Surprise bass and some flatties for Killybegs Mariners

An unexpected bass for the Killybegs Mariners in Donegal.
With no league outing this weekend a few members on the club chat organised a longest flattie competition when the weather was good on a still calm autumn evening out.
Eight rods fished and the fish of the night was a lovely chunky bass for John Higgins although it was no use in the longest flattie comp it was nice to see a fine fish landed. 2nd prize of €30 for a 32cm flounder was won by Proinnseas Doherty and 1st prize of €50 with a 34cm flounder was won by Cormac Burke. Well done!
Species caught were flounder, bass, dog, pollack, coley and whiting.
34cm for the longest flattie prize Cormac Burke
32cm and 2nd place prize for Proinnseas Doherty
Next Mariners league outing will take place as a daylight outing this Saturday November 11th on Streedagh Beach, Grange Co Sligo fishing 11.00am – 15.00pm. Everyone welcome to come along and enter the competition.
Please fish in a sustainable manner
