    Dont forget if you do go fishing around Arbroath a few fillets of Mackerel { good quality } to work into your cocktail bait can only be good

    Yes Gary, it's a marvelous place when the fishing is good. I always wanted to take my Mother back to Stonehaven one last trip, (that's where she worked as a young girl making and repairing fishing nets, she's from Inverurie), but it's unlikley that will happen now.

    Alan is spot on with the makerel info for bait though, especialy in the winter. I was fishing at Newtonhills one day and watched a bloke hammer the fish out with just plain mackerel for bait. It can fish well up there for some reason.

    Regards Ian

    Good report and it was nice to meet up with you guys even if it was a brief blether. I think you need to also explain guys that for as many fish you had to keep there was a similar number returned so it was some haul of fish so well done.

    Alan, did the mackeral I give you work well? GAry said he had a few on it.

    Yes, thank you Rick. The mackerel you gave us worked very well.. What had you soaked it in?? Whatever it was the fish loved it.
