Good deep sea angling for Galway Buccaneers Sea Angling Club
September 27th, 2012 | by Paul Bourke
Conor Mountaine, chairman of the Galway Buccaneers Sea Angling Club reported on the sixth and final competition of their Boat Master Angler Series sponsored by Galway Bay Fishing, which was held recently. Conor wishes to offer his congratulations to Steve Turner on winning the day. With the weather forecast predicting fresh westerly winds it was up to skipper Kevin MacGabhann to produce the goods and yet again he delivered. Fishing out of Rossaveal, the angling was good from the start with plenty of different species coming to the boat. Steve was picking off species after species and clocking up the points, followed closely by Declan Horan who was also chalking up a good number of species and was just beaten to take second place on the day.
The overall winner of the inaugural Galway Buccaneers SAC Boat Master Angler Series was the young man from Achill, Danny Sweeney. Danny fished very well throughout the series winning three days outright and his commitment and dedication was there for all to see as he fished hard and was a most deserving winner. From all your fellow club members a hearty congratulations on becoming the Galway Buccaneers S.A.C. Boat Master Angler for 2012.
A big thank you has to go to our skipper Kevin MacGabhann and his crew for looking after us during the year. He always had a plan of action for each day and was not afraid to burn some diesel to ensure “you’re on the fish” and on top of all that he sponsored our Master Angler Series for which we are all much obliged.
