Hello all, Just returned from visiting friends on the Isle of Skye.. Of course I put some fishing gear in and managed a few sessions on that magical Island.. I caught loads of Spurs, seems certain venues were littered with them, tried fishing for Tope but every bait I put on the bottom was snaffled by the ever hungry Spurdogs after pulling 17 up from a 100ft of water I decided enough was enough and a Tope had fat chance of getting to the bait with so many Spurdogs sniffing about.. It was good sport and most fish were between 4-8lb and they give a fair battle on standard beach gear... Next trip I decided to change venue and have a go at the Pollack, the first hour was slow so decided to put a bait down on the bottom, after after a few minutes the rod tip started knocking and wound in a small ling ended up with 3 Ling and a Cuckoo Wrasse, then the pollack decided to put in an appearance , suddenly like someone flicking a light switch the Pollack came on the feed, they were nailing everything that was cast at them, Most were good fish again between 4 - 8lb and lost a couple of good fish.. The Island has so much potential and most of the coastline I think will have struggled to see another angler, apart from the more popular venues but even them are not as popular as some of the venues back here.. It certainly is a great place, sort of magical with fantastic scenery, its hard to keep your eyes on the road ahead with the towering mountains and Lochs and wildlife all around.. Found these big mussle whilst fishing so collected a bucket full for winter bait.. Whilst fishing Neist Point I came across a couple of Basking Sharks swimming just along side the rocks and also spotted Minke Whales and Dolphins what a super place to waste your time... I managed to catch the Sharks on Video... Hope this works.. Tightlines.. Gary.
