    have a search for eyemouth or st abbs on here mate or ask big cliff he knows the area very well and has put some reports up. I don't know when you are thinking of going and I dont know what the winter fishing is like but the summer kelpy and pollack fishing is excellent. I've only been once, with Alan at the beginning of october and we got a few fish..

    codnchips until the end

    hi mate. if you do go, be very careful if there is any ice or even water on the rocks/grass as access to the fishing marks is very very steep! also phone reception up there is not existant so go with someone for safety

    tight lines

    SAGE always trying...... some say very trying !!!!!

    some good marks at eyemouth... south of the town and across the golf course ... there is a coastal path ... and all along this path there are some cracking gulleys and rock marks.... stout footware and travel light if you can... some tricky climb downs on the rocks ... if its wet it is very slippy so take care..

    some photos of marks across the golf course .... all marks were snaggy so recommend rotton bottoms rigs and usual heavy ground tactics.... unless you float fishing or using lures but thats mainly summer fishing..


    the next two pics are the whalt point area


    in eyemouth there are a couple of decent marks ..just park near the caravan site and access is all along the cliff tops next to the caravan park.. just follow it north the first mark you see will be a rocky outcrop ,, i think its called "the cannons" further round to the north there is big bay which has a few marks on the cliffs all the way along till you hit the beach...

    a couple of pics from the cliff tops behind the caravan site looking towards the beach

    this mark "killiedraught bay" was a clean to mixed ground mark if casting about 50 yds +

    st abbs in the distance

    hope this helps a bit... but as always if its wet weather take great care on those rocks...
    good luck
