David Norman reports from West Cork where he is back on the shores chasing bass…

North Easterlies are the stuff of legend on the Striper Coast of America, but not so here on the South Coast of Ireland… especially when combined with Torrential Rain! I was pondering all this, alone in the dark and very content to be back out Bass Fishing again after the long and hard winter months that never seemed to end this year when the rod was nearly wrenched out of my hands as this 70cm+ beauty assaulted my Albie Snax lure in about a meter of water.

First decent fish of the 2018 season released fit and healthy to attack again… by the time photos had been taken lightning had begun to flash all around me and I literally ran all the way back to the car to arrive sweaty and relieved to have avoided a lightning strike, but delighted to have landed an early season clonker !!

Anybody up for some Guided Bass Fishing or maybe a bespoke Bass Lure Fishing Workshop to tune up those Lure Fishing Skills on the stunning West Cork coast? If so please contact me

David NormanDavid Norman is a Clonakilty based Bass Fishing Guide and Coach specialising in Shore Based Lure Fishing & Workshops.

Notes: Having intensively fished for Bass (Catch & Release) on the West Cork Coast plus all of the recognised Bass fishing counties of Ireland  I want to share with other like-minded anglers the thrills of responsible lure fishing for Bass on a One-to-One basis over a limited number of trips throughout the key times of the Bass fishing Year, which for me is June – Sept, sometimes earlier or later depending on how the weather is behaving…
I can offer a range of options around key tides, to include night fishing, in a safe and environmentally conscious manner including bespoke workshops to help build knowledge and confidence
