I've started two maps, one detailing N.Ireland's shore fishing locations and the other for bait and tackle shops. The fishing locations and bait shops are seperated into 2 different maps because its easier to store into your GPS.:thumbs:

Shore fishing locations

Uploading these maps to Garmin GPS.

- At the top right hand corner of the map just above "Terrain" view button there's a tab called "Link". Click that for the webpage of your map. The link pops up highlighted, copy that.

- Now navigate to This webpage and paste your map link into the bar. Hit Load MyMap and then upload to Garmin GPS.

- The map if loaded corectly, will be in WhereTO>Extras>Custom POIs>. Click on it you will see all the fishing locations. Click on a fishing location you will see Map, Save, More on bottom, click more to see the extra info added about that fishing location.

- repeat process for the Bait and tackle shops map


Most of the locations happen to be on the North coast, so if anyone would like to PM me good locations around the Down coastline, I'd be more than happy to add them in.

A brief example of the info I need:

salmon rock

This is a flat rock situated at the left hand side of Beech rd carpark, Portbalintrae. Small pathway leads down onto rock mark.

1. Fish: - Bass, Sea-trout, Cod, Pollock, Coalies, Flounder, plaice and turbot.

2. Riggs: - Three hook flappers, Clip down and Pulley for distance. [clean bottom]

3. Bait: - Lug, Rag, Crab, mackerel, squid.

4. Other Info: - Gulley around 100 yards straight out from mark.

Hi M8

I have had a look and you have been busy adding locations to the map.

Whats this showing off adding pictures as-well.

If you find you get a great response you may have to split them into several different maps instead of going to two pages on the one map just like the N/W map and Scotland on the link below.

Well done again it looks good.

I think I'll be able to get all N.Ireland's marks in the map Billy, as there's not so many good marks along the county down shoreline as there is along the North Coast. I've heard Donegal and the West coast of Ireland is good for shorefishing, so it would be good if someone with local knowledge, from the Republic, took up the mantle to make their own map too. Local knowledge is more valuable and rewarding than just placing fishing marks willy-nilly.

Using The Fishing Maps

Hi

For anyone unsure how to use the fishing map.
  1. select the blue link below or copy and past into your browser.
  2. Select my maps.
  3. you will then see.
  • N/E Beach fishing locations (with pictures)
  • N/E Fishing tackle shops.
  • North West fishing marks.
  • Scotland fishing marks
  • NI fishing marks (with pictures)
To the left of the above is a BOX for each select which one you want or all of the overlays and the information will be shown on the map.

Depending on the speed and spec of your computer it may be wise to only select one area at a time if you are having problems.

Zoom in for more detail information. Select a map pin for even more info.

Thanks any more info drop us a line.

Request for some help from down south.

I'm currently working on county down at the minute M8, if you've got some good marks along the Down coast PM them to me.

would you be able to make a map of Donegal and the West coast? Don't take on too big an area or else it will take forever to load up. I've found that the size of N.Ireland's coastline would be about the limit, if your map is any larger it becomes very slow, so I'm presuming the coast of Donegal would be sufficient for one map, although Leitrim and Sligo may be squeesed in also.

Someone with Local knowledge of the Donegal, Leitrim and Sligo coastline would be able to predict if all three could be included in their map, without the map taking a lifetime to load.

havent being here for a while now
just remembered i was member when i seen it whilst surfing the net lol. anyway
i have a very good location that you aint got mapped. i posted this on a thread last year but didnt get any feed back if people tried it and how they got on.
about a mile outside ardglass heading towards ballyhornen theres a sign on ur right hand side for st patricks well.go down and take the 1st right.when u come to the g.a.a club you will see a long road down the side of it.its actually a drive way till a house.its o.k to go down the owners allow you. you can open the gate and park ur car on the field as long as you close it behind you.or you can just park at the gaa club but its a good walk down that lane lol. walk to the bottom of the field and from left to right you have a couple of mile of decent cliffs and rocks to fish off. i prefer this spot as ive caught 100s of decent pollock ect here. so when you go down lane go through gate walk to bottom of field and start heading right keep going for about just under a mile. (its worth it)
there a few wire fences on the way just jump over the them. when you come to this spot its called fenic dont know why.
you will know your at the right place as you will be able to look accross the water and see ardglass golf coarse. you will see a point that goes out into the water you will have to cross over to the point by climbing which isnt very hard as my girl can do it. and thats you walk to the very point and theres a nice little place to fish were the water comes all around you and is very very deep. the big pollock love this f##king place. yet its only round the corner from ardglass pier most people dont know about it and the way i explained is the only way to get to it.
roll on summer cuz thats were i will be
catching
pollock
rass
seatrout
coals
cod.

Ulsterman, I,ve a set of fishing maps, from Dublin down round the south coast as far as the Dingle on the west coast. I got them from the Irish Fisheries Board in Dublin. they show all the fishing marks, types of fish, whether spinning, float or bottom is best, also where you can dig bait. Would these be of interest to you or would there be problems with copy-right Jock

Hi there Ulsterman great idea

ref co.down coast

drive out of kilkeel heading in the newcastle direction, and you go through a village called Ballymartin go straight out through the village go round a bad-ish bend and on the left hand side you'll see a guy with a sign saying boat and caravan storage, park in the wee tiny lay by opposite this and you'll look down on rocks that sit way out in to the water, use the bump lane to "walk" down do not drive down

from these rocks you get excellant mac fishing and the odd pollack.


then on round the coast to Green Castle this is heading in the oppsite direction, head from Kilkeel to Warringpoint and you will see a sign for Green Castle, Green Castle is right at the mouth of carlingford lough, if you head down to the Green Castle pier you stand a good chance of running in to the tricky sea trout and mackeral, mind you you need to be there at high tide

Carlingford Lough, which produced the current Irish record Tope, has some excellent fishing during the summer months with Ray, Spurdog, Tope and Dogfish all being present. Mackerel and Codling are also abundant and an assortment of species including others such as Bass, Mullet, Coalfish, Pollack, Ray and Conger.

a wee link worth flick about it
