The huge, all tide slipway at Kilmore Quay can accommodate up to three simultaneous small boat launches and has greatly contributed to the expansion of small boat angling locally. The inshore boat fishing has built up a truly deserved reputation.
All the marks around the Saltee Islands, from the Barrels, Brandies and Bores to the Conningbeg Rock afford great opportunities for a multitude of species including blue shark.
Fishing from the piers will produce wrasse, flounder, mullet and bass. East of the marina is a rock formation known as St. Patrick’s Bridge, which can produce bass, sea trout and wrasse to specimen size. Forloin Point to the west also produces good shore fishing for the bass. The area still holds the Irish pouting record which stands at 4lbs 13.5ozs.
