Brother Nick and Kevin McCartan were on the Twitter machine to let us know about some fine cod fishing they have had around Youghal recently.

While the pair were reluctant to divulge the exact spot, some virtual hypnotism by mentalist Keith Barry had the pair reveal more than they may have wished too.  Having never been night fishing before Keith was keen to get in on the action ahead of his new show “The Dark Side”! Keith and the brothers McCartan will be out after the cod again soon and we’ll let you know how the trip goes when we hear back, though Keith probably knows the outcome already.  In the meantime for those who want to try it for themselves, the best fishing is around an hour before high tide with some lugworm and peeler crab as bait.
