John Quinlan from Thatch Cottage Ireland reports that the improving conditions should see bass move back on to the beaches…

Fishing has been at a virtual standstill for most of the Christmas period with gales and massive seas lashing the south west coast.  I suspect that as soon as things calm down bass will be there to be caught.  While rough seas and high winds make life very difficult for anglers these conditions can be ideal for bass to feed in as large amounts of food are dragged up from the sea bed.
