Marc Cowling is a thoughtful, perceptive shore angling guide who has an extensive knowledge of bass and other fishing in the south Devon area. His passion is lure fishing for the bass which lurk around the rocky shoreline and in this feature, he outlines the steps required to locate a new mark.
Since the fishery was first discovered by members of the Caithness Sea Angling Association in the early 90’s the north coast porbeagle shark fishing has quietly simmered away off the radar. Top Scottish rod Scott Gibson tells the tale of a recent couple of days out of Scrabster with Chris Bennett hunting these massive, top predators.
It is the end of November as I sit down to pen this article. There is already snow on the ground and there is a strong, cold wind blowing out of the north. The Atlantic is no place to be at this time of the year if you don’t have to be. Not here in New England at any rate.
Without a doubt the waters of the New England coast offer some of the best saltwater fishing anywhere in the world. With stripers, blues, tuna, cod, haddock and a host of others, who could ask for more?
The European Federation of Sea Anglers‘ 2016 Boat Championships were hosted by EFSA Ireland and co-hosted by Cobh Sea Angling Club at Cobh, County Cork from the 16th to the 23rd of September. The event was last held in Cobh in 2008 when it was adjudged to have been in the top 3 Championships ever.
After 3 years’ preparation EFSA Ireland were delighted to welcome 16 nations represented by over 100 anglers to the event.
