Winter chill fails to deter light line anglers....

On Sunday 5th December Cobh SAC held its second light line competition of the Winter season. Despite the absolute freezing conditions, 7 anglers were brave enough to venture out on the John Boy, skippered by Donie Geary.

These light line competitions have been blessed with good fishing and this one was to be no different. Over the 5 hours fishing 217 fish were landed giving each angler an average of over 30 fish. The mainstay of the catch were codling and they were of a good stamp too with many averaging 3 to 5lbs.

There were also plenty of whiting with many fish going to 2.5lbs and plenty of dabs also with fish going close to specimen size. Anthony Austin from Crosshaven SAC came in for a fierce slagging as he managed a conger on lugworm of all things!

Winner of the competition was Martin Perryman of both Cobh SAC & Crosshaven SAC. However, Sandra O' Shea of Cobh SAC ran him a close second, with Danny Kane coming in in third spot. All competitiors were glad of the soup when they got back to the Commodore Hotel. Mind you the constant action made sure that anglers didn't have a chance to get cold. Roll on the next light line comp in January!!!!
