Sun shines on South Shore SAC for their latest Master Angler leg


South Shore SAC were lucky with the weather on the most recent leg of their Master Angler competition at Roney Point, as they were greeted by a rare fine day amidst the numerous days of wind and rain in recent weeks. So the 37 anglers that turned out for the event were able to fish in near-perfect conditions of weather and water, as a nice tinge in the water coupled with a high tide promised some good fishing.

And the promise held up well, as anglers were into fish from the off, with whiting and dabs present in good numbers with a few bass on the move too. The numbers of fish remained pretty consistent throughout the match, and 9 anglers ended up with 20 or more fish by the end of the competition. This meant it was tight at the top as the competition entered its final stages, and Cian Corcoran pipped Eammon Bermingham by a couple of points to win Zone A. Meanwhile Gavin Fogarty had a bit more to spare when winning Zone B ahead of Ciaran Fogerty and Alby Allan. Aaron Willet topped the junior section with a fine total of 9.
