Peter Cunningham from the Boyne Angling Centre reports on a recent outing in the north east. The weather was overcast with southerly gusting winds, perfect conditions for bass in the north-east.  My baits of choice included ragworm and fresh crab. The session was just three hours long and was my first outing of the year. On my first cast of the year, the rod bent round and I landed a bass and a big smile from me

I was glad to see them back after a tough year last year. Within minutes the second rod bent round and again it was another bass. I had several flounder as well but they were all fairly small. Darkness was upon me and the size of the flounder increased and included fish of 31cm, 33cm and 34cm were the biggest. It was a lovely few hrs fishing and I finished the session with 4 bass, 7 flounder and 3 bass missed.
