A sunny day in Portpatrick Harbour
To the west of Kirkcudbright, follow the B727 towards Borgue turning off where Brighouse Bay is signposted. When the road forks, follow the left hand fork (in the direction of Kirkcudbright Bay) but follow to Ross Bay. Fishing Bar Point (just north of Ross Bay) at high tide will mean that you are into some deep water, with a good likelihood of mullet and bass. In lower water, flounder are also caught. It's not really an area to spin in but is more suitable for beach casting.
At Brighouse Bay itself, the rocks to the east of the May are good for rockling and pollack. With a sandy bottom and it's relative shallow water depth, it's also one of the better places to catch flat fish.
If you've got the means to travel slightly further east, why not try fishing from the infamous Balcary Point near Auchencairn? Reknowned for its sea fishing it is famed for its cod, with an individual of over 40lb having been taken from the shore as well as record dover sole and conger. Boat fishing is also very productive in this area, with record bass having been taken.
