West Cork and District SAC fished the second leg of their midweek league last Wednesday…

On Wednesday evening (27 March) we held the second leg of our midweek bait supplied league. Youghal beach was the original venue however it was unfishable so ferrypoint was used as the back up venue. It was lines in at 6:30pm -and we fished for 3 hours until lines out was called at 9:30pm.

whiting and flounder

Fishing on the night was poor overall. Barry O’Rourke on peg 12 and Troy Francis on peg 13 had the best of the fishing. Troy lead the way for the first two hours but a strong finish from Barry with three fish in the last hour would seal the win for him. Whiting, pollack, coalies and flounder made up the catches.

  • 1st Barry O’Rourke – 6 fish – 169pts
  • 2nd Troy Francis – 5 fish – 132pts
  • 3rd Denis Duggan -2 fish – 67pts
  • 4th Danny O’Shea – 1 fish – 31pts
  • 5th Stephen O’Donovan -1 fish -24pts

Well done Barry Denis Duggan on peg 5 won the big fish pool on the night with a 32cm Coalfish which was worth €70:50 and took 3rd place over all.

A big thank you to Noel Kavanagh from the Tackle Shop for supplying us with bait and for sponsoring a raffle prize for this leg. Barry O Rourke was also the winner of the raffle.

Go fishing…

The final leg of the midweek league takes place on Youghal beach on Wednesday April 10th. More information is available on the WCAD midweek league FB group page.
