Just before the weather went completely south, fishing on the reefs off Cork Harbour was quite good. Skipper Jim Linehane of the Deora De reported that in late July, early August he had some great trips. One of these was with Jordaan Johan and a group from Shannon.
They had great cracking with cod in double figures, ling in double figures, and some reasonable conger. Best of the cod was a whopper of 17lbs. Apparently, it was the angler's first ever cod....what a fish to break your duck with! The best ling tipped the scales at 18lb and was the best fish of the day.
Hopefully, when the weather settles down Jim will be able to get the Deora De out for a few more trips. If you'd fancy a day's angling on the Deora De then you can contact Jim on 00-353-86-4091389 or, for more details, have a look at his website Deora De Deep Sea Angling Charters.
