Donal Kennedy, skipper of the Leah, reported some nice mixed fishing from Killala Bay and a wealth of varieties for a group of anglers from England and Swinford, Co. Mayo.

A good day out on Killala Bay!
A good day out on Killala Bay!

The day was dull with lots of cloud and a moderate south westerly wind. The first drift, a couple of miles out in the bay, produced good numbers of pollack and pouting. Further out, on the second drift, the party started to catch small coalfish averaging  3 lbs. (all put back alive). Another spot produced more coalfish and some nice cod up to 5lbs. As the day moved on, some fine ling and more good sized Pollack along with some very big mackerel were caught. All in all an extremely successful and entertaining day out in Killala Bay.
