The fourth qualifier of Ireland’s Feeder King 2024 was held today on the river Blackwater, just outside Dungannon.

The weather was sunny all day with temperatures hitting 24°C, not exactly bream weather, however there was some great skimmer weights.

Mark Alcock had a stunning day on A2 with just under 30kg of big skimmers.

Nick Howell had the 2nd biggest weight of the day with just over 25kg of big skimmers again from the not so fancied A 17.

There was another 20kg plus weight of big skimmers from Raimondas Gvozdas on the early pegs on Section A.

Unfortunately the skimmers never showed up on Zone C around bonds Bridge.



  • ZONE A Mark Alcock 29.500kg.
  • ZONE B Nick Howell 25.275kg.
  • ZONE C Paul Eyers 2.050kg.


  • A Mark Alcock/Eddie Griskallis 15.450kg.
  • B Nick Howell/ Brenton Sweeney 14.275kg.
  • C Paul eyers/ Padraig Smith 1.625kg.
