Fishing in Cork Harbour
Cork Harbour is one of the largest natural harbours in the
world. It offers sheltered fishing in all but the strongest
winds and there is a wealth of species that can be found inside
the harbour. During small boat competitions, nearly all of the
species can be caught within the safety of the harbour. There is
something for every type of sea angler - specimens are common
and there are several Irish records that have been caught here.
Again during 2009, specimen bass, blonde ray, gilthead bream,
golden gray mullet, lesser spotted dogfish, red gurnard, thick
lipped mullet and plaice were all caught and recorded in the
Irish Specimen Fish Committee's 2009 report. Charter boats
working outside the harbour capture specimen coal fish, conger,
cod, ling, pollock and wreck fish every year.
