Surf Casting Images of Co. Wexford

Reports of bass on the south Wexford beaches tempted me to travel down on Saturday evening. Digging lugworm in Rosslare I planned to fish a rising tide on Rostoonstown. As per usual this season there were plenty of flounder and no bass.

The fine evening attracted lots of local people to the strand including a wedding party and about fifty mackerel fishers.

The lack of bass was more then made up for by the sunset.

With no bass for the evening and two dozen lugworm left over I headed for a local strand early Sunday morning.

Bright, warm, and fresh, a north westerly breeze blew and the sea was calm and clear. A flounder and a smooth hound livened up the morning. It was good to be out.
