Jim Clohessy has followed up his potential Irish record stone basse with some nice cod, ling and pollack while out fishing with with Andrew Duncan last weekend. They headed west out of Cork Harbour and fished lures for most of the day, only breaking from the lures for a spell to unsuccessfully target skate.

Unfortunately, the bigger fish they were after eluded them, but the ones they did get were a good size, fin perfect and in peak condition; the lures that did the damage included 50g Black Minnows and Strikepro Shivers on 60g jig heads.

Warm, bright sunshine meant that Jim’s factor 30 was a must and the calm sea conditions made for a very pleasant day on the water.
