Cahore Point,
Co. Wexford.

Cahore which can be accessed off the R742 Gorey to Wexford Road at Ballygarret, is an increasingly popular small boat fishing centre. The local slipway can be very busy in summertime but it enables small boats to reach quality fishing for tope, smoothhound, spurdog, and various species of ray. Bass fishing in this area can be excellent with freelined sandeel providing good opportunities. Generally boat fishing is over the sand banks and gullies which are located up to 4 miles offshore, however this area should not be approached in easterly winds of force 4 or over as the water becomes very disturbed and potentially dangerous on these occasions. The best of the fishing starts in April with the arrival of predatory species such as tope and smoothound. These are followed by ray, bullhuss and dogfish. Annual returns of specimen fish from this location bear testimony to the quality of the angling to be found here.
