Adrian Browne of Oaklands Lake in New Ross reports that this weekend’s match was a great event which saw Thomas Quinlan, 15, beat off stiff competition from his father George to secure victory. Thomas caught all carp and finished with a bag of 57 lb from peg 48. He was fishing at 10m on the pole, catching on corn and soft pellet.
Adrian says the lake is fishing well for the time of year and the better fishing in the deeper pegs at the shop end of the lake.
