Just a quick reminder that our next light lines competition is on next Sunday 22nd Jan. Fishing will be from 9:30am till 2:30pm each day with boats departing from Kennedy Pier, Cobh at 9am. Boats used will be from the Cork Harbour Angling Hub charter fleet. The entry fee is €40, and  it’s great value!

An amendment to the rules this year, which we brought in for the last competition, is that only the mainline needs to be 15lb bs or less. If you are using a shockleader it can be heavier line, as can be your rig main body and snoods. And with cod to 10.5lb in the Harbour this month you can expect some good fish to be taken.

If you are fishing on Sunday please book in with Mary (021-4812167) before tonight.

The remaining competition dates are:

  • Sunday 19th Febuary 2012
  • Sunday 25th March 2012
  • Sunday 22th April 2012

Also, for those anglers travelling, we’ve negotiated a special deal with the Commodore Hotel if overnight accommodation is required – Bed & breakfast will be available at €29 per person.
