David Norman from West Cork Bass is still getting some great fishing in Clonakilty Bay and other hotspots in West Cork. The sea temperature in the area is now at 10.5c – so just about holding in double figures – and David has been catching quality pollock from the kayak on Lures & Slow Pitch-Jigs.

It is a tricky time of year for this kind of fishing, with longer periods of unsettled, blustery weather and sunsets getting earlier by the day. David expects the good fishing to continue for a while yet though, once he gets the windows of calmer conditions that will allow him out.
