The Lough Muckno Festivals Group held the first of their 2023 Feedermasters qualifiers at the weekend on Lough Muckno. The event saw slightly fewer anglers than expected, due in part to an expectation of fewer fish to be had in mid June.

Confident that the venue would produce, organisers made sure that the event went ahead and bumper weights were recorded throughout most of the 2 twelve man sections.
The overall winner, with a magnificent 33.360 kgs, was Neil Keane off 161, followed by Piotr Horbinski off 228 Yellow Island on just short of 13kgs.
Some significant weights were recorded on each section with a number of weights of 10 kg or thereabouts brought to the scales.
Qualifiers were
  • A. Neil Keane
  • B Piotr Horbinski
