Fished the tide on the turn from 7.00 - 10.00 pm. Only fish about were small flatties taking squid bait. Any where else in south Down for a bit of variety and /or better fish?

newcastle has good spots

Used to be a good mark around coast out of town I think called Magies Leap.

Drive (walk) to end of town towards mountain end that is. And go out coastal road untill you get to a public toilet there is a path behind it along a walk way you will be at rocks now. If you have 2 rods cast 1 out as far as u can and float other close in to rocks. Use ragworm and rasse and codling used to be great there. Weads close in so float with other try a grip wait if still clear ok if not plain wait to help out with weeds. Had loads there mate. Now the dad bit sorry. Did not read profile so dont know age but no matter what age take mobile it is rocky and some good waves about there. If young will day time only dark road and not safe near hit myself once.
Otherwise give it a go hope you know were i mean let me know
