  3. Fort William, Loch Linnhe

    Scotland Catch Reports
    Hi, I'm going to Scotland for the first time and staying in Fort William next week. Hoping to get some fishing in on Loch Linnhe. I was wondering if there is anywhere on the Loch that is any good for some lure fishing for Pollack and other species and if there is a tackle shop nearby. Thanks

  5. Boat Oystercat 30-31/03/2018

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Good Friday - 30th Did a very long range wrecking trip; fishing was fairly slow, a dozen or so pollack, some jumbo pout and a few grey gurnard. Surprisingly we had a few pollack that still had live 3-4inch scad in their mouths; while this isn't unusual in the summer, it seems very early for...

  8. Boat Oystercat 08/10/2017

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    The forecast for the days leading up to the trip was poor; 3-4 days of high winds and a reasonable swell would have dirtied the inshore waters - a massive (nearly 13m) tide will have dirtied the offshore banks; so both bassing, breaming and ray fishing all would have been hindered. Instead, we...
  9. Boat Oystercat 17/09/2017

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    I didn't hold out a lot of hope for the first mark we fished as it was the wrong state of tide, but as we were passing anyway I stopped for 2 drifts 'just in case'; 2 drifts later, only one schoolie caught so we headed a few miles further west; here we had about a dozen more bass - a few of a...
  10. Boat Oystercat 25-26/08/2017

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    25th Really poor evenings fishing on the Oystercat; a dozen or so bass. Only 3 insize, 2 smooth hounds - one on a red gill on the drift!! A couple of hours on the reef only yielded a few dogs, hounds and huss. At least the weather conditions made it a pleasant boat ride! 26th A lovely...
  11. A hard week in Pembrokeshire

    LRF....*Light Rock Fishing*
    Just back from a week down at the in-laws in Pembrokeshire. Had gone down hoping to add to the species tally, but found the first couple of sessions a bit hard going, not least due to the weather as it was mostly chucking it down with rain or blowing a gale, or both! First session we fished the...
  12. Shore Portmuck and Blackhead

    Northern Ireland & Rep of Ireland Catch Reports
    Hi everyone, haven't posted on here in a while (since my first and last disastrous attempt at night fishing!). After a long and unfortunately fishingless winter I managed to get a couple of runs out this week on Sunday and Tuesday evening. Sunday started digging for worms at the low tide at a...
  13. Boat Oystercat 07/05/2017

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    As the boat has been out of the water for 2 weeks for antifouling etc I've been itching to get out. The forecast for the weekend was pretty poor Friday/Saturday but great for Sunday so, I put a trip together to head down to Lundy for the first time this year. We put the boat back in Saturday...
  14. Boat Oystercat 29-30/11/2016

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    As I'd taken a few days off work either side of the Cardiff Bay cod comp; so I wanted to try and cram as much fishing in as possible. I couldn't fish Monday as I had some other stuff to tie up but Tuesday and Wednesday were free! Tuesday 29th: As we only had a few people wanting to go, we opted...
  15. Shore Three pollack, two wrasse, one scourge of the sea...

    South West Catch Reports
    Had an early morning session on Sunday at a rocky shore mark. I planned to start at high tide, and fish the ebb for a couple of hours. Arrived in pitch darkness, got suited and booted and set off with just a handful of lures - I deliberately travelled light as the mark I was planning to fish is...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    Saturday 16th The forecast wasn't great; we knew we'd be penned in the bay but better a few hours out than pottering around the house doing DIY or watching TV. We boarded at 7:30am, a few drifts off the SWIGG saw us with more than enough mackerel for the day, and plenty for the table. We...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    I'm not sure how; but John Elvins seems to have the uncanny ability to pick dates out of the calendar and say 'Thats a good tide for a trip to {x}' and the weather seems to fall right; I don't know what or maybe who he sacrifices to the weather gods, but it seems to work! Saturday was proposed...

    South & West Wales Catch Reports
    At the beginning of the month Mike Thrussell Snr published a really interesting blog post titled 'Cabin Fever' I recommend anyone who hasn't already should have a read.
