Good pollack for Gavin Dorrian...one of many species caught by Killybegs Mariners members over the past week

Members of Killybegs Mariners SAC enjoyed yet another eventful week’s shore and rock fishing recording a phenomenal variety of species including sea trout, turbot, flounder, coalfish, pollack, corkwing wrasse, codling, dab and rockling to name but a few.

A number of different mini-species were also caught. However, one of the many highlights of the week was a rare Connemara clingfish for Mariners member Cormac Burke. This is the 56th species of fish caught by members of the Killybegs Mariners SAC since they started keeping formal records in January 2021 and the 69th for Cormac!

Junior member, Christopher Gillespie, set a new club record for shore-caught whiting with a fish measuring 35cm. Well done Christopher! Other new club records were recorded for rock goby, shore rockling and clingfish of course.
