Fair play to ye for fishing there bigcol. Where you fishing the beach or the estuary? We were fishing for Flounder in Cloghane and gave up after 4 hours due to the weather. The southerly wind really kicked up about 2 o clock. Had a good session all the same with a couple of nice Flounder though it was a bit too rough to fish for Sea Trout which is what we hoped for. We had a good evening session on Friday from the pier in Brandon Creek though next time i'll be bringing the drop net and fishing the rocks to the right of the pier. I've never seen a better looking Wrasse mark. We got 2 huge Ballans from the pier on peeler. Looking forward to the next time i go fishing in Kerry.
