October has being a slow month, people are finding it harder to catch new species or they are just holding their cards close to their chest and send them all in at the last minute.
We did have a couple of big movers, Aidan O Halloran sent in 17 species to see him jump up to40 species, Congratulations also to Aidan on winning the Jimmy Smith recently. The other big mover was the superstar match angler Joe Byrne, Joe sent in 24 species and you would have to wonder where he finds the time to run a tackle shop and still have time for so much fishing, he seems like a man on a mission.
The most unusual catch of the month surely goes to Anthony Foley and his Red Mouthed Goby, have to say I’ve never seen or heard of one before. Anthony also sent in a Conger scoring 129 points.
Fish of the month goes again to Joe Birney Snr for his Painted Ray scoring 119 points and weighing in at over 13lb well over the specimen weight. Well done Joe.
