18 July: Alarms going off at 2am in the lashing rain heading out on spring low tides to dig razor makes one question his sanity but it all makes sense when your sitting watching a crimson Donegal sunset on an empty beach awaiting Bass bites as the darkness curtain draws.

Bass – Catch and Release

Venturing west some stunning beaches under the sharp peak of Mount Errigal and some nice flatties and a Bass for Johnny which fell of the hook as it reached the sand so he took a quick photo and released it in tip top shape. Well done great to see another Donegal Bass on the shores of home.


15 July: A soft drizzle sprayed the mists of the Atlantic coming in from Glen Bay on the picturesque beach for the league outing last night. A rolling surf was trying to claw it’s way up the steep beach and a lovely Mullet of 54cm was landed by Pat early doors set the benchmark. Some nice flounders fell to gulp imitation ragworm lures and weever fish and dogfish making a nice variety of species. Most points cash prize was won by Pat Cunningham with a nice mix of flounders and mullet and the longest fish cash prize was also won by Pat with the 54cm Mullet. The 2nd place points went to Brian Smith. Well done to all great to get out with the gang.

Beware the weever – a nasty sting in its spiny fin for unsuspecting feet, hands and fingers…
