Shark fishing is our speciality here in Galway, so much so that we named our company after it: Blue Shark Angling Galway!
Here on the west coast of Ireland our shark fishing is spectacular, between the months of June and October we get a steady run of Blue Sharks which provide fantastic sport.
The increase in popularity of shark fishing has increased massively of late along with the number of sharks. The increase in numbers of these hard fighting predators has to be down to the inland fisheries tagging scheme, which premotes a catch and release only rule.
We also have the nowadays rare porbeagle shark in our waters mainly during the months between October and April which means we have the unique opportunity of an all year round shark fishing season.
