We used to fish the Mull Of Gallaway every year and we got chatting to a lad who was there fishing for Tope as he had some success the previous year there. One evening we were fishing for Pollock on the western side when this same lad came down to catch some Coalies for bait as he prefered them to Mackeral which were in large numbers in the Luce Bay side at the time. He was casting out with feathers on and catching coalies then shouted us over. While we were there you could see the Tope following his hooked fish in and they were taking them of his hooks. Unfortunately for him that was the only night he never had his wire traces with him and the wind blew up for the rest of the week.
