Loads of good marks all around Aberdeen. The rocky stretch of coast to the South has some very productive rock marks, notably the flat rock near Altens, this is just south of the deep inlet with a very noticeable band of red rock which faces north. Best bet is to take a walk along the path, start at...

Some of the boats use a nice angled ramp on the south east end of the harbour in Arbroath. I`ve never seen a charter boat leave from the pontoons, but it may well be possible to arrange. But at low tides I`ve sen us climbing all the way down the old rusty /slippy ladders to get to the boats, not eas...

Some of the boats from Arbroath have easy boarding, but it is very much dependant on a highish tide to start, call the arbroath harbourmaster for up to date info. Easy marks in our area.... Dundee Riverside (Doesn`t get any easier than this....) parking all along roadway, approx 12ft of pavement to ...

Riverside Drive Dundee

Fished beside the cafe for 3 hours on Monday 15th with my young son. Weather was chilly, but only catch was a small pollack, just under the 1lb mark. There have been many reports of fairly large sea trout getting taken here, but this is normally at dusk or in darkness, best baits being tipped rag. O...

When I bought my Shakespeare extreme titanium, I couldn`t actually get the three bits together at all, phoned Gerry`s who advised a little bit of very fine wet `n` dry emery, which worked a treat, no problems with weekly use after almost 3 years...

Welcome to the forum. I`ve seen people fishing off the end before, and been cut off by boats coming in, given the usage of the peir, i would suggest not evr fishing past the signage. Rumours of the harbour master running out of patience with angler`s. Cages really are the best bet here as waves do f...

Guy was fishing alone, at almost the same spot as another polish guy lost his life last winter. Real shame, and a timely reminde...

Bervie Bonanza

Inverbervie, certainly lived up to its reputation yesterday.... I took 4 codling, 2 tiddlers but 2 over 5lb, in just over an hour. Other rods further along boasted bags of 6 or 7 averaging around the 4-5lb mark ( longer stints). Weather was nice, but the wed was a nightmare in very heavy seas... Blu...

I fish the river fairly often throughout the year, and generally use a variety of Paternosters, main issue is with crabs, so have floating beads on at least some of your leaders. Baits vary, but blacklug is best, sometimes with a wee tip of mackerel helps. Crabs are another favourite, but more expen...

half decent codling have been appearing in the Tay estuary last few weeks, so hopefully this is a good sign of what`s to come after a disappointing year last year.

Hi, Yes it`s frustrating catching mackerel after the first few... The Clyde used to be a productive place for all sorts of species a good few years ago, sadly most of the catches have been wiped by over zealous commercials, and of course industrial/human waste. there are still other species to go fo...

Mackerel are scrce from the shore his year. Best places are usually breakwaters/piers over high tides. Fishing with a string of feathers/lures normally does the trick. Most rock marks are usually ok for mackies but this year has been poor. Bass are rarer on the East coast, Peterhead power station ou...

Hi, I`ve never had any problems on the beach, I believe you can get into bother if you take salmon & sea trout especially from near the river mouths.. Not sure i`d want to go fishing in the harbour area, a wee bit busy for my liking. Peterhead south breakwater can be fantastic, always really deep wa...
