Michael McVeigh, skipper of the Rosguill out of Downings in Co. Donegal, reports that the fishing still need to improve:

Despite having a good day at Congers and Tope, fishing is remarkably poor – hardly any Gurnards etc. where good numbers can be expected.  Very few flatfish apart from a few Dabs.  Reminiscent of the start of the great red tide of 2012 – hardly likely given the roughness of the seas – weather has yet to settle.   Water temperature remains low for this time of year at around 10 degrees.

Interesting & inexplicable!!!!
