Members of Killybegs Mariners enjoyed great a day’s fishing with a total of 14 species inculding a huge mullet new club record of 59cm for Gavin Dorrian. The fish measured 59cm and was probably over the 5lbs. specimen weight but with no certified scales the fish was released back to the harbour (specimen report has fish of 55cm in it making 5lbs.)
Elsewhere, the penultimate Mariners League outing took place on Narin Beach. Nine anglers made the trip and enjoyed the evening out. Fish were scarce with the best flattie a 34cm for Brian who ended in 2nd place so longest flattie prize went to John Cunningham with a 20cm turbot. Second overall was won by Brian Smith and overall winner on the night was Cormac Burke with a counting flounder and a dogfish.
The last league outing will take place today Friday June 24th from 19.30pm – 23.30pm on the north side of Rossnowlagh Beach.
