I counted 12 about a mile of ardrossan to seamill and a lot more looking down to Paddy's mile stone must have been about thirty and the visability wasn't that good...

They must have been prawn boats either that or the couple of cod that have been reported have alerted in the west coast fleet.

You might have to blow these up to see them.

Its was a tad blowie between the monsoon deluge's..

I would think it will be the Irish prawn boats along with the west coast Scottish ones looking for a bit of shelter from the weather in the north channel..

I was on the early ferry from Cairnryan this morning and the wind was blowing pretty strong from the East.... On that basis most of the prawn fleet is likely to be fishing on the Eastern side of the lower Clyde for shelter.... Cos it was pretty bumpy offshore.

I was just basking in the wee glow I got from the Prestwick report. Even dusted down the Clyde gear and was planning an attack on some old haunts. Then this. Oh well, back to reality with a bump. :sad:

No need to change your plans Basher, as Stevie and Stuart have pointed out, the reasons for the boats being in that area are weather related - every time the weather is like that the boats will be in that area, just on this occasion it has been noticed and mentioned.

Pretty much calm this morning and there are still more than a dozen prawn boats fishing in much the same area as the last couple of days. Suggests to me the obvious answer is that's where the best prawn fishing is just now !

No chance they'd drop their trawls while they're 'sheltering' then?:nonono:

Of course they will, they're sheltering to work as opposed to staying in the harbour and having no wages. Thing is, the boats will have been fishing in those areas every time the strong winds have been in that direction, it's normal.

Or it could tell you that the reason they are there is because it is calm - that's the idea of finding somewhere sheltered to work during iffy weather.

This Luce bay has given me loads of decent reading time lately, interesting stuff. Plus you Scots love a good old argument. Keep it up.
I think you should brush up on your geography before joining in..

Aye, it's a bugger for most jobs, my mate is a dry stane dyker, no much fun lately. Another mate is a painter - you wouldn't believe the amount of folk wanting to know when he's going to paint the outside of their house. Second thoughts, you will believe because you'll get the same.
