Shark Fishing

Graeme Pullen well known English Angling Journalist with Dutch and Irish anglers had good sport with the Blues off Courtmacsherry on the 18th June.We steamed to a position just south of the wreck site of the Lusitania where the ground fishing is good there, in the event of no Blues showing up.

The rubby was organised by Graeme and his son Mike and with a slight breeze from the west we had a good trail going.With the tea just made the first run went off at 1300hrs followed by another ,then another,I thought first that we were going to have the mother of all tangles but we actually had 3 Blues on at the same time,Mike was first to land his, a Fish of 1.6m,Jack Chalane my nephew just turned 13 showed us why hes so good at Football and Hurling using his strength to finally land a Blue of 1.96m after a struggle lasting 30mins.

Another was landed by Mike soon after followed by  Chris and Geerts with 2 fine fish with the 2 Martins(Martin Langeveld and Martin Klock) landing the last 2,one a fish of 1.96m.With 7 runs we landed 7 and tagged 7 a sucessful days sharking.We also caught plenty of big whiting and haddock.
