  15. Clyde sea Lochs

    Boat Angling / Angling Afloat
    Started this thread for anyone fishing the Clyde Sea Lochs from boat or shore. I know the Lochs do not fish as well as they used to due to the over fishing of yesteryear. However I would be interested to hear from anyone having any success in Striven, Holy, Fyne, Long, Goil or around Bute.
