There have been a number of good catches of large bass reported in recent weeks. Internationally renowned bass angler and guide, Jim Hendrick had one fantastic session. Jim, from Wexford, was holidaying in the general area with his family. He took the opportunity to shore fish the harbour. Jim's superior waterskills definitely came into play as, fishing an untried shore location, Jim had several fish over 8lbs, with two over 10lbs. One of these was 84cm. Spectacular fishing!!! Even more spectacular was that all fish were taken on the fly!!!
Jim wasn't the only one to score with a double. Myles Kelly of the CFB went big bass hunting with Pat O' Shea, of Cobh SAC. Myles thought Pat was joking when he advised him to gear up for big fish. He wasn't laughing, though, after landing this fine double, weighing in at 10lb 8oz. He was smiling, however, and well pleased he should be.
