A Cod season for a change 12/12/2014
Out on the codling last night giving the bass a rest, I caught 14 cod to 4lb, have a guess what I am having with chips and looking forward to it, there seems to be a lot of fish around at the moment which is good to see, the summer was a mixed season, especially with the bass, they seem to be more of a winter fish than summer, just goes to show the seasons have gone to bits,

6/12/2014 BASS
Bass Galore, when most people concentrate on cod this time of year, I am still banging out the Bass, been home from holidays just over a week now and it was my first time out, I caught 6 Bass to 4lb and lost a few more, I only fished for 1 hour 30mins and boy did I enjoy, the Bass are plentiful down here at the moment, and I might even get out tomorrow also, I really did enjoy, I am convinced we got the best bass fishing in Europe if not the world,

Sep 11th
out fishing with Steven west from Scotland, we were looking for mullet and a nice conger eel of 17 lb turned up, I put in a bit of ground bait to see if I could get the fish feeding, and within 10mins Steve hooked the fish and lost it I said don't worry give it a few mins and he may be back so has we hang around, the conger came out to play again and this time we put on a head of a mackerel, dropped it down in front of him, and then he took the bait, I said lift the rod Steve and the fish took off, I thought the rod was going to break it was only a spinning rod, but after a few mins he landed the eel a cracking conger of 17lb that put a smile on is face, well done.

19/10/2013 bass on the first cast

I was out doing a interview on 19/10/2013 with Kerry radio, on my time as a fishing guide in Waterville co Kerry, after 1 hour of talking and saying how we came to live in Ireland, we got the rods and went for a cast, and on the first cast after 15 mins of fishing I landed a 6lb bass, he said I have never seen anything like that before, it should be out on Kerry radio early next year, after I finished my friend frank phoned me from Kenmare, so I told him to come up for a cast on the following day which he did, and after 1 hour fishing frank hooked into a nice bass of 3lb 8oz and I said yes job done again well done, I have not failed once at this mark this year.

great success again this year
the Bass stared slow in the season with the easterly winds, but when the season got going and the water warmed up it was great, I don't think it was as good as last year, but it seemed to be a lot of bass around 4 to 5lb mark, and what I did notice this year that the bass fought a lot harder then I have ever seen before, and the condition of the bass was the best I have ever seen, so there must have been a lot of feed for them, the further looks good for bass.

18/09/2013 BASS

out bass fishing with 4 lads from France, they have never been bass before, they done very well they caught 11 bass all around 4 to 5lb, and then went fishing the river Inny and caught salmon to 5lb there is no stopping these lads now

we have had some good bass fishing over last few days,I had some Lads down from Dublin, they hooked 16 bass in all, and was delighted with the fishing, with the weather it made a big difference with the fishing, fish have started to move all over the bay, I hope it gets warm again soon.

1/6/13 mixed fish

I was joined by 3 Lads from Belfast today for some fishing, Steve Ronnie and Johnny, I have seen this place where I wanted to try for a good number of years but I needed the right sort of lads, to do the walk and climb down to get to this mark, after driving for a good bit we got out of the cars and had a look at this mark it didn't look to bad until we went over the first field and looked down, ho no come on lads we can get down there, which we did it wasn't so bad going down and it was well worth it with Johnny hooking up right away with the biggest male cuckoo wrasse I have ever seen and a Pollack on the same trace, what a start Ronnie was into some good Pollack and then Steve started with Ling and conger eel it did not stop, and the we caught coal fish, pouting, Ballen wrasse, I lost count how many species of fish we caught, so after 4 hours fishing we were not looking forward to walk back, the hill must have been a 2 in 1 rise which is very steep, and after we got back to the cars I said never again, will I do that walk, tight lines, the rest of the lads could not speak.,p>










25/05/13 Pollack

Pollack have stared to show in good numbers, I was out on the kayaks and for the first time this year the fish finder was beeping like mad, so on goes the jelly worms and shads, and in a few mins we where into pollack the biggest was 7lb all caught and released, and I must say its about bloody time,

28/10/2012 bass and flounder

There are still a good few bass around, most are getting caught on baits but the odd 1 or 2 coming out on plugs, as Martin from Glasgow found out, and flounder are starting to it the beaches hard, so it looks to be great winter fishing times ahead.

13/10/2012 LOTS OF BASS

I was fishing with my son sion today, what a session it turned out to be,

we caught 18 bass and lost a few more, and all reasonable good ones smallest was 3lb and the biggest was 6lb but they came in thick and fast,

I have had some of my best bass fishing this year, with some really top quality fishing, lots of bass from 4lb to 6lb and a few between 6lb and 8lb 4oz and then a good few bass under 4lb its been an incredible year for me again.


just got in, I went out for a cast on spur of the moment and caught 11 bass,in less then 2 hours fishing, and I lost just has many,

I sometimes think that spur of the moment pays off with better fishing, the biggest bass was only 4lb but great fun on light tackle.

07/10/20012 kayaks

what a day nice on the kayaks, it was like a summers day myself frances and pat went out from derrynane a nice day the fishing was slow with only a few pollack and dog fish and dabs being caught, I was flat out trying to get a photo of a ray from the kayaks for my book which did not happen, the new book should be out and on sale by the end of January, or you can see me in get hooked in dublin in februay 3rd and 4th,


Sorry for no resulys since may, but there is a reason for it, there is one guy localy that looks at my web site and fishing results, and he uses my results as if he is catching the fish, P r - - - now his fishing have gone shit,

Now what a season, the bass fishing was a bit slow to start with from open season 16 june for a good time, wearther played a big part of it

so we went and caught a lot of pollack, flounder, wrasse, place,flounder, turbot, trigger fish, mackerel was very slow this season all year,

lots of kayak fishing with some top results of pollack to 8lb, a good bass and a few place and dabs and lots of specimin ballen wrasse to 6lb,

now moving on to the last few weeks, I had big phil from belfast down for a few weeks. he could not have timed it any better we caught 68 bass in 3 days smallest 3/12 lb and the biggest was 8lb 4oz if we would have landed every fish we would have caught over 100 bass and I lost one which was a double, on light gear , all fish was returned alive, for me and my cliants next time,I also caught a 12lb blond ray from a beach first cast, and a few t/b/ray,

If you need to know any results you can phone me or email, and I will tell you what the fishing is like. Tight lines and sorry again but I need to be a bit carful, what I put up on the site



now closed season for bass, give them a rest until the 16th June, still lots more to go and catch, plenty of mullet & Pollack, on the fly & soft baits & plugs, stared catching spurdogs from the kayaks, unbelievable fight, lots of fun with seatrout to 2lb, weather trying to warm up, sooner the better.

kayak fishing end of April

been out a good few times on kayaks with clients over the past few days, with some good size pollack to 7lb, bass are a little slow with only small ones to 3lb coming to the rod on lure and fly, need the weather to warm up a bit more and I think we will see much better results for the bass,

28/04/2012 A day on the kayaks

well what a day on the kayaks, I had 4 lads down from the Belfast area, where they had a good days fishing, with the easterly winds it was hard to get some shelter in the waterville area, but we found a little cove and fished for a couple of hours everyone caught fish, all pollack to about 5lb not great but with these winds we done good, all the lads where happy, let the winds change and calm down.


What a week of fishing, we have had for bass and Pollack, I have had people out with me from France, England, Germany, and local anglers from Tarbet in north Kerry, 2 lads from Youghal in the cork area, and father and son from Derry in northern Ireland, first the lad from France, this lad had the biggest bass of the week weight in at only 5lb 8oz not big but it was his biggest bass ever, so that not so bad, next I had 2 lads from England these lads done well on bass and Pollack, biggest bass was only 4lb and Pollack to 6lb they were very happy, lads from Germany also done very well they caught 3 bass and a good few Pollack, local anglers from Kerry done well to, they hooked the most bass and lost a good few their biggest bass was 5lb, 2 lads from youghal in co cork, I had these lads out on kayaks it was tough with the winds, but we managed to get some good Pollack to 6lb, last but not least father and son from Derry they have never been bass fishing before they caught 2 nice bass to 3lb they were very happy, what a week.

02/12/10 holidays

Just came back from Cuba, I was trying a new fly rod out for Airflow, a 8/9 Bluetooth nano 9ft salt water fly rod. When we went out with the guide, we were fishing for bone fish,I caught lots of bone fish and one sting ray of about 40lb on the fly, it was like being hooked to a back of a car, the fish run for 80meters or more,and to my suprise I had the fish landed in 20mins, when I was testing this rod I put it under serious pressure. To land a 40lb stingray was very good, I also landed a bone fish of 17lb estimated, it was 36inch long from tip of nose to fork of tail, this fish on the first run took over 150 meter of line, on the second run 90meters we then saw the fish after 25 mins by this time my arms were dropping off, and a few more mins the fish was landed and a few photos then returned alive, I have been told this bone fish is in the top ten of the world caught on the fly, I am well pleased with the new fly rod well done Airflow, and thank you,{YOU ARE NOT HAVING IT BACK}.

but I still got 100% on all my articles I have done on bass, I am still yet to fail.
I hope it never happens.

Rough wearther but a great day 12/03/08
dispite all the rough wearther, I still managed to get out on the bass on one of my marks
fishing 2 rods with razorfish for bait and frozen black lug on the either rod both rods produced bass 5 in all not big to about 4lb 8oz and all returned alive

I still think we are in for a cracker of a year. tight lines to all

bass bass and more bass

We had a frend russell staying with us for a few nights we managed to get out and do some bass fishing.
On the first cast I caught a bass of 2lb8oz and russell was still setting up.
On my second cast I had another bass of 2lb and I turned round to see russell in a little bit of a mess with line so I stop fishing for a few mins to give him some help.
Then on his first cast he had a bass of 3lb as he could not stop catching bass we had 10 in all in 2 hours.
Fishing the biggest fish was about 4lb and all returned alive,,,,,,,,,,, there has been a clut of bass over the last few days with over 41 bass coming to the rod in the last 4 days,,,,,,,,,,
I went out for a cast today sunday 22/04/07 and spent 30mins fishing and had a bass of 7 1/2lb I have not seen it this good for a number of years I hope it keeps up, tight lines to all.

plenty of bass
I was booked up with a few lads from belfast, none of them have ever caught bass before until they met me.
They booked me for a days guiding with excitment in there eyes. I took them to one of my marks where they bagged up mackerel, pollack, wrasse, coalfish and ling, and then we went on the bass where steven caught 2 bass to 5lb, and then the follwing day they went back to the bass mark and had 4 more bass to 8lb. There was no stoping these lads and also in between they had 2 mullet to 5lb we will be back they said, lads see you soon, tight lines, kevin.
