Report: We all met up in John O’Brien’s on the Tramore Road who was very hospitable with coffee and cinnamon buns! Come noon we drove down the hill to the entrance to the strand, dumped our tackle, and brought the cars back up the hill to near the Post Office.
At 1pm it was line in and it seemed that most had elected to send clip-downs out into the navigation channel.
Some fish started to come in, mainly small codling and whiting, with the odd flounder. Not for me though.
After about 2 hours I got my first scorer, a flounder of 20 cm. Things started picking up with a few doubles and then a treble including a coalie of 33 cm.
I had a few more flounder and small codling and finished up with 14 on my card. No surprise in the winner, Jp, with 17 fish. Marco came 3rd with 12 fish.
