On Saturday, 25th May a party of anglers from Drogheda set out from Killala Harbour aboard the “LEAH” for a days fishing in the Bay. The weather was reasonable, winds were moderate south west with overcast skies and rain predicted for later. The anglers were not deterred by this and were not disappointed with the fishing which got better hour by hour. Among the days catch was six fine cod with the best approximately 8lbs. The party covered a shoal of coalfish too with  many fine fish landed up to 5lbs. Up to 60 were landed with many more released. The next drift produced some fine ling (up to 8lbs) and pouting. Mackerel were also in plentiful supply with some fine big ones caught. Another bonus for the anglers was the appearance of herring with about 30 being caught to the surprise to most onboard. To charter the Leah for a days angling on Killala Bay, contact Skipper Donal Kennedy on +353 (0)868174509.
