Donal Kennedy reports

On Friday 29th June a party of anglers set out from Killala harbour for a day’s fishing out in the bay. The weather was perfect with sun and light winds. Various drifts over rocky bottom produced a multitude of species including ling, pollack, ballan wrasse, pouting, cuckoo wrasse, poor cod, and spurdog. Later in the day, drifts over sandy ground produced plaice, dab and the ever present lesser spotted dogfish. All in all a nice day’s fishing with over 10 different species caught!
