Brian McCall reports on a great trip to Kerry by members of last month…

Last month 5 members of all met in Waterville to try to rack up some numbers for our ongoing species competition. One of our newest members, Karl, travelled all the way from the capital to join the party.

Pat’s first bullhuss

The conditions were fantastic. Blue skies and plenty of sunshine with little or no wind. Meeting in KB Fishing Shop, they stocked up on bait and hit the water. The takes started early and the fellas were kept busy. Pat caught his first bullhuss, a hard fighting fish which was the first of 5, on a mackerel strip.

Plenty more fish were caught over the weekend. In all there were bullhuss, mackerel, ling, dogfish, pouting, whiting, cuckoo wrasse, grey gurnard and pollack caught. A very productive outing.

Kayak angling in Ireland

Irish Kayak Angling is Irelands on-line Kayak Angling club. The Club is open to all to enjoy, it is free and they welcome both the experienced and new comers to the sport of Kayak fishing. The forum is the club room and meeting place and great place to get in touch with other to get guidance, share tales and talk tactics…
