The Belmont Anglers’ May Open was fished at Shannon Harbour on 12 June in beautiful conditions. The warm sunshine made for a very relaxing day at the waters edge, but maybe a bit more cloud cover would would have allowed for better catches.
The event was well attended with 17 anglers taking part. The Belmont Open winner was John Howell. John had 7lb 11oz and finished well ahead of second place Stephen Quinn who had 5lb 8 of bream and roach.
Although catches were not huge there were some good fish in the nets and some individual fish were estimated at 4lbs.
