I’m going to be staying up in the area first week of August, and I wondered if there were any good places I could try for a mackerel or two in the general area around Aberdeen? Any tips would be appreciated as I’ve not fished in this area before, at least not in the summer months.

GOODLUCK @ enjoy.
Hi Reg, good to hear from you. I just had a tip from someone who you replied to, he’s had some from Inverbervie, which is a nice little beach to fish.

Not heard any reports, I might have a go at Usan tomorrow, I'll post if I catch any.
Catching already at Usan burnie.....had near a dozen the other night.

Arm of rock just to the right of the blowhole.....sea was boiling with bait fish, loads of Terns feeding close in.

Couldn't get much of a cast though.....place is heaving with Pots......didn't really matter, fish were right at your feet.

Just back having fished a couple of hours of the top of the tide and an hour out, just feathering for mackies had one wee one and that was all, sea is flat calm with no sign of bird activity near me at all.

Where did you try......Usan ?

Did better than me with a small one !
Tried the cliffs late this morning.....nothing. Thought there'd be a few around....there were certainly plenty around Usan on Monday night.
Sea was pretty calm on Monday too.

Gave up after a couple of hours....went to Elliot, picked up a few flatties.

Yes I was at Usan, I shall wait for a bit of surf, I find these flat seas are pretty poor for any type of fishing, don't need a raging storm like we like for the winter Cod, but a foot or so of surf seems to stir up the food and the fish. I have had some quality fish from Elliot in the past, down by the golf course end.

Thanks for the tips. I’ll head up there when I’m on holiday in the area first week of August.
