    Friday saw 6 of us travel upto Arbroath in 3 cars, it wasnt long before the os map was out in the cottage with possible marks being scrutinised.

    first mark for me and danny was deals head where we managed 4 mops with lee and his dad brocky heading to bodin where they had 3 mops.



    Saturday saw us all up and after a breakfast in morrisons the 6 of us went to windy hill farm where we all spread out, this mark is very deep water and you need alot of line on your reels to fish here, this spot only produced billet but they did go to 2.5lb.

    after dark we headed back to deals head as we knew there was fish there and got 4 mops and a 5.8lber which put me in the running for the £30 heaviest fish pot that we do, the other mark fished that night was bodin again which produced more fish upto 4lb

    Sunday we all headed out to different marks which included aucmithie, rummness, ethie village, viccy park and deals head, we all had fish with lee getting 2 on the same pennel and pete getting a mop and a nanny lobster on the same pennel. (lee has these photos) pete also pulled in a 2.5lb wrasse. monday came with a big sea on so expectations were high, 3 of us fished east haven and 3 went to bodin, lee lost a fish of a life time snapping his 60lb snood, john lost a pig snagging him up but again we all had fish, last chuck of the holiday i winkled out a 6.5lber :happy: money in the bag :wink:
