Hi I'm through in Dundee for a meeting today and fancy having a cast at the said mark was just wondering what species would I be likely to catch and any specific places to fish I'm not asking for secret places just a point in the right direction as it will be a 3 hour drive for me but I don't mind that as I always drive minimul 2 hours due to where I'm situated thanks for any advice in advance

All along the several miles of waterfront usually throws up flounder and sea trout. Fish baits and lug usually.

Only fished it twice before, both matches. Near the bridge better chance of a Codling, Flounders, eels and some wee stuff down the side.
Near the airfield mainly Flounders.
Lug tipped with mackerel or peeler crab.

Was just passing through today highland shorecaster but looked good was a fair swell on and the water was coloured actually wondered about codling and to be honest it's only 1 hour more than some marks for me and less than others

There's every chance of codling down there, you get a lot of small ones there but i have had cod up to 3lb out of there. You can get flounder,sea trout as already mentioned plaice, coalfish, smelt, silver eel along with a variety of small stuff through the year.

I was pegged there at a match last year around June time. Slight breeze with a few showers, loads of flounders, mostly small.
The pegs down from me had a couple of eels, also heard of a few Pollack and odd Codling. You will catch on worm with a fish tip, but peeler crab was the top bait back then.

The weather doesn't seem to play much of a part when it comes to flukes i've caught them in all types from flat calm to rough water.

Great thing about riverside is its really accessible fish from the car safe for the kids if you want to take them and no need to hit the horizon as most of the fish
seem to lie between you and the main flow a gentle lob puts you among the fish. best flounder I have had has probably struggled to hit a 1lb but plenty to keep you fishing. Trout well now best one was just short of 4lb and it was caught later in the year and fat as a pig and was returned to grow even bigger like all my trout are.
