Well Anglesea anglers boarded the John Boy at 10AM Crosshaven and we set off promptly on a very fine, calm & warm Sunday morning May 20th.

We made directly for the Ling Rocks a well-known and frequented mark at this this time of the year.

Shortly after arriving we began our first drift with the lads in high spirits and strange references being made to window dressings, we were off the mark with fair sized ling and cod with odd Pollock and wrasse being boated at pleasantly regular intervals, the drifting carried on producing a good mix of species with some nice Ling and Cod being boated.

After a bite to eat and Big John getting his much revered rocket soup we went to anchor is search of Conger, slow enough to start with Big John soon got us off the mark.

A few congers followed along with the odd Ling, Pollock, Pouting & Cod.

After a move in the late afternoon the Ling came on strong for a spell and some conger and few more species just for good measure.

Overall a very good days fishing on the John Boy with Donie.

Winner of the boat on the John Boy with a very respectable 397 points Michael (Conger) Healy with a good mixture of species including Conger, Ling, Pollock, Cod, Pouting, Gurnard & Cuckoo Wrasse
