We headed out with Kit Dunne on Sunday in search of smoothhounds.  We had a few small hounds and a thornback ray to start the day off and then most of us decided to fish big baits for the chance of a big hound.  Craig Murphy had two specimen fish in around 10lb, Jeff Nolan had one of 15.75lbs and I finished the day with a late specimen of 18.3 lbs.


Evan saved the best for last – a smoothie of 18.3lb


Go fishing…
