Very changeable weather on the Clare coast this week.  Skipper Séan Maguire had a group of anglers out on the Lady Gwen II.  Friday saw a dark day and fishing not far off the coast the guests were not disappointed with their catch of cod, pollack and some mackeral.

It was a beautiful day west of Loop Head on Saturday with sunshine and good fishing, what more could you ask for….the lads loved it.

When Sunday arrived there was a big change but Séan still got out for a while before the wind picked up and got some fishing in.

Also fishing out from Carrigaholt, skipper Luke Aston reports a double figure bullhuss and a 42lb Tope in the estuary last Wednesday.  The following day the fishing was in full swing, lots of fine mackerel at the Loop and plenty of fish on the deep reefs with a good mix of species including a few fine Cod.

Luke tells us that this paticular group of anglers finished on Friday with a good Wrasse session and a lovely Ballan which was 2.09kg which was just a whisper under specimen size.
