International group enjoys great day out on Killala Bay

May 10th, 2017 | by

Donal Kennedy reported a cracking day’s fishing aboard Leah in Killala Bay. On Sunday 7th May, a party of anglers from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Brazil set out from Killala Harbour at 8.30am for a day’s fishing. The weather was excellent with light variable winds and with a slight sea breeze to come late afternoon.

The first drift produced some nice coalfish and small pollack which were all returned. Further out in deeper water things picked up with bigger pollack and some fine ling being caught up to double figures in weight. As the day progressed and after many drifts over rocky ground the catches built up, along with the list of species, including more fine pollack & ling but also cod, pouting, poor cod, grey gurnard, and coalfish. Some big fish were unfortunately lost due to breaking lines.
