Cal Sheehan reports that after a long summer of mediocre catches, the fish are back with a bang in Rosses Point…

We set off on Tuesday 8th September at lunchtime in my friend Sea’ns boat. Sean (friend), Daire , Senan (both my sons) and I drove west past Coney Island and into Sligo bay in search of the fish that had eluded us all summer!

What an afternnon we had. In the space of three and a half hours we managed to catch eleven different species including some fine Trigger Fish.
