Atlantic saury for Killybegs Mariners

Killybegs Mariners report…

Tuna food!! Amazing catches on the shore for Gavin and Johnny and a fish that the species hunters all aspire to get, the Atlantic saury. A favourite food of the giant Bluefin tuna that are in Donegal Bay right now and a new species; also a new club record shore saury of 34cm for Gavi.

Double saury for Gavin
