Skipper John Fleming loves his shark fishing. We mean, he really loves his shark fishing!

So we reckon he was well chuffed this week on the first day targeting sharks this season, when 6 porbeagle sharks were brought to the boat by his crew. Check out the pics below!

All sharks were unhooked safely and released again.

As well as porbeagle shark, the crew enjoyed some nice sport on lighter gear, with some nice red and tub gurnards caught too.

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.
