In what can only be described as a difficult season all round things have finally improved recently for anglers fishing for sea trout on the Boyne Estuary. When estuary fishing there is always the chance of a number of species including bass, mullet and mackerel to name but a few. Thursday morning was misty and foggy but a large number of anglers were undeterred and fished hard to catch some of the sea trout jumping and breaking the  surface between the maidens tower and the sea. A number of anglers succeeded in catching some small silver sea trout on spinners, flies and lures, with the average size being around 1lb in weight. The fish could be easily seen splashing about in the calm conditions and the water has cleared considerably from the cloudy chocolate conditions that have persisted for the last two months. Hopefully, these conditions will continue for the rest of the season.
