    shame you couldnt get on some of the marks john,thought it would be a bitt choppy.
    least you managed a few marks and fish mate.them seals were a pain when we were last up there,even burrowhead were you normally only sea the odd one had its fair share.i dnt think the fishing is anywere near as good as what it used to be,thats why nxt time im heading to the welsh coast for a change.

    We were up at the Mull about a month ago with the caravan (one of my favourite parts of the world!), and I think it was one of the wettest caravan sites I've ever been on - thought we'd have to find a friendly local with a tractor, but anyway, the trusty Skoda hauled the caravan out with no trouble (big sighs of relief).
    By the sound of it, it's been raining and blowing up there most of the time since. It was too rough to fish the west side when we were there, though there were gannets diving in the bay all the time. I didn't bottom fish at all,- don't enjoy catching dogfish, but had quite a few bass spinning with a Redgill, fished behind a bubble float. Unfortunately all small, so no bass for tea..
    Maybe I was lucky, but didn't have any trouble with seals. I do think, though, that given how numerous they are becoming, we should be fighting back a bit! They must be totally waterproof, so "SealSkins" waders might be a good way of reducing the population (can't you hear the howls from the bunny-huggers!)
