IRELAND: Courtmacsherry Angling News
The beautiful weather we have been experiencing of late has been great for fishing both offshore and in the Estuary.In the bay we have had good catches of Pollack,medium cod, coalfish Ling,Bull huss,Ray,conger and the mackerel making a show but scattered.
The inshore wrecks have produced some good fish lately with a near Specimen Ling for Christy Lane last Saturday and several fish in the 12 to 116lb range,Pollack to Specimen size with a few decent whiting and Haddock.
In the Estuary ,anglers have reported good Flounder and an angler fishing on the Lady Patricia last Sunday showed me a picture of a beautiful 11lb Bass caught in Courtmacsherry Estuary a few weeks ago.The fish was caught at Low tide with lugworm in no more than 3 feet of water from the wall above Flaxfort strand.Plenty of feed marking in the Bay so prospects looking good for over the Easter.
