Last Thursday a group were dispatched with instructions to catch enough mackeral for bait for the upcoming Deep Sea Angling Festival (http://cobhsac.blogspot.com/2010/07/less-than-2-months-to-go.html). An order was given for 1,000 mackeral!!! That would give each competing angler a bag of 5 mackeral for each day's fishing.
However, Cobh SAC member, Timmy Leahy, just wasn't paying heed to the task at hand. He just kept catching cod....and good ones at that!
All joking aside, cod turned up in great numbers. All were of the stamp shown in the photo. As you can see from Timmy' smile, he wasn't complaining.
There was as many cod caught as there were mackeral and, although, our quota wasn't reached there were a couple of fine boxes of fish allround. We can always top up on mackeral the next day!
