Michael McVeigh reports from Downings, County Donegal:

Good fishing this week for our Dutch guests, spurdog were turning up in good numbers with specimens up to 112cm recorded. We’ve also had reasonable numbers of tope and our second good common skate of the season – a fine fish of 135lbs or so.

One of the highlights from last Sunday was a specimen tub gurnard of just over 2kgs, super fish.
