Ireland: 300 lb Porbeagle shark

Last week Hamish Currie of Preadator II from Red Bay, Co. Antrim decided to try a new area for porbeagle shark just 22km north of Red Bay. It’s a piece of ground he had been looking at for some time in 170ft of water dropping off to 360ft. His anglers had a few shark but the talking point of the day was the one that got away. It fought for over 2 hours. We didn’t even get to see it as it dived very deep and I think the mono came into contact with rock. 
However,  Brian Menary from Bangor, Co. Down finally caught a very big Porbeagle Shark at well over 2 metres and this fish was estimated at around 300 lb.  More info at:
