Pictured above is local bass angler, Ebor Benson, with his first of the season. Well done Ebor!!!
Below is a fine 75cm fish caught by Cobh SAC angler, Pat O'Shea. Pat was using a weighted soft plastic.
Here is Pat again with that fine 75cm fish.
With just over two weeks to go to the closed season the return of bass couldn't be more welcome. At least all anglers now have a chance to bag a few before the month long break.
Over the closed season we urge anglers to be extra vigilant as this is the time when those less scrupulous step up their poaching activities. If you come across illegal nets or suspected illegal netting activity in Cork Harbour or in the area from Ballycotton Island to the Old Head of Kinsale (or anywhere for that matter) make sure you report it. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or report it directly to Inland Fisheries Ireland on 1890 34 74 24.
