Shore Competition #1 2019 Sponsored by Henry’s Tackle, Arklow 05/01


We had an early start to our clubs proceedings this year, it seems no time since the Cod Open to be honest but it was a welcome excuse to dust off the gear and get back to it. Arklow South was the venue and to say it was so early in the year we had a much improved turnout on the beach with some familiar faces returning to the fold along with new members. The weather was calm and mild, the lads laying strings of pots 100m off the beach while we were setting up was a bit disconcerting at the start but it had no bearing on proceedings thankfully.

Right from the off fish were flying in up and down the beach, with small whiting making up the bulk of the catches. Busy as it was, once it got dark it went utterly mental. I watched Lee Meiklejohn cast out with 40 seconds left on the clock, he wound in promptly on the dot of 6 with a fish swinging off his trace that had barely time to get wet.
