There was a biting wind from the east over the weekend and some snow too in places along the Co. Cork coastline. It’s not too surprising that angling reports are scarce, but we do have a couple of items to report. Guileen Sea Angling Club had a couple of members out on Monday. Wrapped up against the cold they managed just one flounder, but it was a decent fish of about 40cm.

Richie Ryan of EireBass was also out over the last few days. He found the fish to be scarce enough, but managed this smaller fish on the fly. There are reports of mullet moving in Ring, Rosscarbery and Courtmacsherry.


Charter Skipper, Mark Gannon, was out on Monday, 19 March. He tells us it was great to be out fishing again after some many trips cancelled. there was a cold biting NE wind but his crew enjoyed themselves, catching plenty of pollack and Coalfish.

In other boat news cod had been reported to be scarce as we wait for the current 7 year cycle to complete and good cod fishing to follow in 2019.
