Weather conditions were well suited with a breeze picking up to the angler backs. Rain stayed away for most of the day thankfully. Anglers fished 2 hrs each side of High tide.
A nice starfish for young Danny Harty! Interesting but unfortunately not a counting fish.
Congratulations to our junior member Danny Harty who took 1st place in the junior section with 4 dogfish; Ailbhe Hartnett took second place. That’s the first win of the year for Danny – well done!
