Stefan Martin from Killybegs Mariners SAC reports on the fishing around Donegal Bay…

Golden sky
Sunset over Donegal Bay

21 April: Golden sky’s for the first of the Mariners summer league outings and 14 anglers lined the beach reeling in some lovely fish coming on high water with fish being caught all along the beach. Shoals of mullets fins were breaking the calm surface and two lovely flounders of 40cm for John set the bar.
Flounder – 40cm

A double haul for Daragh kept him in contention but in the end most points cash prize was won by John Cunningham and 2nd place prize was won by Daragh McGuinness and longest fish prize was 40cm flounder for John Cunningham.

Next event…

Mariners longest flattie competition this Friday evening on Inver beach. Fishing is from 19.30pm – 23.30pm with the longest flatfish winning a reel.
