Hi Danny

Ive been putting in the hours too…Fished everyday Wed to Sat last week and only managed one small pollock. I threw the lure bag at them…hard and soft baits. Doesnt really bother me too much as I love just being out there and trying!! Although even a sign that they are there would be nice!!

Hi Crevan,

Its great to be out mate isnt it, even without hitting any fish. We havnt encounterd any feeding fish either but theres always tomorrow 🙂
A small pollock is cool, what did he take? his big brothers should be on their way back inshore soon. Love catching Pollock on soft plastics, great scrap off them !

Hi Danny

Had my first trip of the year with lures last week, didnt see any fish, water quality was good, bright sunshine and snow!

Hello Neil,

Good stuff, we are encountering the same conditions at the moment in the South East ( no snow thankfully). No fish either, although we have seen a few seals appearing and salking a few marks, we also witnessed alot of gulls working the water hard last weekend 🙂 Always a good sign.

How is the bait fishing going up there at the moment? It is still fairly slack down here.

Hi Danny

I got him on a Hazedong…..love to show you it but lost it about 2-3 casts later 😦

Will have to stick to bait fishing this weekend though…Im waiting for my replacement rod to arrive in.
Its fishing but its just not the same!!!

Yeah I read that you had an accident with your rod and reel, at least you didnt go with it! Tough break, but as we say all fishing gear is only seaonal !
Were you on your own ?

Yes I was on my own so it was a lucky it was the rod and not me!! I dont think Id fancy lying on the rocks with broken limbs/neck!

Unfortunately it was relatively new kit…just got it late september….

By the way where did you come across those nets?

You fish some of the same marks as me so just interested to know. I hate that shite…it really sickens me.

(Send me a pm through Lure Forum if you dont want to disclose mark)

Hey Danny,

Stumbled across your blog via the sea-angling-ireland site. The blog is looking fantastic and I will be an avid reader to see how ye are getting on with the bass this year.

I’m planning my first spinning session of the year tomorrow out east Cork way, very early in the year I know but spring tide and a light north westerly so who knows 🙂

Hello Feilim,

Thanks for the kind words.

I am only in the door from the Hooked Live event, how was your session today? I hope you had a good day at it. I missed not being on the water today!, but Hooked Live was a nice break from it.

Danny.
