Headed to Balscadden in Howth just before high tide yesterday evening. Not enough room to fish as there were plenty of anglers. Stayed and observed one angler take mackerel in 2's and 3's , no-one either side of him landing any. Counted 10 mackerel during a short stay.

Tried Clogherhead this morning just after high tide. Not a thing. The seals barely glanced in my direction so they had little confidence in my ability in providing a snack.

Sure it's no wonder there are no mackerel being caught around the bay, mackerel are obviously gorging themselves on the nutritious overflow from the sewage treatment plant (AGAIN), it's laughable.
