as title says will probz head down tomorrow has anyone had any results there i know of people catching bass at the beach but not in big numbers.
I know Down in General is not supposed to be as ptoductive in general as Antrim (hopefully nothing controversial there, I've seen it written loads on this forum). But at the same time there are supposed to be spots. I wish they'd publish a guide like the wonderful one they did for The Causeway Coast and Glens.
All I know is this but you may have seen it:

Very dated but probably of some relevance.
ballyhalbert ismy much better tbh lol ballywalter beach is gd for flounder have fished gd few time this year and last year and can throw up the odd surprise tooWas fishing off Ballywalter Pier today at hight tide and on the turn. Local fisherman told me I was wasting my time that Ballyhalbert was better. On my way back to the car I heard the same advice from a local out for a walk. Caught zip. Was spinning and rubber lure. Did hear Ballywalter Beach was so so for Flounder though. Who knows though. The Down Coast is sparse of fish.

blacklug/lug ragworm mackeral and bluey works best for me there coming into darkness and dark only time I catch there anytime realy in the year u will get flounder no problemCool.
I'm new to this and only getting into shore fishing. Can u please advise what bait and rig to use on Ballywalter Beach. Is there a particular month to fish? evening time ?
Ballyhalbert pier does have fish over Winter, middle of the pier cast clean over the wall, your fishing over mixed ground close in but clean sand further out.
If you find your snagging a lot ? Learn how to cast :roflpuke:
