Xmas Light Line Comp - the result!

Well done to Sylvester Skowronski, Cobh SAC who won the first of this winter's light line competitions. Sylvester is pictured over with one of the many trebles he landed during the day's fishing.

Fishing was excellent with over a 1000 fish landed between the 15 anglers, making it an average of 70 fish per angler.

The main species caught were whiting and dab with a good percentage of whiting over the 2lb mark and a good proportion of dabs over the 1lb mark, with one or two touching specimen.

Most effective baits on the day were mackeral and lug. Amazingly, crab didn't have much of an impact.

The final placings were: - 1st Sylvester Sko
wronski Cobh SAC 111 fish 100% 1662pts; 2nd Martin Perryman Cobh SAC 103 fish 100% 1420 pts; & 3rd Danny Kane Cobh SAC 109 fish 95.5% 1588pts.
The final tally of fish were 690 whiting; 342 dabs; 3 lsd; 1 cod; 14 poor cod; & 1 scad.
