A good mix of fish at Ballyquin for West Cork and District SAC


Pete Davis of West Cork and District SAC writes on their recent club match on Ballyquin Beach:

We fished Ballyquin beach at the weekend. Dogfish showed up from the first cast to a few angler’s. Most fish caught on the night were dogs with the odd bullhuss, bass, poor cod and cod showing up. The best fish of the night was caught by Jason Santry with a nice smoothhound of 92cm.

Noah Tahran won the junior section with a mixture of dog’s and a cod. Well done Noah.
The senior section was won by Troy Francis with 12 fish 600 pts made up of dog’s, well done Troy.

Second place with 11 fish, 550 pts was Stephen O Donovan and in third place with 11 fish 529 pts was JP Molloy.

Good luck!

The club are delighted to have six members traveling to the Home-nations in Weymouth July 4th-8th to represent Ireland. It’s a great achievement for us.

We have Liam Davis representing the U/16 squad, Noah Tahran the U/21 squad and in the senior Men’s squad we have Derek Kenrick (manager) , JP Molloy (captain) , Stephen O Donovan and David O Sullivan.

The very best of luck lad’s and we hope ye take home gold.
