Dave from Arklow presents us with some magnificient photos of Dingle Peninsula and a tale of bountiful fishing:
I managed to get three days off from work which couldn’t be wasted. Last year I fished over the three south-western Irish peninsulas- the Mizen , the Sheep’s Head and the Beara. So this year it was a turn for the next one – the Dingle Peninsula . But this trip was a little bit different than the previous ones. Fishing was a bonus this time. We spent more time on sightseeing , socialising and other stuff than fishing. Based on my previous experiences, we hit on the fish in completely new and unknown place, just from the very first cast. And to be honest, after the second day of pollack bash, we were fed up of catchin them. The numbers of pollack in my mark was countless. Size was a bit disappointment, compare to the Beara. Fish in the bracket 2-3 lbs was the most common, with the biggest about 5-6 lbs.
It was a very first rock fishing session for Sylvia and she did well. We landed about 80 pollack’s and couple of mackerel on lures together in just two, not so long sessions.
Here are a few shots from the trip.
