West coast rock fishing guru Vinny Corrigan has been out and about, doing some fishing on his own and guiding clients too. The south Connemara coastline offers a myriad of rock marks with great fishing for pollack and wrasse in particular, and Vinny loves putting his clients over nice fish.

Vinny has also been exploring marks for bass, and found a couple of spots off the beaten track where silver bars have been keen to take his lure.

Taking in the view. It’s not all about the fishing!

With a few weeks left in the summer, but the good fishing continuing well into autumn, Vinny has some availability for guided fishing for hard-fighting pollack and wrasse. Check out his contact details below to book.

Vinny also wrote a great article in the American magazine The Surfcasters Journal about how he got into light lure fishing off the rocks here, and the techniques he prefers. Check it out here (the article is on page 47): Surfcaster’s Journal (surfcastersjournal.com)
