Great Weekend spent fishing in Donegal Bay.
Types: Spinning , Beach and Float fishing
6 days of V.Highs and V.Lows . Spent the 6 days trying a combination of new marks and old marks along Donegal Bay.It went From having a fish on both rods and constant bites to not even getting a bite for 7 hours (after a 1 or 2 mile walk to the spot) but you keep reminding yourself that "That's Fishing for Ya". Some good new marks have been spotted and noted on the Sat Nav for a session in the coming weeks.
Highlight of the trip was finally landing a Ray which I have been hunting for a long time without going to the known marks. A couple of hours after high tide, when I hadn't had a bite for 2/3 hours off course is the time that the ray made an appearance. Truly got the fishing trilogy reminder Patience , luck and perseverance paid off in the end. Caught the ray using Mackerel caught at St.Johns the previous week tipped with squid.
Also previous day to the ray I caught my personal best Pollack 3/4lb a couple hours after high tide very close to the shore on slow retrieve.
