The Killybegs Mariners have had some decent fishing this week, the highlights of which were a new club record whiting of 35cm and a tailless turbot! Junior Mariner Christopher Gillespie caught the whiting while senior member Cormac caught the tail-free flattie.

Club record whiting

Club members had to battle the elements at times, but they’ve shown that there are always fish to be caught – whatever the season, whatever the conditions. The main species encountered this week were turbot, flounders, whiting, codling and a few decent seatrout which were caught and released.

The club have been keeping their own score with a species record list and, in addition to the record whiting, club member Diarmuid McCallig scored a new shore record fish length with a codling of 29cm.
