Great fishing in tough conditions on Killala Bay

Donal Kennedy reports

On Sunday 25th June a party of anglers from Ballina, Foxford and Crossmolina set out from Killala Harbour for a day’s fishing in the Bay. Conditions were far from ideal with moderate to fresh winds from WNW and a 2 meter swell. However, this did not deter the brave anglers and as conditions settled down for a couple hours the fishing began to improve. The first drift produced mackerel which were very welcome as bait. The following drifts were mainly over rocky ground and as time moved on some fine fish were landed with many returned alive. The catch included pollack up the double figures, ling, cod, pouting, tub gurnard, grey gurnard, coalfish, poor cod, and lesser spotted dogfish – an impressive variety for a tough day’s fishing in difficult conditions!
