Aidan takes early lead in Tubertini West Coast Shore League

March 30th, 2017 | by

The postponed first leg of the Tubertini West Coast Shore League was held on Renvyle beach last Saturday evening, with fishing from 6-10pm. 15 senior anglers were able to make the competition, postponed 4 weeks because of stormy weather in late February, and hosted by Galway Bay SAC. Fishing on the night was reasonably good, with 93 fish caught, including coalfish, dogfish, rockling and pollack. The winner on the night was Aidan O’Halloran from Lisdoonvarna-Fanore SAC, with 19 fish for 450 points. Second place went to a new face on the competition scene, Remigijus Zukauskas from Galway Bay SAC, with 7 fish for 269 points. Shane Gilvarry from Killala BC was third, with 10 fish for 269 points. The winning junior angler was Cian Deane from Galway Buccaneers SAC, with 3 fish for 120 points. Second in the juniors was Rory O’Sullivan (Galway Bay) and third was Billy Gilvarry (Killala).

Aidan now takes an early lead in the shore league with 101 points, but with 7 legs to come the lead positions will be hotly contested. With 6 of 8 scores to count, there is still plenty of time to join the competition, and the next leg is due to be held on May 27th at Roundstone.

Galway Bay SAC have been very active in developing new members and helping them improve their angling skills this year, and ran a rig-tying evening last week in Galway Aquarium, where ne members learned how to tie some of the more important traces used in sea angling. Senior members Pete Atkins and Brian Reidy were on hand to demonstrate and help with hands-on learning, which will be a great help to get these anglers catching more fish. Further training sessions are planned, and the clubs always welcomes new members and inquiries. For more information contact club secretary Brian Reidy at coryeire@yahoo.com
