Go sea angling < Back
Sea angling with an experienced skipper on a custom-built fishing boat is the safest and most rewarding way to enjoy this sport.
Carrigaholt Sea Angling trips, led by Luke Aston, take in the Shannon estuary or the more open seas at Loop Head itself, depending on the weather. When weather permits, the waters at the edge of the peninsula supply some of the best fishing in Europe. Anglers have caught more than 20 species in one day fishing there, including cod, pollock, saithe, ling, ray and mackerel, which can be used as bait for blue shark.
Luke holds a record for the biggest six-gill shark ever caught on a fishing rod in 2017. Luke offers deep sea fishing trips for everyone from the experienced Sea Angler to the fishing novice, whether it is for a Day Charter or a complete Fishing, Accommodation and Food package at his farmhouse B&B, Glencarrig.
