Skipper John Fleming is gearing up for shark season, but in the meantime is “settling” for great mixed species fishing with his guests.

Sharif, his family and friends, enjoyed a great day out with some fine pollock on lures with gurnards, wrasse, pouting and whiting taking baited sabikis. Plenty of mackerel in most spots too.
John says: Sunday was a fine day at sea today although still a bit of swell up.

Much harder to come by mackerel today, unfortunate as a shot at Tope was the plan.
We went on the reefs for a couple of hours, had some fine pollock, gurnards, wrasse and eventually enough mackerel to anchor for Tope. Unfortunately they had other ideas too!
We had a few dogs and this lovely thornback Ray.


John has a few spaces available this Monday coming the 24th of June.

General days angling and possibly anchoring tope, huss and spurs.

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.
