Mark Gannon reports from Courtmacsherry:

A wrecking trip planned to target conger from the offshore wrecks had to be cancelled due to the strong southwesterly winds, rather than cancel they said that they’d take their chances with a trip inshore to target Common Skate.

Details: Male, length 1.70 m & wingspan 1.25 m, tagged and released.
