Bass fishing is really beginning to pick up on the Copper Coast with the bigger fish starting to show up along the rock and beach marks in the last 10 days. Both hard and soft lure are producing at the moment.

Clive Power of CP Lures has been doing very well on his custom built needlefish / stick bait lures fished at distance with some excellent fish up to 9lb.

Eric was getting the bass in close on soft plastics

Eric Upton has also been finding some nicer fish on weedless soft plastics, sight casting to fish feeding in tight to the shore …. It doesn’t get much better than that!

The fishing kicking off just in time for this year’s  Irish Bass Festival which is just around the corner (July 13-15th).#

Go fishing…
