Plenty porbeagle but also good mixed fishing for the Brazen Hussy II in Galway Bay


John Fleming’s guests have been enjoying good fishing for porbeagle over the past days but also had some great mixed fishing as well. The first blue shark of the season was also landed on the Brazen Hussy II.

Read John’s reports below…

Had the pleasure of having Kurt Zimmert from Austria with us for the last 3 days. His goal was to have a chance at a porbeagle.
Within the first 20 minutes on the first day his wish came through. We ended up with 2 nice beagles on the first day.
Day 2 was blowing from the North West and we decided to stay inshore and try for a tope. So not only did he get his first tope but it was also a real nice fish and an Irish specimen of 158cm.
Day 3 we headed offshore again, and within minutes Kurt was hooked up again. He managed 3 beagles with the last one being the biggest of his trip at about 120/140lb roughly.
Nice tope for Kurt from Austria
A couple days later it was,well interesting, blowing very hard from the north east. With a very fast drift we ended up doing 3 drifts for the day. However, 7 fish to the boat thankfully and plenty more runs. Three or 4 smaller fish with Thomas Markey getting the first of the good fish of about 150lb. Kennedy then hooked and landed a fine beagle of 170cm just shy of the specimen he was chasing. Tom Lynch had another fine fish. It is a great day when everyone on board gets a fish with Eamon McGrattan and Darren getting 2 nice fish a swell.
Finally, another day at the shark done. The porbeagles were a lot more finicky today with 4 dropped fish. We did, however, get our first blue shark of the season and had a nice porbeagle right at the slender of the session. Plenty of big pollack to keep the lads occupied throughout the day too.
Anglers also enjoyed good mixed fishing
