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. 12290648_10153238705586398_502838440_o 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.   12271080_10153238705456398_959957505_o (1)

RIP Mr Octavia. Thanks to everyone who unloaded all the gear etc from my car and managed to get it back to Dublin for me. I had planned on staying with Mark B in Whitegate but I had to triple out with two of the guys in Clonakilty. Unfortunately this meant that Mark B could not fish with us. This was an enjoyable session after all the dram with me managing to get into some flounder and also a stray turbot. Jp was the deserved winner with Thin Lipped, Thick Lipped and Golden Grey Mullet as well as some flounder. I'd like to get back down again and try for some Gilt Heads. Maybe next time.
