Big bass all the rage for shore anglers

Shore bass anglers have been getting among the fish on Ireland’s East coast, especially around the Louth/Meath coastline.

One of the very best was taken by Sam Rennicks from Navan, who had a stunning 11lb 10oz specimen bass from Mornington beach one morning early last week.

A rapture-pro shallow diving lure was used to tempt the fish, which was released back to fight another day after a quick photograph.

A raft of decent other fish have been taken on ragworm hookbaits.
