North wind cools the action for South Shore SAC


Northerly and easterly winds usually put a curse on all things fishing so when South Shore SAC were faced with a North-easterly blow for the second round of their Leinster League, it’s fair to say that expectations were not too high. 59 anglers turned out on a cool day as the competition was split over two zones, one in Ballinouart, and one in Morriscastle.

Fishing at this time of the year can be tough, and when faced with a nasty wind, it can be tougher still, and fish were very hard got on the day. In some sections, baits were coming back without having been touched at all.

Of the two zones, Morriscastle proved the better on the day, and Noel Fogarty managed to bag a creditable 11 fish to come top of the standings. Over on Ballinouart, it only took three fish for Des Farelly to win the zone and continue his good run of form. Full report and results are posted on the South Shore SAC Facebook page.
