This weekend past saw the Ballan Wrasse leg of our Summer species hunt

This weekend past saw the Ballan Wrasse leg of our Summer species hunt.

The poor old wrasse have taken an absolute hammering this past few years on the East Antrim coast line as they are being targeted commercially to ultimately be used as cleaner fish in the salmon nets in Scotland where their life expectancy isnt that long, creating a constant need for new fish.

This year was probably the poorest show of Ballans we have had in the four years that we have held the species hunt. Some guys fished various venues between Larne and Waterfoot for up to nine hours with no wrasse showing.

Nevertheless there were fish recorded with North Antrim venues throwing up some nice specimens.

Top rods were

Gary Mccurry 47cm

William Cairns 45cm

Christopher Mccook 36cm

Paddy O'boyle 36cm

Well done folks.

Our next species will be Pollack and thankfully theres still a few of those kicking about.
