For mullet, try the harbours in that area, the Isle, Portwilliam or Gairlieston. groundbait with onion bag, loaded with bread and small pieces of mackerel. Carp or feeder rod, 6lb line, hooks about size 8 small stick float or free line. bait, bread, small cube of mackerel or use maggots. require lots of patience and a landing net in case you catch one. bass a trickier one to answer, one or two have been caught unintentionaly at Burrowhead area whilst fishing for other species. Used to be a few at bottom of bay, but they were netted out years ago. Also for the mullet you require a decent pair of poleroids, not much use fishing for mullet until you see them in front of you.

I was surrounded by grey mullet in Ireland last week... Didn't even need a rod, you could just lift them out :)

try the rocky area to the left of new england bay,the mullet are usually around this area but you have to creep up on them as its very shallow and they scare easily
