Was down in Ardnahinch at the weekend - weed free for far as I could see either side but little surf (with the west wind). Good luck! Couple of early cod caught down that way already I hear!

Does anyone know how the weed situation is around Ballyb / Ballyc beaches at the moment? Was hoping to fish out that direction in East Cork tomorrow evening.

Hope it not too late - I was at Ferrypoint last night - there are mounds of rotting weed piled up at the end of the point. I tried a few casts over it out into the deep channel but was snagging lots of weed. Worse when reeling in as I was catching a lot of weed over the last 10 m or so

PS. No fish either :twisted: :twisted: .
Cod season Winter 2013/14: 117 cod (best fish: 6.5 lbs)

What time u were there ?
Was a real disaster in Youghal tonight, not even a bite in 5h session from 5pm, thought to head to Garrywoe but after 11 the weather turned really bad so headed back home instead ...
