The members of South Shore SAC hit Morriscastle Beach last week for the latest round of their master angler competition. They were targeting flounder, and anglers were hopeful their draw would put them on a decent mark as the fishing can be very dependent on your position on the beach.

The weather was nice on the day for a change, with sunshine and light winds making it an easy day on the beach. The flounder proved to be active enough, with many anglers doing well as the tide flooded, but bites began to slow as soon as the tide started to ebb. However, Eamon Bermingham, who had struggled up to this point, suddenly hit a winning streak, landing 23 flounder in the space of half an hour to shoot to the top of the leaderboard.
