|Myles Kelly with a 7lb 5oz Thick Lipped Mullet|
'....Sea temperatures are still low for the time of year and are hovering below 10C. This has made for difficult fishing in Cork Harbour where pollack and bass fishing has been very slow. The change in weather has seen fortunes for local mullet anglers improve and I got my first of the season in one of the Harbour's tidal creeks towards the end of April. Stalking a number of good fish for a frustrating couple of hours finally paid dividends when one hit the bread flake bait and took off on a long run. On light tackle the fish proved a difficult opponent and after some heart stopping moments the fish was finally played out and safely netted.'
