Kevin Crowley reports that the high winds of the last 10 days have made boat angling next to impossible, and many charter boats are confined to harbour at the moment. Shore angling is going well, however, and Shane Rochford from Collooney, Co. Sligo managed a fantastic catch over the weekend, landing a bull huss of 20lbs from a mark in Clew Bay. I also have reliable reports of good bass fishing on lures from the north Clare area. If the weather settles down at all I would expect to hear good reports from charter boat anglers, as this time of year is very productive if you can get out at all.
