A bit of a pre-session post here first.I've just been at the end of the rocks hauling a couple of creels that I chucked off the rocks at the weekend.No lobster,but one of them had around 50 giant whelks in it.Never one to miss an opportunity to try new bait,I've brought some of them home and will give them a go after work this evening to see if anything is interested. (and just incase they're no,I howked a few lug on the way back as well).

Well as luck would have it,it p1shed doon the whole day,and then also p1shed doon the whole nicht.I hung off until 7 or so and then just bit the bullet and headed over the rocks.The swell was actually much bigger than I'd thought,and it's not usually the best for the red cod in these parts when that happens.I tried the wulks on their own,and then tipping the lug with them while fishing another rod with lug only.A couple of wee knocks and then a take on the tipped lug which turned out to be a flounder,and that was it.Back hame again at 9.

Large wulk.



Homeless large wulk.



Fishing area.Note specialised wulk opener beside the box.




The result of all that effort.The morn's creel bait.

Quality...i like the welk opener!! Looks like a nice mark in the pictures. Shame about the lack of fish, it is pretty crap at the moment. Weather looks worse for the weekend, wind and rain from the south east. Well into June before things pick up by the looks of it!!

its cool m8 ,i never got there till after 8 and the constant rain made me look for a more sheltered area .i did go around to cellardyke and i did see a bloke walk past when i was reversing the car (blue escort)that wasnt you was it ???red sleeved coat ,jeans???

i eventually went back to piteweem ,sat under the brolly for the best part of 3 hours and the rain never eased of at all and i blanked :)and to be honest i didnt give the rods enough attention eg change bait recast or even watch the rods enough .

and i am generally ****ed of with myself thats the last 3 trips its rained and ive not been prepared for it .

No,I was the big soggy green thing.There was another guy wandering about the rock ends though hauling a few creels,he had a bit of red aboot his jaickit. Pittenweem can be a bit dour when there's an easterly lift on the water.You may have noticed that it causes an underswell from the pier which seems to push the fish further out.There's a flat bottom about 100yards out from the very SE corner of the breakwater,slightly right of the May Island as you look towards it that often has fish when there's none closer in.

A wee bit Ade,much depending on the weather of course.As mentioned to Mark there,almost the opposite applies for the summer fish than the winter.By that I just mean the less swell the better in summer,and the clearer the water the better too.In this area,(and I'm not suggesting anywhere else),a sea like a clear millpond with a 5m + high tide at around 9pm to 11pm will give best results 90% of the time.And for low water marks a good sized spring tide with full out between 8pm and 10pm so that you can fish the 'turn' also seems to work best.
