Jim Clohessy, TopFisher.eu, reports from Cork:

Sunday’s run was spurred on by a forecast for windy weather for the next week! It was a short trip suiting the tide, wind and cold. Although it not as cold as I thought it would be.There was a good scattering of codling about with a few small pollack thrown in. Best cod pushed 5lb.

Codling! Keeps things ticking over at this time of year..

I fished 45g for the most part as the tide was brisk enough and 25 & 30’s were just a bit too vague.
I found a Sakura Majikeel 220 on the bench in the shed so I mounted it on a 45g head. I guess it was a leftover from the Cork Small Boats Festival (Rob normally has a few Majikeels on the go). It caught well until I lost it! It’s a grand lure for this style of fishing because they are tough yet supple.

Jim Clohessy and some of Ireland’s finest angling journalists established an online presence where they publish articles of interest to all anglers wherever they are based (following the demise of Irish Angler magazine), but of course with a distinctly Irish flavour. So it all at Topfisher.eu.
