Popped out for a few hours this afternoon.
Wind had turned southerly, and tide was low.
Managed to get fresh peeler + lug in the morning from Dave Scallans (on the road to the Wildfowl reserve) .
Caught 5 small codling -biggest about a pound or so-maybe a pound and a quarter.Missed one nicer fish-had him for a while, but when tackle came in it was obvious why he got away-weed covering the hooks!!
This evening would have been a better bet - rising tide.
Got a parking ticket on the quays too $%£" :( -forgot it was a disk parking area
jd (19 euros poorer)
ps rumours of some bass around Ballyhealy-parking is free too, so I may go there tomorrow.

Drove down to Ballyhealy Beach-shouldn't have bothered-didn't even take my rod out of the car. Then drove to St Helens- no luck -gave up after an houur. Ballytrent might have been more sheltered. Drove bck into Wexford town, 4 small codling in an hour or so..(to peeler-tide out and turning)

one last chance for some decent wexford bass before the close season- may give sandeel bay a go.
Has anyone ever tried that mark?
