On Saturday morning Fionn O’Connell, from Bait All Tackle in Fermoy, took his first trip afloat of the year…

I launched the Alaska today from Youghal, Co Cork. It was the first time afloat this year. The mission was to replenish our freezer. I often take a customer from the shop and today Peter came along.Here he is seen using a Fin Nor fix spool reel, a nice sturdy piece of kit.

I had warned Peter that the East wind would make our task difficult and to help in this I headed to a small wreck I had found in 2013 which is prolific for Pollack.

I fished the Savage eel on a 12ld class rod and thankfully by 2pm we had all the fish we needed and an early return home. It was just great to be back on the water.
