Helping your clients catch bass like this is the best job in the world

When it fires out here in Kerry it’s quite something, and especially when you are fishing literally miles of the most perfect bass ground you could imagine yet John has never seen another angler there - and our lads caught some crackers yesterday afternoon. Stunning dark backed rock bass from acres of shallow broken ground, running hard against some tight drags, everybody caught nice fish, and the best of the day was Dave’s 73cm fish which was in as fine condition as a bass can be. Great call on where to go John!

And what were the lures that did the damage yesterday? Have a guess. Yep, the 6’’ OSP DoLive Stick - the lads had some fish swirl on their surface lures, but no actual takes. Clip on a DoLive Stick and bang, fish on, indeed Nigel landed three bass well over 60cms in about twenty minutes on those frigging killer soft plastics. Sorry I haven’t got more time to tell you all about it, but it’s hectic stuff out here in Kerry and this co-guiding work - and I absolutely love it. We haven’t sorted out our dates for 2018 yet, but if you would like a chance at bass like these and want me to notify you when we know our plans, please go here and fill out the contact form.
