David Norman of West Cork Bass was delighted to get his first bass of 2022 this week.  The long awaited fish, which “gets the skunk off” as our American cousins say, was caught from a shore mark for a change (David is also a kayak specialist). The fish was caught during the afternoon on the surface using the bright green MrLabrax 20g TW (Top Water) lure in bright sunshine and crystal clear seas, just before the weather turned and messed up the conditions for a while.
