I will grant you that I often describe several species as inedible, but what does that actually mean? Are ballans and dogfish off the list?

Years ago a lot of the Cork clubs cut back on the types of fish been accepted at the weigh-in. So species such as conger, both types of dogfish, wrasse, rays, pouting, hounds and a few other that don't come to mind at the moment, A lot of these species are not caught in the beaches and estuaries off the Cork coast at that time of the year. There will be the usual posters who will argue on what is or is not edible and how they can catch gurnards, ling, haddock and a few other species from the shore. I say off you go head down for the comp.

The main species that are classed as edible are all flat fish, cod, pollack, coalfish, whiting, bass in season.

The majority of the anglers will be heading to the usual winter venues for cod, coalfish, whiting, flounder and one or two heading west for pollack.

While I am not part of the organising committee the above will not be too far off the mark.
