Daniel Brosnan reports that a 15lb bass was caught on Kilcummin Strand, 24th April. The angler, a French tourist, safely released the fish, described as a huge female heavy with spawn, after a quick photo.

Daniel tells us the lucky angler was fishing fresh lugworm. Bass of this size are not common anywhere and Kilcummin is not generally regarded as a big fish venue with the average size of fish caught less than half that of this lump, but a 13lb fish was taken there in the last couple of years.
