Wexford guide Sid Jones of Fishing Ireland goes fishing off Kilmore Quay and reports:

Monday 14 October provided perfect weather conditions accompanied with a perfect tide for an afternoon bass trip aboard John Deveraux’s Celtic Lady II.  Mackerel being first in line for our buckets and with John at the helm he quickly put us over a shoal. After catching enough for what we needed we decided to steam off to one of John’s Bass marks to pursue these fine hard fighting fish on spinning rods armed with a choice selection of lures. I was not to be disappointed when after catching a couple of Pollock over 3lbs my rod bent over and my reel screamed to a better fish… The first of the session a beautiful 4lb  (Dicentrarchus labrax) Bass.

John wanted to show me another mark that has produced Bass  in recent times so we reeled in and he steamed towards it which took no time at all with the Iveco 400 hp Celtic lady II.  Maria Corrigan was first to land a Bass from this mark while I had another brace of Pollock.

and one for the lady....
and one for the lady….

After a cup of coffee and a chat John wanted to show me yet another of his marks hoping for Bass … And what a spot !! I changed my lure as we were in shallower water and BANG first cast my Hokkaido strikes again landing a 4.5lb Bass after a great fight….. With a total of 5 Bass, over 20 Pollock and 40+ Mackerel……What a great afternoon !!

A double for Sid !
