Marcin Kantor was out with David Norman of West Cork Bass last week…
Last week, I had the pleasure to spend a couple of days fishing with David Norman aka West Cork Bass. We have spent a day chasing mullet and 2 days on the kayaks. While mullet did, what mullet usually do and managed to avoid getting hooked, the time spent on the kayak was very productive indeed. It really was as good as it gets.
We got onto some lovely Wrasse, top water ferocious Bass (with a few double hook-ups!) as well as Pollock to approximately 9lbs falling to jigs, top-water and the fly methods. With the weather we recently experienced, there is hardly a better place on the planet earth than the Irish Coast. Great memories made with a very nice and knowledgeable angler.

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
