Racecourse Beach offers some very exciting fishing for all ages. Children will enjoy trying to catch whiting and bream from the beach. These are great species for children, as they can be caught very close to shore when the conditions are right.
For older anglers and sports fisherman, the local salmon will provide an exciting challenge, and can also be caught from the beach. Rock fishing can be found at either end of Racecourse Beach, but remember to ask the locals for advice on local conditions before venturing out!
