Stefan Martin from Killybegs Mariners SAC reports on the fishing around Donegal Bay during the week:

Wed 23/11/2016: Another glorious day on Donegal Bay, blue skys and burning red sunsets as some nice pollack off the rocks.   We moved to the beach for sunset and some nice coley and flounder as we watched the small herring boats steam home with the dolphins riding their bows as the crimson sun slid down the sky behind them it was a joy to watch and great to see it.



Thurs 24/11/2016: Brrrrr, this codling wondering what we’re doing out in minus temperatures tonight.  Roads are dodgy in places so venue change for tomorrow nights outing switched to Fintra now, you can park at the old training pitch save going down the steep hill.


Sat 26/11/2016: Starry Starry night in Fintra last night for the league outing as the steam rose of the warm bay into the cold frost air we cast out in anticipation and the coleys were on the feed straight away and some nice dabs across the beach, a distance cast produced a lovely 33cm whiting for David and a few dogs made up the catch. Slow fishing and close scores at the end most points cash prize was won by Stefan Martin and longest fish prize was a nice 33cm whiting for David Matthews. Well done all. Next competition local will be the land and sea sports league leg 4 in Fintra Sunday week.


Mariners league table after 8/12 outings.. no Mariners league outing next weekend. The land and sea sports league leg 4/5 will take place on our local beach open to all in Fintra Sunday 11th December fishing 10am – 14.00pm
