Yes, spinning at cushendun during summer will produce sea trout and coalies and occasional mackerel etc but usual clean ground bottom fishing tactics take most fish, sometimes daylight can be more productive for flats etc but the majority of fishing is during darkness. have even seen guys trying flyfishing here due to the depth of water.
