Saturday 26 August saw our shore anglers compete in matchday five of our shore league

Saturday 26 August saw our shore anglers compete in matchday five of our shore league sponsored by Daiwa.

The venue was Carnlough and while conditions were OK the fish weren't there in the numbers that they should have been. This venue is usually won with fifteen plus fish in late Summer. Usually a big bag of dogs with a few flounder in the mix wins a zone but everyone had to work hard last night for very little reward, so those who managed more than a couple of fish done really well. Highlight of the evening was young Niall McCook beating most of the field including his Dad with five fish.

Here's our recorders report.

Venue: Carnlough 1800-2300hrs

Tide/sea state: fished 1.5hrs up and 3.5 down. Sea was relatively calm with a lot of weed which caused occasional problems.

Species caught: flounder, whiting, coalie and dogfish.

Zone A

1st Andrew Logan 6 fish 275pt

2nd Drew Ferguson 4 fish 220pt

3rd Niall McCook 5 fish 135pt

1st Harry McKee 4 fish 164pt

2nd Gary Mccurry 2 fish 120pt

3rd Paddy O'boyle 3 fish 74pt

4th Barry Platt 2 fish 63pt

Longest flat: Stephen Hodge 28cm flounder.

Longest round: 18cm whiting. Tied Mike Henry, Paddy O'Boyle and Harry Sr.

Cash was paid for 1st, 2nd and longest fish prizes while tackle sponsored by Daiwa was given for 3rd and 4th.

Our next outing is the NIFSA Two Day open which is open to non NIFSA members. The comp will take place 16-17 September with venues in Lough Foyle and Lough Swilly being fished. We currently have anglers coming from Republic of Ireland, England, Scotland and Poland to fish so it should be good craic. If you would like to take part please message the page.
