Charter boat shipper Des O’Connell reports on the first weekend back on the water for Fugeo in Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry.
Sea conditions were difficult but the fishing was good with coalies abundant. We also had some good pollack to 9lbs, mostly caught on baited lures. Ling were small but are plentiful.
No mackerel around but lots of sprat showing.
