Huss

Postby Go Big or Go Home » Fri Jan 03, 2020 10:38 pm

Got an itch to do some more huss fishing at the moment. Can they be caught around Munster this time of year? Wana try somewhere else other than Valentcia island.

Any sightings of them in poulnahserry/Tarbert Area
Catch, release, reminisce & repeat

Yeah in the summer I think they can be got all along that area, unsure what's there in the winter other than straps.

Poulnasherry is always worth a try I have seen so good huss from there, I would say strap three sandeel together but the best huss I have seen from the was caught by my mate Joe on an inch section of sandeel on a three hook flapper twenty feet out.
Cappagh Pier was good at one time as well.
There are a few North Clare marks you can find them on in the winter months

I'm sure they do quieten in winter around the shannon. They can be got but generally you need to be fishing foul ground to get them consistently.One mark in particular in clare jumps out but it is kelp beds fising. Valentia is far better for them.

Give it a few more weeks and you can go to Kenmare for Spurdogs for variety.

Besides the drive the thing with valentia, the people chatting to you and you miss the bites :(. People tend to stick around chatting on that pontoon. Ye know yourselves,ha.

I Plan to take the long way home and stop off and see if they have arrived.

When you are getting a much cod as I am :? you have to come up with a lot of different recipes. They were the long strips that can be pulled off the shoulder of the fish. It was deep fried in a batter made from flour and ice cold water. 8) :lol:

Here is a group shot of some of them awful small cod:lol: :lol:

Looking through my notebook I've had Huss from the Shannon (both Clare & Limerick side) in Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb and March. But I've never had a good one through the winter months, they have all been mostly small.
I'm of the firm belief that the vast majority of species in the Shannon remain the whole year round, but maybe not in the numbers that can be found from the spring onwards. Or else they are in much deeper water and out of casting range.
Ive taken them from both the locations you mention in January both during the day and night
