July 2015 Manx Sea Fishing Report

I was away the beginning of the month but heard the weather was rubbish, the rest of July seemed to continue in the same way. We did eventually get 1 boat trip out but it was both short and very rough. However the fishing was superb. The islands waters were literally alive with Callig, Coalfish and Wrasse. And that was on the west coast. From what I heard the east coast was even better…when people did manage to get out which was very few and far between. Seriously I can’t remember a summer like it, the last 2 were bad but 2015 seems to have broke all the records. Atleast it seems to have given the fish a rest and once you are bored of catching the usual 3-4lb Callig (Pollack) there are plenty of 7lb+ fish out there as well.

The other bonus for July was that the Mackerel appeared just about on time this year and in much larger numbers than we’ve had recently. With this in mind I was expecting a bumper Tope year but the word on the street is that isn’t quite the case, there’s still the odd one turning up but no real monster numbers. Again Ying & Yang, there do appear to be more Bass getting caught. All we can hope is that August brings some better weather…and seeing as how I’m writing this on the 18th you can guess how that has gone 🙂
