Went over to Millport today, and totally blanked! Is there NO FISH! :blink:

I tried every bit of tackle i had from spinners, lures, feathers, short casts, long casts, even tried baiting with sandeels, rags.....

I gave up and came home in a bad mood and empty handed...:giveup:

The only decent thing was the weather! :clap3:

I would have thought the Mackies would be back by this time of year. Last year i couldnt stop catching them at Millport. Might have to try some other locations, i might head up to Greenock soon. Im heading down to try the Solway this weekend. I might try give a charter a try............ I just want a fish......

i would grab a mackerel or two from supermarket and try that mate theres a load of dugs out in the clyde and they can call time on blanks ,pollack and saithe like it on a baited feather i would give ardrossan and portencross a go before traveling
i think your using spinning gear ? id try troons ballast bank just keep yer lure /sandeel moving or lose it on rocks though or the rocks off ardrossan pier a jelly at these spots could get you a pollack or saithe .
if traveling id vissit kintyre :secret:

Yeah man, last year i was reeling mackies in....even caught myself a Coalie and a Wrasse....but at that time i had no idea what they were....:blink:

Some good spots on the rocks, just pasted the pier were the big trawler works from..... but have to admit not had the courage to try anywhere else yet.

However, off to try the Solway today...about to leave, got a full weekend down there for a wedding, but shhhhhhhh, i'll get a few hours in! oh its not my wedding......im just best man!! :secret:
