Tuna Mick was out for a few days of ‘normal’ fishing last week but on Sunday he had the opportunity to have a scout around for the Bluefin in Donegal Bay. When it rains it pour and the Leah-C had a double hook up for Karl and Killian from Dublin, who managed to do a great job of keeping the fish apart and we got both. A nice pair of 275lb and 400lb.

On the previous Thursday Killian and Shane Bonner had another successful day out with a fine first fish of 240lb for the younger Bonner!

First fish for Bonner Jr
