Over at Courtmacsherry Mark Gannon tells us he had ling up to 20lb yesterday while the day the before his anglers enjoyed mixing it up with good pollack and conger eels.
On Sunday there was blue shark on the species list. The previous Thursday they had some good fish including ling to near specimen size.
Meanwhile the two boats in the Irish Deep Sea Charter fleet, Boy Scott and Rod’n’Reel had some great cod and ling last Friday, both out numbering the pollack. On Sunday they had plenty of cod and huge numbers of ling.
Ling and Wrasse by far out numbered everything else but there were a few Gurnard and Dab off the sand to finish up the evening. Scad have joined the mackerel shoals too. This week started with more ling, cod and pollack. Stonebass were spotted under the boat and though one was hooked it was lost at the surface.
Tom Collins of seaanglingcharters.ie in Union Hall West Cork reports that he has had more luck with the stonebass. His anglers managed to boat one on Monday and another last Friday. He had his eye on a particularly big one of about 20lb last week, but could not get it to take a bait. Cian Fagan who caught the stonebass on Monday says it was worth the trip just for that one fish.
Apart from catching plenty of cod and pollack close to double figures on the reefs on Saturday his anglers having been landing plenty of ling, cod and pollack too, along with a good mix of conger, bullhuss, lsd, pouting, poor cod, whiting, ballan wrasse, cookoo wrasse and, of course, mackerel.
