Our shark fishing charters take you offshore to sample the superb shark fishing available within 10-20 miles of Courtmacsherry. There is a very strong chance of encountering blue sharks and an increasing chance of bringing a large porbeagle shark to the boat.
The vast majority of sharks are unhooked alongside in the water, including an almost certain Irish record blue during one trip. Using barbless hooks means that we rarely need to bring one on board unless it’s for tagging. The stern door and bathing platform on Silver Dawn makes it easier and less stressful for the fish to be handled after tailing it. All sharks are released and those that are tagged are done so as part of the Irish Shark Tagging Programme, to help with scientific research.
