Terry’s Travels A failed hunt for Porgies.

  With a break in the weather last weekend, we used this window of opportunity to have a look for porgies off the Donegal coast. Our fortunes altered for the worse, when half-way to the mark, a call from an angling friend suggested we change our plans! Boat anglers had caught absolutely nothing the day previous and blamed it on a large pod of Orca’s that had arrived in the area. I have no knowledge of how Killer Whales would affect angling, but we decided to come ...

I recently asked Sidney Kennedy (Lee Reservoir Angling Services, County Cork) to keep me in the loop on the next Bream foray, and typical of this man, it was not long before he gave me the nod regarding an up-coming adventure. My angling buddy, Andrew Wolsey had also been hankering for a “Bream bash” and was cordially invited. Two days, including one over-nighter is a relatively short stint when it comes to Bream sessions in general, but it was all the time we could affor...

A sting in the tail

With the local fishing still not up to scratch, I was recently looking forward to a week in Tralee Bay, in Kerry, Ireland. I’ve been targeting a stingray for my all-time species list which only includes fish caught in UK and Irish waters, and so far a stinger had eluded me. The Tralee area is though, one of the best for stingray. However the late and cold season was just as prevalent there and it was only literally just prior to my trip in late May that news filtered throu...

Just a short sea angling blog to keep my hand in! I can hardly believe that we actually managed to get off-shore this weekend. This must be the longest stint that my Red Bay Fast Fisher has had to endure, locked up on her trailer throughout the winter and beyond. It has been over seven months since we last set foot on her due to constant, inclement sea conditions and to be honest, I almost didn’t care whether we caught or not, almost! I just wanted to get out again! ...

Frankly the weather on my local Cardigan Bay coast in Wales for the past month or more has been generally pretty much unfishable. I still have not had a boat trip out this year, all being called off due to bad weather. Shore fishing has fared little better. It’s been the weed that has made the fishing really tough, and this has been reflected with other anglers as catch reports currently are as scarce as hen’s teeth. The amount of weed on the beaches and inside the estuaries ...

Terry’s Travels........Chasing Specimen Roach

We spent the day in search of specimen Roach yesterday, that is to say, fish of two pounds and over. They are one of the most abundant species in Ireland, but certainly not at that particular size, and a specimen is considered a rare achievement. One local lake on my hit-list has been extremely kind to me over the years, giving up its fair share of quality Roach, and we opted to give it a try. It has been almost twelve months since my last visit, and I was keen to see how ...
