As the bass ban arrives its gives us a great chance to get out and try for some of the other great sport fish we have around our coastline this time of the year. The Smooth hounds are starting to make an appearance along the Wicklow and Wexford coast (there is a target for the soft plastic fanatics). And we always have the mighty pollack to keep us entertained during the month off. However one species I am most looking forward to having a proper go at is the wrasse. Plain and simple soft plastic fishing for wrasse is a lot of fun. In my very limited experience (too busy chasing bass) I have found wrasse take about any soft plastic you land on his nose. The fight is excellent they will try their very best to run you straight to ground...so tighten up that drag. For info on plastics and rigging drop into the shop and we can show you what has worked for us.
The bass festival is just around the corner, so if you are thinking of signing up just give us a call on 00353 51-393559. Looking for some encouragement well then check out Henry's new photo gallery of his recent trip over to the Waterford Coast.
A full itinerary of events over the bass festival weekend will be online shortly here. Entry numbers to date are fantastic and it is shaping up to be a great weekend....
We are also back OPEN ON SUNDAYS the usual time from 10am-3pm.
