Eddie Butler sent us in this report from a fishing in the south west on board Shock-waves:

With the good weather a trip west was planned for Shock-waves, first stop was Fenit for the elusive Stingray, we launched early for the rising tide and within five minutes Paul Twomey had the first Stingray on Shock-waves, shortly after one for myself, we had three Stingray to the boat but no sign of Thornback or Undulate rays.

Day two was a trip for Bluemouth out of Caherciveen, some of the first reefs were fairly barren with only a couple of Bluemouth to the boat, we moved to another reef and bang straight into Bluemouth with over a hundred to the boat, a cracking couple of days in great weather. We stayed at https://www.facebook.com/sanantoine where our host Alan could not be more helpful, bait storage, wash down for the boat, a fantastic breakfast, excellent rooms, a must for the visiting angler, all in all a great trip!
