Sea Fishing Clare Ireland Owing to having some of the richest waters in Ireland and Europe, and by having a large range of species, Clare is renowned for sea fishing. Mackerel are abundant from April until November and apart from mackerel as a great fish for the table, they are excellent bait for larger species, including white fish, bottom feeders, conger eels, and sharks. Sharks are also plentiful during the summer months, with a range of sixgill, blue, porbeagle, tope, spurdog, skate, ray, and dogfish. Most of these sharks can be caught only nautical miles from fishing adventures harbour, Kilbaha, Co. Clare and are some of the largest species in Ireland.
Fishing The Lakes, rivers and streams in Clare are rich in salmon, brown trout and a wide variety of coarse fish, including pike, bream, tench and rudd, whilst the gentle waters of Galway Bay are a haven for sea angling. Dotted with almost 40 lakes, the lakelands of East Clare have quality services and facilities for the angler whilst the unrivalled asset of Lough Derg and the Shannon waterway provide both game and coarse angling. One of the largest of the Shannon hire- cruiser enterprises is based at Doonbeg at the mouth of the Cooraclare or Doonbeg River, close to the beaches of Seafield, Lough Donnell and Quilty. All of these beaches provide good shore angling for pollock, bass and mackerel. Doolin is another good spot for shore angling. Attractions A guide to some of the Local Attractions.

Fishing in Doolin. Definitely mullet in the Harbour off the end of the pier, so take a sack of bread with you. It's quite a sheltered harbour with a bit of a beach, so a few flatties are also possible. Will bring some bait with me a throw a few baits of the pier and a few beers down the neck should make the whole trip more bearable :. Sam, I pasted this taken from Shore Marks on this Site. Link is on Homepage. It has a wonderful array of pubs and restuarants, but the harbour, pier and beach is what anglers are interested in
Doolin is better known for its music than for fishing or angling. Although Doolin is known as a 'fishing village', this term relates more to the past than the present. Very little commercial fishing is done in Doolin these days. Lobster fishing being one of the exceptions. The reason for this is not the lack of fish in the sea, but simply because it is not financially viable any more to catch fish in a Currach Curach or Curragh in order to make a living. Sea fishing: In terms of shore angling, the Doolin coastline offers a variety of places for the angling enthusiast. All the way up to Black Head and down at Liscannor and Lahinch you can find your own private spot if you are prepared to walk a little and jump across a few rocks. There are more easily accessible spots within a few hundred feet of parking your car, if you prefer the company of fellow anglers. Lake fishing: Although shore angling is the most popular in Doolin, considering that you have the entire coastline at your disposal, 'Luogh Lake' Luogh Lough provides you with another option.
