We hadn’t managed to get in a tench session so far this year so Aidan Cox, Joe White and myself decided that we would bait somewhere for a couple of days. The plan was to travel up a few evenings after work and bait up with the bic boat.
I called our good friend Dylan Condron to ask how was the fishing lately and tell him our plan. Dylan suggested we get in touch with a friend of his Seamus Smith who provides an excellent prebaiting and pike guiding service.
We were only too happy to not have to drive up the few evenings beforehand so this seemed the perfect solution. I got in touch with Seamus and we hatched a plan to meet at 3.30 am on Saturday morning.
After meeting Seamus we were soon heading out along twisting narrow roads just as the sky was starting to lighten up. Arriving at our destination we wasted no time in getting the gear down to the swim.
Seamus had prebaited the previous couple of nights and we were all gunning to go. The service Seamus provides is second to none and he also had our bait waiting for us all in top condition. For anglers who travel from around the country or further afield it is a perfect solution.
We ended up with each of us having a pb tench and Joe also getting his pb bream so it exceeded all expectations and we will definitely be getting Seamus to help us again. My best tench was 6lb 2oz, Aidan had his best at 6lb 10oz and Joe had a tench of 6lb 2oz and a bream of 7lb 2oz
That even Dylan and Damien McCann came up and joined us. It was some craic that night and a pleasure to see the lads in action as they brought in fish after fish and we picked up a few tips.
To contact Seamus please get in touch on his Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Ernecast-1308069715907255/ as we couldn’t recommend it highly enough and thanks to Dylan and Damien.
