Cobh SAC member, Danny Kane, was out on a sharking trip during the week. The weather has been so settled and good of late that a trip to target the blues has been on the cards for some time. Danny and three others set off for the grounds south of the Ling Rocks, stopping off on the way out for bait. Would you believe, within 20 minutes of setting up the rubby dubby bags they had their first run. They had set up five rods, Danny putting two rods out himself, and the first run did come to Danny. Danny was later to regret putting two rods out as he had a double hook up. However, being quite used to juggling, Danny managed to actually land both fish!!!
Sport for the afternoon was hectic. In all they had 14 runs and managed to land 10 blues. The smallest of the shark was about 50lbs with the biggest going to 100lbs. What an afternoon's fishing, and would you believe this all happened within the space of 3 hours. One of the lads had to go to work so they couldn't stay out any longer. Imagine the fishing if they could have stayed!
