With the wind still blowing hard I decided that the best option would be to stay inland and find sheltered water. Local knowledge told me that roach are amassing in large numbers, getting ready for their spawning run.
I am eagerly awaiting the lengthening days. It seems that since Christmas my fishing time has been limited. I did manage to get out on Sunday though…….
So back I was looking at the Shannon again. I wanted to take advantage of a flat calm river and try to target a small pier for conger, convinced that the area might shelter one or two.
