Yep, weather down west was good except for a Force 9 gale warning!! Otherwise we still found some nice big ones around the Fastnet!! Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Cork. Caught a few mackerel myself outside Baltimore Harbour over the weekend too, they might as well have been jumping into the boat!!

This may not work as its my first time trying this but here is a link to some video footage of us doing a few jumps at the mouth of Baltimore Harbour. No music I'm afraid (copyrights???) It probably looks very amateur but its my first try so here goes.

Nick, I've sent the photos and video to Laurence at Barnet, but hes away until September so they won't be on the site til then.

Jackeens, Yes we had great craic making the video, and no we didn't lose the person up the bow, he just got quite scared!!

Gavin, thats a nice pic of your Hysucat there. Will definitely post a pic or two as soon as I get the chance.
