Irish Angling Update, 19/12/13

December 19th, 2013 | by

It is much colder now coming up to Christmas and there were only a few hardy anglers who ventured out in the past week but some nice fish were reported.  The weather in the next week is not promised any better but there are anglers who will fish on Christmas Day and in the days following, as many people are on holidays from work and will fish despite the prevailing weather conditions.

Jason Davis,wins Catch of the week for his 20lb pike from the north Mayo lakes

It won’t be long before we hear of the first salmon of the New Year and there is news from the Drowes and Delphi Fisheries in other news this week.  Salmon regulations for the new season will be up on the website from tomorrow.

On the sea angling front, Absolute Fishing in Tramore in Co. Waterford tell us of some recent catches with some nice bass taken “on the Zonk”.   Graham from Boat Angling Ireland crew took to the tide on Kayaks in Co. Donegal recently and reported some very good coalfish using euro champ rigs.  Sean Jordan from Duncormick was out bass fishing again in the south Wexford area and using a slow retrieve and Duo hard lutes captured some nice bass on a dark night.

There was one major pike angling report this week and two well-known Pike anglers from the UK Jason Davies and Terry Bruns fished with angling guide Kenny Sloan on some north Mayo loughs.  They enjoyed some excellent sport and Jason landed the biggest fish of 20 lb. which wins our Catch of the Week.

In other news Jason O’Riordan is holding some guiding and casting courses soon at the Adaire Springs Rainbow Trout Angling Centre.  There are many other news items in our other news section as well as informative news clippings.

The next Irish Angling Update will be published on the 2nd of January where I hope to be reporting on the first salmon of the year along with many Christmas fishing stories from all parts of the country,

Happy Christmas and Tight lines especially in Ireland,
