Unplanned solo trip yields nice ling and pollack for West Coast Charters


West Cork Charters skipper Dave Edwards took a snap decision to head out on the water  on his own last week and the calm seas spurred him to head a bit further offshore than usual. He was rewarded with some fine ing to 20lb and pollack to 8lb which are fine fish for winter fishing.

Good ling for Dave Edwards from West Cork Charters

Go fishing…

West Cork Charters operates the Silver Dawn, a 41′ Rodman 1250 with twin 430 HP Engines out of Courtmacsherry. The range of fishing found within close range of Courtmacsherry is superb, with trips producing anything between 6 and 15 different species as a norm and in excess of 20 is possible if anglers are prepared to change methods and use different baits and lures throughout their trip. As a rule mackerel, pollock, cod and ling are usually encountered but several species of wrasse along with whiting, pouting, coalfish, bull huss, conger and many more are often added to the catch.
If you do choose to head offshore to sample the superb shark fishing available within 10 miles of Courtmacsherry, there is a very strong chance of encountering blue sharks and an increasing chance of bringing a porbeagle shark to the boat.
