Donal Kennedy, chart boat skipper on Killala Bay, reports that on Sunday 25th June 2017 a party of anglers from Ballina, Foxford and Crossmolina Co. Mayo set out from Killala Harbour for a day’s fishing in the bay. The conditions were far from ideal with moderate to fresh winds from WNW and a 2 meter swell. Conditions were to settle down for a couple hours and veer NW later in the day. This did not deter these keen anglers.

After a slow start the fishing improved

The first drift produced mackerel.  The skipper drifted over several marks, mainly rocky ground, and as time moved on some fine fish were landed with many more returned alive. The catch included pollack up the double figures, ling, cod, pouting, tub gurnard, grey gurnard , coalfish, poor cod and lesser spotted dogfish.

All in all a good days fishing . The party returned safely to harbour well pleased with their days fishing.
