hi all, i have some pictures which i can e-mail to wes or jd??? they can put them up for me if possible. im going out on friday again up to the mark, what i will do is photograph the various different marks in the area. The pier normally is not one of my favourites but it has been fishing really well lately for flatties only. i will also take some photos of the scenery from glenariff which is a fantastic valley leading down to the bay itself so everyone can see the full picture!!! hi pookie fished from 1pm to 6pm at the pier all fish came between 3.30 and 4.45 with high tide at 6pm.

lol, Summers in Red Bay, 120 Children casting over eachother, Trying to hit Mullet on the head with Spinners.
Big hitters scared to wind up a cast for Fear of Clonking little Jimmy on the Heed, the remenents of 30 Bags of Ragworm scattered all over the place, Hellish amounts of Line, Hooks, Rigs, Crisp Packets, Tins, General Fishing Rubbish.
No Doubt there's a helluva lot of fish about the Pier, Its just a Pity about the way its maintained.
