David Norman reports on the West Cork Bass fishing…

19 August: More first time Silver, this time for Andy P who absorbed all the coaching really well despite having no lure fishing experience. He also got just about the first decent set of conditions we’ve had all Summer and the full bioluminesence show at the fishing spots as a nice bonus but that’s all about to change.

18 August: Had a great couple of days coaching & guiding Brandon Hamber to his first lure caught Irish Bass. Flat calm conditions and masses of bait made for tough fishing but we worked hard as a team and the rewards followed.

15 August: Having some great battles with Pollock from the Kayaks while the Bass are resting! in Clonakilty, Ireland

West Cork Bass

David Norman is a Clonakilty based Bass Fishing Guide and Coach specialising in Shore Based Lure Fishing & Workshops.

Notes: Having intensively fished for Bass (Catch & Release) on the West Cork Coast plus all of the recognised Bass fishing counties of Ireland  I want to share with other like-minded anglers the thrills of responsible lure fishing for Bass on a One-to-One basis over a limited number of trips throughout the key times of the Bass fishing Year, which for me is June – Sept, sometimes earlier or later depending on how the weather is behaving…
I can offer a range of options around key tides, to include night fishing, in a safe and environmentally conscious manner including bespoke workshops to help build knowledge and confidence
