Cracking Perch from Derravaragh

Cracking Perch from Derravaragh

Some cracking Perch are coming from Derravaragh during the hot spell of weather. Marty Smith landed some super fish trolling small Rapala Lures, with the Ultra Light Minnow silver and purple working best.

Check out the Shimano 6000 RB Baitrunner Reel in your local tackle centre. It’s a serious bit of kit. I put it to the test last week and had some nice pike on the troll. The reel can be checked out on my angling site.

On Friday night  Ennell Anglers will hold the Jimmy Nea Cup for trout. Fishing is from 7pm-11pm, with weigh-in at Whitebridge Bay . Boat and engine hire available at Lilliput.

Kevin Crowley of the WRFB tells us that some super salmon are coming from the Galway fisheries. Local angler Bert Lynch had a 7lbs fish on shrimp, while Moycullan angler Neil Spellacy had nice grilse on the fly. Colm Adams from Dublin was also in the thick of the action, and banked two grilse on Shrimp. Check out the Galway Salmon Fisheries on
