Ghillie and fishing tackle dealer Kevin Brain reports on some super shore fishing for bass and pollack in the Waterville area.
A WEEKS FISHING FROM THE 4TH TO 11TH APRIL – What a week of fishing we have had for bass and Pollack, I have had people out with me from France, England, Germany, and local anglers from Tarbet in north Kerry, 2 lads from Youghal in the Cork area, and father and son from Derry in Northern Ireland. First the lad from France; this lad had the biggest bass of the week weighting in at only 5 lb 8 oz, not big but it was his biggest bass ever, so that not so bad. Next I had 2 lads from England these lads did well on bass and Pollack. Biggest bass was only 4 lb and Pollack to 6 lb, they were very happy. The lads from Germany also did very well. They caught 3 bass and a good few Pollack. Local anglers from Kerry did well too. They hooked the most bass and lost a good few. Their biggest bass was 5 lb. The two lads from Youghal in Co Cork: I had these lads out on kayaks. It was tough with the winds, but we managed to get some good Pollack to 6 lb. Last but not least; father and son from Derry, they have never been bass fishing before but they caught 2 nice bass to 3 lb and were very happy, what a week !
