Stefan Martin reports on the first boat trip for club members last weekend, which produced some exceptional fishing. They were fishing with Killybegs Fishing Charters –
A club trip out for a few hours on the boat this morning just to see what was about on the first trip of the new year proved very eventful with a whopping specimen pollack of 16lbs for Kieran and some big fish also for Declan and Michael. Stopping the boat for a drift in the harbour before going out provided full strings of fresh mackerel for bait, and the drifts over the Roguey bank outside was full of rod-arching reef pollack with full bellies, with the biggest tipping the scales at 16lbs.
Interesting reading the specimen book report for last year with no specimen pollack (12lb) recorded and yet Kieran gets a 16 pounder on the first trip out! Fantastic stuff , great fishing and great to be back at it 🎣🐟
