To Sea At Last! Some pollack action for the south coast of Ireland!

March 2014 – At last we get to sea!

We left the launch site in Cobh and head to sea in super conditions (although a little foggy). We were soon drifting some decent reefs that usually hold pollack at this time of year. Our first drift saw us into some fish. All told the average size was small but we did winkle out a few decent fish…
