Killybegs Mariners report…

League outing number 9 of 12 took place on Friday 5th January in Malinbeg on a stunning venue surrounded by cliffs on all 3 sides and a roaring surf smashing in from the bay in front under a star filled sky occasionally lit up with the streaks of shooting stars.

Another great turnout of 19 anglers fished and was nice to see new faces out enjoying the fishing with the gang.
Fishing was “peggy” with those on one side of the beach hitting shoals of coley and filling the quota of 5 allowed and the other side getting a few flounders and turbot. A few 5 bearded rockling were also got including a new club record at 24cm for Gavin Dorrian.
Some fine flounders over 30cm and the longest flattie prize of €52 was won for a brute of a flounder of 39cm for Shane Cunningham.
Double of a flounder and a turbot for Daragh
2nd place overall fishing close to the rocks with fine pollack of 55cm, 44cm and 33cm plus coley to 40cm and flounder winning €52 was Brian Smith on 273 points.
Coleys making over the 20cm minimum
And in 1st place with 5 coleys along with 4 flounders and turbot winning €104 was Daragh McGuinness on 289 points. Daragh as winner had to pick out the lucky peg winner for the 2 euro each entry into the optional lucky peg draw and drew his own peg 18 for that prize also. The midas touch on the night for sure well done.
Thats 8 different winners in the first 9 outings. Well done to all!
Please fish in a sustainable manner
