With the peer pressure building with others putting up reports - its well time i got the finger out
heres a load of reports mushed together, basically because most of the time nothing happens!
The mantra on the inner bay in Galway is its rubbish - wrack and weed and boulders - shallow waters - pollution and a carpet of crabs
Still what are you going to do - restricted travel meant places I would never go near had to be tried out
This channel is just over 10 k to the door and i started spinning on it in june and july - got a mackeral and small sea trout
My mate had a 3-4lb on but it got off just at the waters edge - nothing amazing, but fishing close by
I was amazed at how shallow it all was and the channel itself is only 15 m wide on the low of a spring
Restrictions started again and i went back again with bait fishing in mind in October in darkness
The blanks soon followed - one rod small hooks one with larger hooks and big baits
Into November and a flurry of pin whiting broke it up - surely something must come in feeding on these?
the ground clean in the middle - has flounder written all over it - but none
December even the whiting were gone - crab feeding at its best - time to forget the 3/0 - size 1s are now big!
Jan and first session of new year a 19 cm flounder - not to be sniffed at
2nd session and after 3 hours of nothing thoughts of a new venue being chewed on - i saw my rod bounce - sure enough the snood snipped and my half sandeel gone
one more cast for the road
and within 5 mins the rod tip went and again and again - this is no crab
happy out after a few minutes with a spotty in the shallows
Theres hope in this spot yet - wonder would the spikey fellas have a look in the spring...
i suppose the spot is now a bit more viable and sure isint it a handy spin from the door
