Fair weather brings foul fishing for South Shore SAC…


Having experienced plenty of foul days over the winter months, the 27 anglers who turned up to fish the 2nd leg of the South Shore SAC Master Angler at Roney Point were greeted by unusually clement weather, with mild temperatures and a gentle westerly breeze. What could go wrong…?

Well, plenty as it seems, as anglers were left looking at each other in puzzlement as their first casts failed to produce any bites, and so it continued with their second casts and their third casts…

It seems the fish prefer the lousy weather after all, and while the turn of the tide did bring an uptick in catches over the final hour, unfortunately there were still a few blank scorecards at the end of the competition.

Dogs made the difference on the day

It turned out to be a battle of two Fogarty’s, as Gavin Fogarty steamed to the top of Zone A with 9 fish on his card. Brother Ciaran performed similar feats on Zone B, with his 10 fish leaving him top of the Zone, and just pipping his brother to the overall win.
