The settled weather earlier this week prompted a few of Cobh SAC anglers to get out on the water. On-board Danny Kane’s boat, ‘Sandra Anne’, the lads had spring cod on their minds. Danny brought them to a closely guarded mark of his not far from Roches Point and they weren’t disappointed.

Over a three hour session the three anglers managed over four dozen healthy codling.

The best of the fish fell to veteran Cobh SAC angler, George Stockley, who managed this beauty of 8lbs. Indeed, George certainly out-fished the other two, a measure of his vast experience.

George just recently celebrated his 81st birthday and its great to see this well regarded angler enjoying his angling to the full!!!

The lads had the codling on various hokkai and Shamrock Tackle rigs, baited with mackeral.

Over the weekend well known angler, Jim Clohessey and Kevin Murphy of Bella Vista took one of the Bella Vista boats out for a spin and had some lovley cod on soft plastics.
