Best shore mark in Ireland for Pollock?

Sun May 31, 2020 2:36 am

Just looking to find out what might be some of the best marks around Ireland for decently sized pollock? I'm thinking east coast isn't great for it as we don't really have good access to deep water close in, apart from the split rock in Howth and maybe around Dalkey.

At a guess, I would say the Beara peninsula would have the most number of quality pollock marks.

... also some quality marks on Achill Island ...

No, not any more sorry to say. There are some quality marks for Pollack in north Mayo but its an hour or more through the bog... so I would vote for Beara too. Donegal must have excellent marks, I had some very good fish right off the point on Melmore Head.

Clare, North, South, anywhere the water never leaves the rocks at low tide will have pollack and some good size ones. Boots on the ground and start looking. Walk from Doolin or Bridges of Ross.
