About

The beach is best fished on spring tides in the early morning or evening.

Big flounder and dab are caught along with whiting and coalfish in the winter. Sea bass and the occasional large thornback ray are caught here in the summer and autumn.

Fresh lugworm is the best bait with peeler crab a close second. Fresh sand eel is also an excellent bait for sea bass especially in late August.

Thick lipped grey mullet and golden grey mullet can be also caught further up the estuary during the summer months. Light line of 4-5lb breaking strain used with small harbour ragworm as bait are the best tactics for mullet species in Fountainstown.
