This weekend passed saw the start of our annual Summer Species Hunt League

This weekend passed saw the start of our annual Summer Species Hunt League were anglers target one particular species over a 48hr period with the only stipulation being that the target fish are caught on rod and line within N.I.

This weekend the target fish was plaice with most anglers venturing to the beaches and rocky outcrops in the Redbay area.

Redbay has always held large numbers of this species but unfortunately not to the specimen size of twenty years ago.

Nevertheless there were fish caught with a good selection of other species in the mix as well, including codling, pollack, flounder, ballans, corkwings, coalfish, dogfish and sea scorpions which was nice to see so early in the year.

Twenty-one of our thirty entrants registered fish on our closed page with top three rods being

Paddy O'boyle 38cm

Gary Mccurry 37cm

Barry Platt 34cm

Six other anglers broke the 30cm mark which is good going

Christopher Mccook 33cm

Mike Henry 32cm

Lee Mullan 32cm

Paul Hill 32cm

Martin O'boyle 30cm

Karl McCullough 30cm

This is an encouraging sign with the Summer still so young.
