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 !
