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.

Notes: Having intensively fished for Bass (Catch & Release) on the West Cork Coast plus all of the recognised Bass fishing counties of Ireland I want to share with other like-minded anglers the thrills of responsible lure fishing for Bass on a One-to-One basis over a limited number of trips throughout the key times of the Bass fishing Year, which for me is June – Sept, sometimes earlier or later depending on how the weather is behaving…
I can offer a range of options around key tides, to include night fishing, in a safe and environmentally conscious manner including bespoke workshops to help build knowledge and confidence
