Des O’Connell of the charter boat Fuego in Caherciveen reports that he had good ling fishing at the weekend along with another fifteen or so species recorded, including pollack up to double figures.
Des says that the mackerel have returned and there is a lot of activity on the surface close inshore as the tuna are back too. Sea conditions have been testing with big swells at times – but that just makes the fishing more interesting!!
