September Bassing

September holds great promise when it comes to Bass fishing. Last season I had some great success, beating my personal best twice in two weeks ….. this season however I was less fortunate with the weather – but we battled on.

North winds made it less than ideal for fishing the open coast but with some moving around and putting in the hours we managed to track down a few fish.

No monsters this month but it was great to see that any fish we caught were in prime condition. Plump and they all scrapped really well.

Hard plugs produced a few fish but as always when the going gets tough we resorted to soft plastics and quickly got some results.

The 120 mm Fiiish Black Minnow continues to do the business and the Bass simply can not resist.

Meeting friends

It is always great to catch up with friends and acquaintances on the coast – it adds to the over all experience and there is nothing better than sharing a coffee with some enthusiastic anglers and talking all things lure fishing.

It was great this time to meet up with a friend of mine Nick Mackrory on his first trip over to Ireland. Nick runs Bass Go Deeper the creator of the Plug Belt and Plug Rack featured here on my blog.

We sat and gossiped about lures, the season past and what the coming months hold before going our separate ways. Very jealous that he has a week of roaming around and exploring this stunning coastline for the first time – Tight Lines!

Who knows if I will get the opportunity to come back down this season but all being well I will squeeze in a trip before the year is out.
