Great variety fishing reported from Killala Bay


Charter skipper Donal Kennedy reports from Killala Bay…

On July 22nd a party of anglers from Co. Mayo set out from Killala Harbour. The weather was nice with light westerly winds. Out over rocky ground some good catches of pollack, ling, cod, pouting, coalfish were landed. Plenty of nice mackerel were caught, too.

Nice Killala Bay pollack

On Friday 24th July another party of anglers fished onboard “Leah”. The winds were fresh south-westerly with rain promised later in the day. We drifted over sandy ground and things got interesting with some nice turbot, plaice, flounder, dabs, thornback ray, spotted ray, and blonde ray being landed. All ray were returned alive. Plenty of fine big mackerel were caught as well. All returned to harbour well pleased with the day’s fishing.

Another fine turbot

On Sunday 26th a party of anglers from Tubbercurry Co. Sligo set out from Killala. The winds were from the north-west moderate at first, to increase to fresh later in the day which restricted our area of fishing and time in certain areas. We drifted over rocky ground and things got very busy for the anglers with coalfish up to 6lbs. being caught plus some double figure pollack being caught as well. Also landed were cod, pouting and plenty of mackerel. Later, we had to move to a sheltered spot to finish out the day and the anglers were not disappointed with some more fine pollack and mackerel being landed.

Fine North Mayo ling
