Terry’s Travels Trolling on Lough Mask

I have just returned from a short week-end on Lough Mask, Galway in pursuit of the stunning Brown Trout this area is famous for. We spent the whole session trolling in an attempt to sort out a specimen (anything over the magical 10lb barrier). Andy Wolsey joined me on this adventure, as usual, but un-like most of our angling trips, neither of us are too familiar with this method, or indeed, the Lough itself. This is my second attempt to find a double-figure fish on Lou...

The start of 2014 has been a stark contrast to recent years regarding weather patterns. The bitter drop in temperature didn’t show, but the rainfall seemed relentless. I normally spend the first two months of the season in search of specimen River Pike, but my local waters have been a permanent wash-out. The large females have passed through un-hindered on their way to spawning bays, which isn’t a bad situation I suppose, but it leaves my specimen tally at zero so far! ...

  After our successful Flounder bash earlier in the day, we made sure that we were well fed and suitably geared up for the night session ahead. This would be on one of the many surf beaches Cork has to offer. On this occasion we were in search of Painted Ray, and in this particular area, if lucky enough to find them, they range from 6-14lbs. With light southerlies and relatively calm seas, our optimism was high. The ever-present “doggies” made an early ...

This was day number two on our Cork shore-angling adventure. After our successful crack at the Whiting on the previous night, we were now on a new mission in search of Flounder. Just myself, Sid and Andy on this occasion as Sid’s brother Brian had other commitments. Our first venue looked superb, but quite worryingly; we never had a touch between us. After three excruciatingly cold hours, we decided on a move further along the estuary. It may have been possible that we mi...

Terry’s Travels Chasing Whiting In the weeks leading up to Christmas, I managed a few shore trips, and am I glad I did! I don’t need to remind you that from the beginning of 2014, Ireland, along with the UK has taken an absolute battering from storm after storm, on several occasions we had three storms in one week! With gale force winds and record rainfall, there have been few venues fit to venture out on, both from an angling perspective and a health and safety iss...

I’m often asked what I think is the best shore rig to target general catches from the beaches with during the difficult months of February and March. This is the period when the bulk of bigger fish are offshore spawning and inshore fish stocks are at their lowest point. Most clean beaches will still hold fair numbers of flounders, dabs, rockling, dogfish and small whiting at this time, but can also see early plaice, school bass, codling and coalfish caught. Realistically, ...
