Menapia Sea Angling Club headed to Coombs for the latest round of their club competition. The venue is well known for producing wrasse, and anglers had to hone in on the rock and kelp beds to effectively target these colourful species.

Fishing was tough for the first hour, but as the tide started to slow, the wrasse started to appear and anglers started to see bends in their rods. Brian Cantwell made the most of his opportunities to land 12 fish, including four wrasse over 42cm and that was enough to get him top spot on the day. Conor Byrne finished second, also with 12 fish and Brendan Wall in 3rd hit the 12 fish mark too.

Wrasse or goldfish…?
