When he’s not talking the talk on the popular Lure Fishing Podcast, Cormac Walsh likes to walk the walk by getting out there and chasing bass in the south east. This is the business end of the bass fishing season and, with the August blue moon bringing some big 4m+ spring tides, the bass were active and hunting.

Cormac reckons that fish were much more active around the early morning high tide, with the first hour after high water the most productive for him. The fish he caught really wanting the shallow divers he was using, with solid hook ups from aggressive takes. He hopes that, with the spell of settled weather we are currently experiencing, the good fishing might last a few more days as well.
