Plastic Fantastic - Kerry Wrasse...

I'm just back from another trip to the wonderful Dingle Peninsula in Co. Kerry, I visit this place for a few days each year and find myself enjoying it more and more each time. It's truly a fantastic part of the country to visit, breathtaking scenery, great fishing, the culture, the people, the pubs, what a place.

I arranged to meet up with my friend Tomek who some of you may know from his blog Sea Bass Hunting. He had a couple of days off during the week and the plan was to try a couple of marks for both Bass and Wrasse. The bass fishing got off to a bit of a slow start but the wrasse were as obliging as ever, munching their way through all sorts of soft plastic lures. They're a great species to target on lures and the wrasse here are a decent stamp of fish with many in the 2-3lb range. I had great fun targeting them over the week and I'm already looking forward to my next visit.
