    Firstly I would like to thank Gary, Martin, Alan and Dave for letting me join them on the Wednesday up at Usan :happy: Great bunch of guys who go out their way to offer help and advice. All tips noted and going to be tried out at later date so thanks again :wink:

    For anyone who has never fished with the guys they are simply excellent anglers. They hooked a good number of cod on the day I was there and to see them in action is something to behold if I am honest. Kind of made me look like I didn't know one end of the rod from the other! :confused: Gary and Martin certainly know their stuff and were landing fish after fish with Martin getting the largest of the day just before we finished up at Usan. Dave missed a big fish when his line got hit hard then snagged up. It's probably the big one Martin caught moments later lol :cry:

    Alan provided excellent company for myself and the banter was good throughout the day :laugh: He can also catch fish like no bodies business and clamber over rocks in a manner that would put many a younger man to shame.

    I would also like to add that Alan kept on mentioning cliff top fishing during our day at Usan and I did not think I would get to experience this. However later that evening I was down the Vicky park having walked my dog and decided to head down again to see where Alan had mentioned. As I pulled up I saw Martin's car and a short walk along the cliffs I found Martin, Alan and Gary fishing from the Cliff top. In the short time I was there Alan and Martin landed a cod each. For me this was an eye opener and something I am going to try in the future.

    So once again a big thank you to Gary and the guys and hope to catch up with you all the next time you are up this way.

    Oh, and Gary, can I have your autograph please! :laugh:

    I took some frozen Hermans Hermits with me and they did the Bizz , on the Friday I got 6 cod four of them falling to Hermit Crabs
    so its a bait worthy of consideration when you are fishing into heavy ground , it can also be a good bait in the winter

    As I have said before an OS map is essential along with as much information as possible before giving it a serious go , if you just turn
    up you might just get lucky given the correct conditions off Arbroath Breakwater , but theres lots of places where the the right stage of tide , sea conditions , water clarity wether it be coloured or like gin can play a very big part in how well you will do , Its certainly not just
    about turning up and you will fill your fish bag , places where water clarity is important is Vicky Park , Rumness , Ethie , Bodin point ,
    although just a short distance to the North coloured water with a bit of sea on puts you in the driving seat , Usan is the same , Tangle
    Ha takes a really good sea , Johnshaven / Gourden are better with a bit of sea on , Inverbervie takes a decent sea , just as long as you
    make a decent call you can usually get a good session with the cod
