Donal Kennedy reports

A party of Mayo anglers enjoyed a pleasant fishing trip on board LEAH in Killala Bay on Sunday 24th June. The first drift of the day over hard and rocky ground produced some fine fish including pollack, ling, pouting, and spurdog. During this drift well out in the bay party was able to witness a majestic Fin Whale which was obviously feeding in the bay. As the day moved on, drifts over sandy ground produced lesser spotted dogfish, tub gurnard, dab, and brill. Not a bad day with a great variety of species!


Nice Brill from Killala Bay
