Blue skies and bright sunshine were had for the Bass Fishing Festival.  Doors opened at 5am to scores of anglers. By 10am gear was unpacked and over 80 anglers headed off to their venues from Wexford to Kerry. Absolute Fishing tell us “Impressive numbers of fish on surface lures. Estuary marks were producing fish in the daylight hours and rock marks in low light conditions. “
The lads worked an 18 hour shift but despite the tiredness a brilliant day was had by all.
