The weather may be awful much of the time lately, but the odd weather window offers opportunities for getting out. Skipper Kevin MacGabhann had a willing crew and took advantage of one such window recently to get out around the Aran Islands. A bit of shelter from the isands saw them enjoying good fishing, with some cracking late season fish. The best of them was this 11lb cod.

They also had plenty of pollack, coalfish, codling, ling and a few mackerel.
