Owen Dunne and John O’Keefe report that there is some good shore fishing to be had in the Arklow area.

The pair are making the most of the long evenings and fishing after work. Amongst the catches of schoolie bass, bullhuss and rockling was a fine 10,lb bass that fell for a squid bait. The mark has a small enough fall on the tide and crab and squid bait do best for them.

After each session the make a point of bringing back any rubbish they find, something we could all try to do more often
