made it 3 from 3 with a massive 15 feet long lump. I estimate it at 1400lbs and I think that is conservative. Andy has great gear for this fishing and it still took an hour and 40 min to leader.
Well into the fight, and keeping the pressure on.
At the surface!
Look at the size of that!

Luke also says there were bluefin tuna breaking around the boat, so keep an eye on these reports over the next few weeks.

Go fishing…
