1st Masters comp of the year...

Well after last month's masters comp got blown out, last Sunday's masters comp turned out to be the first of the year. Not that conditions had improved much; it turned out to be quite dirty as one or two of the fishing party will readily attest to. Having said that the fishing was not too bad, with 9 species landed.

Ian O' Shea, skippering the John Boy in Donie's absence, brought the nine anglers, who checked in, to the Smiths. Fresh bait was extremely scarce but that didn't put the congers off which readily took the frozen variety. The pic above and over shows Martin O' Leary and Ger Brady get to grips with the slimey buggers.

Plenty of pollack and cod were also caught. The pic below is of Noel Kavanagh with a medium sized pollack. Danny Kane is also holding up the best cod of the day.

Results went Danny's way as he had the best bag of the day. Danny had 29 fish for a points total of 419; almost twice his nearest rival. Noel Kavanagh came second with 15 fish and 217 points. Ger Brady came third, with Martin O' Leary in fourth place.

A total of 85 fish were caught, which included: 37 pollack, 12 ling, 11 coalfish, 1 cod, 5 conger, 1 lsd, 10 pouting, 2 poor cod, and 6 cuckoo wrasse.

Our next outing is a light lines competition on Monday evening, the 20th June. Fishing is from 6pm to 9:30pm, so book yourself in with Mary on 021-4812167; come on, you know its good for ya!
