Dereck Schwartau reports from the deck of the charter boat Rebecca C…

Headed out at 6 am, Sunday 2nd of august and what a beautiful morning it was. Got plenty Mackerel on the way out for bait, all be it that they were a bit on the small size. We went west down towards Power head and got some nice Pollack and cod before heading out to one of the wrecks south of Power head. We took 5 or 6 drifts over it and got some really nice ling, the biggest being 23lb caught by Steve Cronin.

A nice ling

A good days fishing with a lovely group of lads. I dropped that crew in and was back out on the water with the Rebecca C for our second trip of the day and we stayed close to Ballycotton on the reefs where Andy and the gang got plenty of fine size Pollack.
