Summer Light Lines....

On Monday evening last we held the second of our summer series of light line comps. To be honest you'd have been forgiven for thinking that it wasn't summer. Monday was more like winter with lashing rain, mist, fod, & wind. Mind you by the time we got the comp under way the weather had cleared somewhat.

Seven anglers were able to make it and were full of enthusiasm when Donie Geary picked them up on the John Boy from Kennedy Pier. First stop was our usual spot in 'Deep Hole.' However, the tide was just too strong and Donie suggested a move. Next stop was just off the channel close to Camden and here the tidal run was more bearable.

All sorts of rigs and all sorts of bait went over the side and soon enough a steady stream of fish came onboard. Dabs were the most plentiful of the fish and most were of a good size. By the end of the comp 54 dabs had been caught out of a total of 102 fish. That gave an average of 15 fish per angler.

Sandra O' Shea came out tops, but was ran close to the line by Ger Brady. Only 20 points separated them; effectively one fish. Sandra had 28 fish for a total of 449 points, whereas Ger had 26 fish for 429 points. In third place was Mick Bennett, with Rob Kelly in fourth. Once again a great craic was had by all.

Our next comp is a Masters Boat competition and this is on Sunday 17th July. This is followed by our third summer light line comp on Monday 25th July. Pencil those into your diary and don't forget to book yourself in with Mary on 021-4812167 well beforehand.
