Gabriel and Patrick visited Wexford last week for five days of guided fishing. The aim was to fish for many species using various methods with some Bass high on the agenda.
Before there arrival the weather was very poor so I contacted them in advance to explain the situation and challenges it would present but the guys were committed to travelling to Ireland for there weeks vacation. I collected Lugworm’s in Dublin for the week ahead and gathered some crab from a local estuary to ensure plenty of quality fresh and frozen bait was available.
Bait angling using Peeler crab, Lugworm and Mackerel produced the best fishing with some cracking estuary flounder and some bass landed too during the week. Even when bait fishing light tackle was used which is very sporting and great fun while playing fish.
The mackerel are still about too, we had some during daylight hours at a rock mark.
Fishing was not hectic but despite this fish were landed every day with a total of 15 different species of fish caught by the end of the week, not bad considering we were not actually on a species hunt. Gabriel and Patrick fished hard all week and were rewarded with some good sized fish along with the smaller ones which they also enjoyed catching on ultra light gear, many of the fish caught were a new species for them with the bass being the most special of course.
Thanks guys it was a very relaxing and enjoyable week, hopefully we can do it again in the near future.
