Stefan Martin reports for the Killybegs Mariners on Donegal Bay…

02 March: Another great night out with the club at the 10th winter league outing last night a mighty turnout of 20 anglers filled the beach car park and lined the entire beach across trying to tempt the fish to the baits. The clouds parted and a galaxy of stars filled the sky and a steady line of boats headed past to land blue whiting and two men stepped off those boats and claimed the top prizes at the comp last night. Fish were feeding straight from the off with a few nice flounders and coleys making our minimum size of 23cm.

Word soon filled the beach that Sean O Donnell had a nice fish of 38cm only to be beaten by a 40cm for Cormac Burke. Flounder and coleys made up the bulk of the catch with an odd dogfish and 5 bearded rockling thrown in. Scores were very close at the end with 5cm points separating the top 2.  Longest fish prize; a 40cm flounder €57 was won by Cormac Burke.. 2nd place points prize €57 was won by Christopher Noctor and 1st place overall prize €114 was won by Gavin Dorrian.

Well done to the winners and well done to all who came and enjoyed the fishing.
