Specimen wrasse for junior member Cormac and successful last league outing for Mariners SAC

Sunset in Donegal

Killybegs Mariners report…

And that’s a wrap…our 12th and final league outing of the season was held on the stunning West Donegal venue of Narin which always gives amazing sunsets facing west into the open Atlantic Ocean which made for a very enjoyable four hours fishing.

Flounder and turbot double for Stefan

First casts on the coming tide for the 13 anglers produced a few double hauls of turbot for Cormac, Stefan and Darren before things settled down and fish were hard to get over the minimum 20cm mark with lots of small turbot under the size. A nice turbot of 26cm for Darren was longest flattie with a further 3 flounders for Stefan to 25cm.

Counting turbot

Scores were tight at the end and on the last cast before lines up a welcome seatrout hit Gavin’s baits which took the win on the night along with a few flounders and turbot.

Results were as follows:

Longest flattie was won by Darren Rawdon

2nd on the night Stefan Martin

1st place on the night Gavin Dorrian

Lucky peg winner Darren Rawdon

And when the scores are counted up for the overall league John Cunningham is this year’s winner with final results to be tallied with a great consistent fishing over the winter. Well done to all!

During the week, the Mariners crew had a great array of species on the shore with fine conger for Gavin along with tompots, dabs, dogs, ballan and pollack and a few fine trout for Dessie and Ryan.

Nice conger for Gavin during the week


Last weekend, junior member, Cormac Duddy, got a new club record ballan wrasse which was also an Irish specimen fish length at 49cm whilst out with Killybegs Fishing Trips.
