Hi Bucko, Thx for the info I've heard of Moggs Eye but I don't now where Huttoft is. Its a bit of an adventure for us fishing the linc's coast as there does seem to be a better variety of summer species and more of them than there is on our coastline. I get a bit bored of guessing if the bite is a c...

Hi Cod, The area at the back of Bally's nightclub fishes on the flood in an easterly and it is safe, unless the sea is coming over the wall. Places like Easthaven beach are usually fine just watch out for the tide coming in behind you as it is easier to move up the beach rather than over the dunes. ...

fishing marks

Hi, My first time posting on this forum though I do post fairly regularly on the Scottish forum. The better half and myself are going down to visit her parents next month and would appreciate any info on marks in the Linc's area. In previous visits we have fished Chapel point with some success but w...

Arbroath marks can fish all year round with Arbroath pier being popular in the winter and the rock marks all year round. Marks that can produce fish are Auchmithie and Usan which are both rough ground marks. Fish into the gullies and don't cast too far or you will not get your gear back. Pulley rigs...

I was out at Eyemouth on the boat last sunday and had a good day with the water being clear for a change. Codling to 5/6lb, ling to the same plus one or two oher species. Lug and razor were the best baits and there must have been 60/70 fish brought aboard with the majority returned unharmed :) Macke...

The rigs I use depend on what bait I am using but the one thing they have in common is they are both clipped up. The swivel for the snood is fixed between 2 beads and crimps down at the weight end and the bait clip is attached up the trace line. This type of rig casts further and the bait is definet...

Hi del, Inverary pier can throw up a few as can loch Linnhe and loch Sunart. Its a case of putting out a bait and waiting until the dogs go off the feed or you land a bait on the thornies nose. In saying that they do seem to becoming more prolific as the fishing fleet declines and more anglers retur...

Fishhunter has given you good advice on baits. I'd like to give you advice on what is caught at this time of the year but I'm not very sure as I only fish it in the winter. I would think that if you get an onshore wind you will get some codling in at bervie but apart from that I don't know. As Fishu...

Hi Hoooopy, Welcome to the forum. As for fishing, the macks will be in now so Macinroys point and the gamble steps in Gourock will be a start. The pier at the back of Morrisons in Greenock will throw up macks, codling and pollack. At this mark fish just beyond the kelp filled ledge for everything ex...

No problems Keith. If you are planning on B&B the accomadation and breakfast offered by Andy Jackson are highly recommended, the views from the lodge veranda are incredible. He has also been known to stop off at the Mishnish (famous pub) in Tobermory. The Taynuilt hotel is 5mins from the pier and is...

Hi Lloydy, Was going to post about Arbroath but as there is a big match there this weekend I didn't want to put people off. The fishing was patchy and there didn't seem to be a lot of fish about. What fish there were about were small with a 2/3lb pounds being the best cod. Also the best bait seemed ...
