Summer action on Naomh Cartha....

Sandra O'Shea with a 13lb cod
Cobh SAC held their second Master Angler competition of the year last Sunday. Fishing for the day was onboard Naomh Cartha, skippered by Ger Keohane....and, what a day it was!

The weather was great, if somewhat breezy. Beautiful blue skies, hot temps, but a stiff easterly breeze. There's always a messy chop with an easterly breeze and this was the case today. However, Ger reckoned we could manage it and manage it we did. We set off for the fishing grounds off Power Head and drifted the Pollack Rock reef from east to west. From the off the fish were coming onboard. Pollack, cod, ling, cuckoo wrasse, ballan wrasse, pouting, and more....but it was the pollack that were there in numbers with nearly 300 landed. Some of these fish were good fish coming in over 6lbs! In the mix were some good cod with three fish coming in over the 10lb mark!

Ger had a hectic time trying to keep a track of the scores. At the end of the day, Milo Burke from Kilkenny had the best score. Milo had a total of 108 fish for a final score of 1,130pts. In second place was Danny Kane with 77 fish for a score of 820pts. Pat O'Shea was in third place with 72 fish for 742pts.

By day's end the six anglers had landed 349 fish. A great return, a great day....a day to be remembered!!!

If you'd fancy a day out on the Naomh Cartha why not give Ger a ring on 00-353-87-2589448. Check out the Naomh Cartha's facebook page at
