Spring Cod

The settled weather earlier this week prompted a few of Cobh SAC anglers to get out on the water. On-board Danny Kane's boat, 'Sandra Anne', the lads had spring cod on their minds. Danny brought them to a closely guarded mark of his not far from Roches Point and they weren't disappointed. Over a three hour session the three anglers managed over four dozen healthy codling. The best of the fish fell to veteran Cobh SAC angler, George Stockley, who managed this beauty of 8lbs. Indeed, George certainly out-fished the other two, a measure of his vast experience. George just recently celebrated his 81st birthday and its great to see this well regarded angler enjoying his angling to the full!!!

Its great also to see this kind of fishing in the lead up
to this weekend's fundraiser for the Irish Boat Angling Team and for those who are participating, just to let you know, the lads had the codling on various hokkai and Shamrock Tackle rigs, baited with mackeral. Here's hoping the fishing this Saturday will be just as successful!
