Skipper Mark Gannon has been in touch with the latest fishing news from Courtmacsherry


Greetings from all at Courtmacsherry!

Fishing has been  good except for brief interruptions in our nice weather which slowed it down a bit. The one occasion we ventured offshore we caught some Ling to 8 kg but commercial netting has made the long journey south less attractive. Shark fishing was producing some good sport but as the season went on, they got patchy enough, fish to 2.6m were tagged and released.

Pollack fishing on light gear is very popular with our anglers and we had fish to 11lbs in the bay with plenty in the 5 to 6lbs range. Cod were patchy enough and very few to double figures.

Skate fishing has been producing some good fish with a good few thornbacks as well, our best day we had  12 boated to 1.8m.

The inshore fishing with the self-drives had good pollack, ray, dabs, plaice and in the estuary the bass fishing has been good with last week being exceptional – all mostly caught on live bait. The shore fishing is also producing some great bass fishing with the Gilthead Bream making an appearance from where they were first caught, with a fish of over 8lbs landed last week. Fishing today in poor conditions but have a few skate to 1.7m, conger, bull huss and dogs with mackerel plentiful.
