Tomasz Ekert reports in his blog Sea Bass Hunting that his bass fishing season has started well…
11 March: The new Sea Bass season is open! Once again I started in the same spot as the last 6 years. Today I caught two Sea Bass: 56 cm/2,21 kg and 54 cm /1,75 kg. Both fish were inexcellent condition and fought hard.

A nice bass to start the season in Kerry
And a second to make it an even brace

To make them a little more special both have been tagged and released (of course). I’m happy to say I’m part of National Bass Programme. If you catch a tagged bass don’t forget to report it to IFI.

National Bass Tagging Programme

If you catch a bass with a yellow tag, please don’t remove the tag. Note the code on the tag (e.g. B-00001). If possible take a length and weight of the fish, and five scales from behind the pectoral fin (see link below for more details). Please then release the fish alive! Send us the details, along with the date and location and your name and phone number to [email protected].
