Doggies swing the balance in South Shore SAC competition


Fourty four anglers from South Shore SAC were back on the beaches at the weekend for the latest round of the Leinster League. As has become the norm this winter, their original plan to fish Morriscastle had to be scrapped due to high water, so they headed off to fish split zones on Roney Point and Ballinoulart.

Well sheltered…

Fishing was good from the first cast, with whiting, dabs, flounder and doggies all coming in in quick succession. Roney Point was the place to be as anglers stationed there were getting multiple hook ups on most casts. Over on Ballinoulart fishing was slower, but those that opted to chuck it long were rewarded with some better fishing, including the odd doggie.

But the winner on the day came from Roney Point, as Alby Allan landed a nice dogfish on his final cast to take the zone and overall win with 44 fish, with Thomas Keogh running him very close with 42 fish to give him second place. Over in Ballinoulart, the dogs made the difference, and Ciaran Fogarty won the zone with 15 fish.
