Disappointing couple of sessions to report.
Last evening on Bantry Airport Strand - it looked ideal for a thornback ray but the session tuned into a doggie-fest - not for the first time at that venue it has to be said.
Then today on a north coast rock mark - more of the same! It was a bite-a-chuck on big baits intended for conger and huss and I had several double shots like this on smaller baits.
When I managed to catch two on a single hook rig (when one hooked itself, shook the bait up the trace and another one gorged it down) I thought it was time to give it best. I put on some mackerel feathers and salvaged the session with a dozen mackerel for tea and future-bait.
I'm away back in UK for a while shortly - hope the dogs will have thinned out by the time I'm back.
