January Light Lines Comp - The Results

Cobh SAC's second Light Line Comp of the winter season got under way last Sunday 22nd January. There was a high demand for places and we nearly got three boats out. However, we didn't get quite enough and some anglers, unfortunately, had to stay ashore (among them Cobh SAC Treasurer, Pat O' Shea, and vice-Chairman, Danny Kane). If you intend to fish a Light Line Comp its imperative that you contact either Mary Geary at 021-4812167 or Danny Kane on 086-8161946 by the Tuesday evening leading upto the Comp.

In any case 16 anglers got out and fished onboard the John Boy and the Naomh Cartha. Although, there was a strong NW breeze at first, conditions settled down and it turned out to be a fine day. The anglers soon got in the swing of things and, although, the fishing wasn't as good as before Christmas, there was still plenty of fish to keep all the anglers occupied.

In total there were 588 fish caught, making it an average of 37 fish per angler. The breakdown was: - 348 whiting; 234 dabs; 1 lsd, 3 poor cod; 1 plaice; and 1 scorpion fish. The scorpion fish was a bit of a monster measuring just over 32 cms and weighing over 1lb. We've sent it off to the Irish Specimen Fish Committee in the hope that they may set up a specimen category for this fish.

1. Martin Perryman, 98 Fish, 1392 pts, 100%

  1. I together with my pals happened to be viewing the nice tips and tricks located on the website and all of a sudden came up with a horrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the website owner for those secrets. All the young men are already warmed to read all of them and already have pretty much been making the most of those things. Appreciation for simply being very helpful and then for deciding on this kind of quality themes millions of individuals are really needing to be informed on. My honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to sooner.
