Some of the Killybegs Mariners SAC club have been out on local marks lately, enjoying some productive spring fishing. Some people are lucky indeed to have good fishing close to home!

One club member Gavin went in search of plaice and was rewarded with a club record size fish.

A fine Donegal plaice for Gavin


The fish was a club record length for the species.

Although it has been cold of late, the weather has been mostly dry, and beautiful sunsets accompanied the fishing.

There were plenty of flounder around too for Gavin and Cormac. these fish will be feeding hard after their recent spawning migration and should provide good sport. Although the lads can boast good fishing within their 5km, I’m sure they will, like the rest of us be looking forward to Monday when they can venture further afield! We look forward to more reports throughout the season from the club…
