Black Head Co Clare - the flats

Postby pajo » Fri Jan 04, 2019 4:54 pm

Hi,

Has anyone fished here in the last few years and what is it fishing like? I haven't fished it in about 5 years. There isn't much in the reports section on it.

anytime ive fished it it has been disappointing, but its usually due to there being a gale round the corner and blackhead/ballyreen are too dangerous and were my original plan

youll get mack and small wrasse and pollack in close - the sand can be dissapointing with only the odd dog or flat on it

ive heard of days where every cast was a ray - but ive never seen one off it in all my years

i would advise you to pick your days - and swell! and head further south to deeper water

Thanks corbyeire.

I fished there with my father back in the seventies and early eighties. Fished myself in more recent years. Always picked up a few a few doggies, small conger and pollack. Had a couple of good takes on whole mackerel - maybe decent conger or tope but never landed anything big.

It was a lovely place to spend a summers morning or afternoon though.
