Clew Bay mackerel fishing


A family party fish for mackerel onboard “Rebecca” in Clew Bay, County Mayo with Kilmeena based Wild Atlantic Charters.

July saw unprecedented fine weather in Clew Bay which was like waking up in a different country. It is so long since we have experienced such a long settled spell of weather. Female Common seals have had there pups and can be seen hauled out on smaller skerries in Westport Bay. The terns and seagulls have young and are numberous especially on Dorinish. Moon jellyfish are prolific in the bay and also dangerous Portugeuse man o’war as big as dustbins!
