yip. gurnard are generally caught more often in deeper water (from boat). caught from the shore too of course but usually in greater numbers in the summer..
i reckon
good luck
2017 hopes and dreams:
first tope
2.5lb+ or 40cm+ specimen flounder
8lb+ turbot
6lb+ wild brown trout

Hi Ogie,

I used to live down that way many moons ago. There was a mark in Carraroe that used to throw them up regularly enough. Unfortunately I cant remember even how to get there.

One of the locals might be able to point it out to you, it was a relatively popular spot for mackerel and pollack.

Not much to go on but hopefully might point you in the right direction.

Best of luck.
