Stefan Martin reports for the Killybegs Mariners on Donegal Bay…

Surfs up!

18 March: As the storm subsided the hearty band of 19 anglers took up position on the beach with easing winds and a lovely surf flowing white suds into the beach for the 10th winter league outing last night (2 to go). A coming tide for the evening brought on some nice flounder with fish in the 20s cm before a nice 33cm for Christy and a huge 41cm for Declan. Big numbers of small coleys were robbing the baits most below our minimum size of 23cm with a few breaking through to make the measure. Well done to Katie getting her first Turbot and she landed another for good measure with both making the size.


Fishing was hard enough with no big numbers keeping scores close back at the van for the count for prize giving. Longest fish cash went to Declan McGettigan with s 41cm flounder. 2nd place cash went to Stefan Martin and the winner with most points 1st place John Cunningham. Well done to all who took part and welcome to the new members who fished always great to see new faces enjoying the fishing.
