Weed Watch

Postby Rod Tips » Sat Sep 15, 2018 7:09 pm

Is anyone experiencing the awful weed / algal blooms on the east coast? Dublin Bay is atrocious, with no let up since May. I can't remember it being this bad for this long. Dollymount strand is carpeted with the stuff, the Tolka estuary side isn't bad, but bull island and sandymount are very bad. Any reason or insight as to why it's so bad? I fished the very end of bull island into the channel near Sutton last week. Within 5 minutes of casting there was around 20 pounds of weed attached to my tackle. Lost gear, also reeled in some gear. Very disappointing as its around 35 to 40 minutes walk from causeway access, not to mention the setup. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
