Belmont enjoy good canal fishing in their Open at Shannon Harbour


Belmont Anglers fished their Open on Sunday at Shannon Harbour. The weather was beautiful all 12 anglers enjoyed the day. Everyone caught a few fish with some good weights for this canal venue being returned.

Most of the anglers fished the pole but breezy conditions saw some opt for the float rod. The same breezy conditions put a lovely ripple on the water, which was a little coloured and no doubt this helped with the good fishing on what was fairly bright day. Some lovely tench, good roach and few skimmers featured in the catches which helped Ollie Doyle take a big lead to win on 13lb 14oz.

The following are the winners

  • Ollie Doyle 13lb 14oz
  • Jason Delahunty 7lb 6oz
  • Stephen Quinn 3lb 8oz
  • John Howell 2lb 10oz
