Mid-Winter Bass Fishing

Cobh SAC anglers have been picking up a few bass on the outer marks and beaches towards Ballycotton during January. Certainly the mild winter is helping and fish have been falling to lug, razor, and crab baits.

Cobh SAC angler, Pat O' Shea, has been persevering on a different tack, though, and has stuck to lure fishing to tempt the fish. Despite blanking four times on the trot, he struck silver on his fifth attempt and landed a 65cm fish on a shallow diver. Pat reports that this is the earliest that he's ever had bass on a lure. In fact this is the first bass Pat has had on a lure in January and February is now the only month that Pat has not had a lure caught fish. That's the next goal. Well done Pat!!!
