Stefan Martin from the Killybegs Mariners SAC reports…

06 February: 5km limits but still some good fishing to be had on the local piers. A fine mix of species for the Mariners crew landing 7 species including coley, pollack, dab, flounder, poor cod, mackerel and herring which kept the rods busy. Lots of herring and small mackerel in the shallows of the bay now providing a bounty for the gulls and the boats

13 February: A nice mix of species for Johnny venturing to the harbour mark and finding plenty of fish in the cold weather as the inner bays become spawning grounds for herring and attract plenty of fish doing likewise and finding handy food sources. Herring and coleys on the jigs and lures along with dabs, poor cod, codling, dogs, whiting, conger etc on the baits
