First bass after 50-year wait

This cracking 5lb bass is the first example of the species that Nils Roring has caught for 50 years, so you can imagine his delight at boating the fine specimen during a guided trip off the coast of Cork.

Nils made the historic catch just a few minutes into a session with Richie Ryan, from Eire Bass, aboard their craft Sea Hawk. The trip was booked as a surprise by Nils’ son Robin, who said:

“Fifty years is a long time to wait for a bass but we won’t be waiting as long again because we’ve decided to book Richie again soon!”
