Donal Kennedy reports

On Sunday 16th July a party of anglers from Ballyhaunis ventured out on Killala Bay.  At the beginning conditions were fine with moderate westerly winds but this was to change later to fresh WNW winds. The first drift took place well out in the bay over rocky ground. The group tried to catch some fresh mackerel for bait but they were in short supply. The skipper, as usual, came well prepared with plenty of fresh frozen mackerel and as the day progressed they were very much needed. After several drifts and plenty of fish being caught including cod, pollack, ling, pouting, cuckoo wrasse and coalfish the skipper decided to move back into the bay to fish a more sheltered spot. After a few more fish were caught, the group returned to harbour well satisfied with the day’s fishing.

The anglers from Ballyhaunis enjoyed their day on Killala Bay
