    We returned yesterday from three days in the cod mecca that is north east scotland , G J W , HARRYCOD and myself booked a
    nice cottage in Johnshaven a village a few miles north of Arbroath , our first session took us to Tangle Ha a mark a couple of miles north of ST CYRUS where we had a couple of fish each best around 3.5 lb it was chucking it down with rain and small bits
    of weed became a problem , in GJW case it was polly bags he landed more than a Tescos Superstore would have got through
    in a day , OH how he laughed !!!!!!! :laugh: , The following day took us to Johnshaven breakwater and what a good mark that is
    we had plenty of cod up to 7lb 9 oz , thanks to Harrycod , Garry took one of 7lb 7oz , my best going just short of 6lb , we had several cod between 5 and 6lb , we then moved onto the blow hole at Usan Mains where we took 15 cod best 6lb , Saturday
    took us to Elephant Rock near Boddin point where again we had a good session with several nice fish , On Sunday we met up
    with a forum member Tangle Jock and his son Christopher at Boddin point , and what a nice experience that was :yes: , we settled for the same mark we had fished the day before , we had a really good day Gary landed the best fish of 6lb 12 oz we had
    several other good fish Dave managed to bag himself a cod and has a new mark to fish , all to soon it was time to head back home
    it was a foul night to drive home but we had some great memories to spur us on, roll on the next time , Gary and Harry no doubt will be posting some pictures :yes:

    We couldnt get our usual cottage just outside of arbroath , but most of our fishing is done a few miles north of Arbroath apart
    from Vicky Park and occasionally Arbroath pier

    Cod Fishing In Arbroath

    What a weekend , got the call on tuesday, do you fancy a run up to scotland,
    couldnt get my gear packed fast enough, :yes:

    Garry and Alan picked me up 9-30am thursday, the forecast couldn have been much better,
    a nice big south easterly was blowing and a good swell comeing in to the Arbroath coast,it was late afternoon and dark when we got there after a long wet run north,

    we unpacked at our cottage , made some grub up for our late tea then hit the beach at Tangle ha,
    i must than Garry and Alan for inviting me to join them , great mates to have :yes:

    first cast and i was into a fish the tide was an hour into the flood and a big sea was breaking on the reef 200yds off the beach,

    and then one for Alan

    and one for Garryafter he had cleared the sea of plastic bags :whistle:
    [​IMG]
    we had another couple of fish from there then it was back to the cottage,
    a can of beer and bed ,
    it had been a long day and i was knackred, Alan was ready for bed as well, he is getting on a bit :tired: next day we looked at gouden but it was a bit to tight to squeeze in so we opted for Johnshaven,
    what a result it was a fish a cast for about four hours of the flood then it went a bit quiet,
