Specimen Coalfish

Cobh SAC held the first of their Master Boat Angler competitions this Saturday. Fishing aboard the Naomh Cartha, club member, Sandra O' Shea, had this fine specimen coalfish. The fish weighed 20lbs when landed, but when weighed 6 hours later, on a certified scales, it came in at 18.5lbs. Still a fine fish though. The fish was caught on one of Ger Keohane's marks east of the Pollack Rock and is an excellent fish for a reef caught fish. For a full report read here Cobh SAC are holding three more Master Angler comps. Anyone is welcome to fish them. If you are interested please contact Club Secretary, Mary Geary, on 021 - 4812167.
