WEED WATCH - Wicklow / Wexford

Let's try to help each other out with this one!

If you are fishing an area that is full of weed or clean please post here. We are not looking for the mark you are fishing, but if you wan't to include it, please feel free. A General area like North Wexford or East Cork will be perfect. I am hoping that these stickies will become and invaluable tool for guys going fishing. For the guys not luckly enough to live close to their favourite beach this could be priceless. It takes a lot of effort to get the tackle ready, Sort the bait and then the drive to your favoutire mark only to find it unfishable due to weed. You log onto SAI the next day and find out that an area 20 mins was fine. :( How many sessions have been ruined this way!

Let's try get some up to date info on these threads to help guys plan a trip.
