Home Sea angling reports Epic turbot fishing for Killybegs Mariners and a rare pipefish

Epic turbot fishing for Killybegs Mariners and a rare pipefish

A lot of our shore fishing can be put down to planning with the winds, air pressure and tides to suit the venues and especially the last few days after the big seas crashed the shores and fish move in when it settles but sometimes the stars just align to give a session that is remembered for years and this was one of those sessions.
Turbot alley as the rods hopped with double and treble hauls of lovely turbot with a 13 in the first hour alone for Cormac, and plenty also for Ryan and Dessie and Pat.
Fish of the night a new club record shore length turbot of 39cm for Pat Byrne one of many over the 30cm mark.
