Ballycastle has always been a popular spot for fishing, be it in-shore, deep sea, river or lough. Not so many years ago I myself spent endless days deep sea fishing on the Straits of Moyle. Rathlin Island is surrounded with numerous shipwrecks, the Loughgarry that lies in a hundred feet of water along the East side of the island has always been a sure thing for seven or eight pound Pollock for the average fisherman, that’s not to say that I haven’t seen a few 15 pounds pulled in over the side here. And if you’re adventurous enough deep sea chasms were I have landed a few twenty pounders. Go further to the Pinnacles and you’ll need a beast of a rod, reel and plenty of energy for the beasties awaiting. Fish also include Ling, Cod, Gurnard, Mackerel, Collies (Glashon), Herring, Conger, Skate, etc…
