Rory Cahill and his dad were fishing aboard Rusheen an Orkney 520 near Clifden in Co. Galway. The tide was falling with fishing quite slowly so Rory reverted to trolling a single deep diving lure to tempt something out of the deep water.

Heading for home this pollock hit the lure hard and took plenty of line as the drag was set loose.

Rory Cahill, aged 8, with a fine 70 cm pollock caught on a slow troll using a rapala deep husky jerk.

A quick phot and released—plenty of bragging and story telling for Rory! A beautiful day on the water!
