Stefan Martin reports on the Killybegs Mariners SAC recent angling trips…

The Donegal Mariners had another good weekend fishing from the Donegal shore and along the Donegal coast.

Between club activities and informal outing they enjoyed some great fishing with fish of all sizes and a big range of species caught. A day’s small boat fishing produced some lovely fish including thornback and spotted rays, gurnards, whiting, scad and some great size turbot being the pick.

In another evening’s sport from the rocks, left over bait made for wrasse every drop non stop tip rattles and excitement with the hordes of small wrasse. Great fun altogether until the baits ran out. A few casts with the spinners into the deep produced a few lunkers of pollack that used every swoosh of the tails to strip line and dodge the landing net before release. Lovely evening out.
