Dave Edwards, skipper of the Silver Dawn based in Courtmacsherry reports on his start to 2022…
05 Jan: A short break in the weather and my first fish of 2022. A Pollack just short of double figures. finished the day with a few small Ling and this good Pollack. Saw plenty of Dolphins inshore. The weather was perfect to blow the cobwebs away.
13 Jan: We headed 30 miles south last night and chanced a couple of shark lines while we drifted. Little showing on the bottom besides Smooth Hound Fortunately things improved this morning with a great variety of species showing so it was worth enjoying the cool West Cork weather.
Conor O’Reilly had our best fish this morning with solid double figure Cod. Paddy and his son Glen had plenty of small Ling and mid sized Pollack along with loads of Starry Smooth Hound and a few Pouting amongst the catch.
