Tried plugging around Sutton Dingy club, but the sea was a brown weed soup after the winds at the weekend.
Moved onto Portmarnock low rocks for a couple of hours, but nothing doing. Still, it was a pleasant and enjoyable evening.
Have the feeling it's still a little early for bass in these parts. Late July and August should see catches improve.

A Friend was in Portmarnock last week in what was perfect weather and conditions... nothing for him as well. Just might be a little early. I'll start giving the area a go in about 3 weeks.

i was looking at some of the marks north of balbriggan. they look like they should produce good bass fishing too. lots of shallow rocks and little sandy bays. a strong tide runs by them in places. it seems ideal. hope to try soon.

I was thinking the same myself. I'm now living just outside Balbriggan and I have been trying a good few marks with no luck. It seems it is very shallow right out and there is very little weed on all of those rocky patches . I'm gonna keep on trying. Have you heard of any reports of bass up this way? I have asked around and have heard nothing...

no i haven't heard?? i think it's a matter of getting the conditions right. there should be flounder too? venues north and south of this place produce them so i would be more surprised if there were no bass!

Talk about great minds thinking alike. :shock: 8) 8) I was just out in Balbriggan on Tuesday evening looking at the place at low water. There are loads of really nice looking marks. I practically spent every summer there as a kid and remember catching tons of crabs with my hand line. About 10 years ago a friend caught a Bass by hand :shock: off Rush beach. The fish had beached itself chasing small baitfish (I Think). There has to be Bass of the rocks around Balbriggan. It's just a matter of time.

Just concerning the sutton area , I was digging bait at the channel out by fintans school about two weeks ago and was speaking to a tunisian guy fishing with nets laid across the channel , after just 10 minutes he had picked up a mullet of around 6 1/2 lb and a flounder of around 1 1/2 lb a real beauty. It made me realise the standard of fish here and I would recomend it.

No it is NOT..... Guys take the number for the ERFB off their site and report this kind of thing. If you can get car reg plates all the better. This need to stop before it gets out of control.

the bass anglers often get good flounder here. crab is best as baits get whipped in minutes(if you're lucky!!!). popped up king rag baits should score for bass- i'll let u know soon!!! nice to hear of another fella out with his nets :evil: ???????
