Skipper John Fleming has a report with a difference this week, and not your usual target species…

Some crack on Bank Holiday Monday with a lovely bunch of regulars from the Howth Sea Angling Club. Squid was to be the main target of the day
We headed for a mark I fish when targeting them for commercial rod and line fishing.
We were straight on them, however the tide was turning and they died off straight away.
Fine squid
So away for another mark, again a few in quick succession and died off again.
We decided to try a mixed mark where we would pick up squid as well as the usual mix of species. We hit the shallow end of the mark and were straight into some nice pollock and a few wrasse, once we came off the hard rough the squid started coming fairly steadily.
Then a surprise red mullet came over the rail for Joe mcpeake which was a nice surprise to finish off the day then away home like a lunatic before the rain came down
Red mullet
As usual mighty crack with all the lads and thanks to Thomas Markey for putting together another great day.

A regular day is between 9am- 6pm from either Rossaveal, Spiddal or Galway depending on species being sought after. Fishing on the inshore reefs for pollock, cod, ling, wrasse, conger eel and mackerel can be reached in 10 minutes from departure, while our offshore reef marks are within 45 minutes of departure. Our ground fishing for tope, spurdog, ray, bullhuss, turbot, plaice and the giant common skate can all be reached within the hour which ensures the most amount of time is spent fishing.
The shark season usually starts at the end of June and runs into late October, this is the ultimate angling adrenaline rush with these hard fighting blue and porbeagle sharks all being tagged and released safely.
