John Fleming had a group from Irish Outgoing Pikers for a couple of days early last week. Although they had strong northwesterlies and a heavy swell for most of the first day, the weather cleared up nicely for Day 2. The lads were rewarded with some great fishing for porbeagle and blue shark.
The crew also enjoyed some good fishing on the reefs while they were drifting.
Father and son James and Matthew O’Donnell also enjoyed a day out. Matthew missed a porbeagle early on before bringing one to the boat a few minutes later. That was the end of the shark action, but they did enjoy good pollack fishing for most of the day while not catching sharks!
