Wild weather bassing....

Weather conditions were testing all week. Winds had been quite strong, mainly from a south east and southerly directions. By the weekend, a full blown gale had developed. Conditions for bass fishing just got tougher and tougher. A consistent and building surf led to extremely coloured water and widespread floating weed. Nevertheless, some hardy and experienced anglers managed to winkle out some numbers of bass.

Crab fished baits proved most effective earlier in the week, but towards the back end, with continuing stormy conditions, razor baits came into their own. Above is a fine razor caught fish of 61cm, landed by Cobh SAC angler, Pat O' Shea (

With the bass ban kicking in at the end of the coming week, most bass anglers will be anxious to increase their tally before the enforced lay off. Sticking to bait will bring the most success! Mind you a few of the soft plastics specialists should score aswell.
