Cricket - Port Na Blagh

Postby Conor H » Mon Jun 06, 2005 10:36 am

People:
H Rocks, Graeme Reid, Christy and Paddy Kennedy, Marty Gillespie, Phily Gordon, Marty's mate, who will remain nameless - because I didn't catch his name.

Duration:
9AM to 6PM
Tide:

Weather:
Rain, and fairly windy, calmer to the North of Tory
Bait:
Fresh mackerel - no shortage - sounder showed mackerel from Port Na Blagh to Tory constantly
Jelly worms and leadheads - black with pink tails worked better that black and chartreuse
Rigs:
Jelly worm & leadheads, feathers, hokkais, conger traces.
Results:
A lot of pollock to about 9.5 to 10lb. 3 conger. Coalies.

Report:
Left the harbour at about 9am, wind picked up as we got close to tory and the sea got a bit on the lumpy side. Fishing was best in the higher swell, though Paddy lost his footing and fell and broke his rod. Christy got a bit on the queasy side so we headed for the sheltered side of Tory and fished the bays . Spinning for Pollock worked best here with some nice fish taken on light tackle. We were joined for a few minutes by 2 dolphins which was nice to see.
We moved in to the Anvil at about 4 and Graeme set up for conger with immediate success - 3 were taken in about an hour (photo to follow) - none too big but good craic and Graeme's conger duck was broken.
A good days fishing in all, but hopefully it'll not be as rough again this year. It was a first outing with me for the other 6, and I imagine from talking to them afterwards that the usual crew will find it very difficult to get their places back when they return form wherever they are.

Heyyyyyy, no fair, I am on the other side of the world! :(

Cracking fishing, I'm back on Sunday, can't wait to spin a line again.

All this exotic tropical fishing gets a bit repetitive....... :D

must be tough Gerry ! Those barracuda and shark don't compare to the pollock and coalie !! ... and the sun - I hate it - it brings me out in an unnatural healthy glow as opposed to the pasty light blue that us Irish are supposed to be !!
