Grauvell Cod Championship 2015

The 3rd Grauvell Irish Cod Championships  were held by Sea Angling Ireland SAC on the evening of Saturday, November 21st in Youghal. A total of 56 anglers travelled to take part in this event. It was a cold clear evening with anglers stretched along Youghal Beach.


Fishing was slow as the tide dropped, and really only picked up as the tide turned in the darkness.

At 9pm lines were reeled in and it was back to The Walter Raleigh to tally the score cards.

There was a total of  165 fish caught by the anglers, the species caught were Cod, Whiting, Coalfish, Painted Ray, Dogfish, Conger, Rockling and Flounder.
