I lost my head

All that remains from a fishing trip to Cobh.

I discovered this fish’s head while walking about on the pier in Cobh during the month of August last year. At that time of year the mackerel
chase the sprat into Cork Harbour and provide a bountiful catch for local fishermen. Many years ago I remember casting into the waters off Church Bay and reeling in at least 4 fish, the feeding frenzy was so great!

    🙂 your post reminds me of the times when I used to fish with my friends in Cobh at night. Once they caught a shark. Another time my friend jumped into the water to “persuade” the fish to give up the fight. These were crazy times.
