Fishing should be interesting this year as a couple of species are making a come back in the harbour. Last year saw a number of small tope landed and many boats had catches of smoothhound. This year already 1 boat had 12 spurdog in a single trip. Everything was verified as the catches were part of Cobh SAC Master Angler Competition fished on 12 May.

Cork Harbour spurdog – another species making a comeback in the area?
