After weeks of planning yesterday finally came. East coast trip from Auchmithie down to east haven was the plan. The 3 hour drive was a killer so we stopped at the closest mark which was east haven at 6pm and pretty much ran onto a wee mark we wer told about and there's not even a breeze with the tide coming in. 10 mins in stevens rod bounces right out the rest, we think this is the first of 2014 but nothing. Baits stripped. 10 mins later it was the same this time it was like he hooked a speed boat goin the opposite direction then snap!!! the hook fails. I felt for him. Nothing happened for a good hour until we wer packing up to go to Auchmithie, I get a nibble, im thinking the blanks off just waiting on it taking it again. Nothing!!!! Headed up to Auchmithie cracking looking spot but very rocky and the wind was now starting to build , we gave it a go into the old harbour then on the left hand side into the bay 2 hours down its 10.30 and weve had a couple of bites from probably bait fish let's go to arbroath harbour we decide. Arbroath is packed with some serious characters, the cages and in between the cages are full. We wer like strangers walking into a small village pub but we go out to the end of the harbour talking to a couple of guys who gave us a heads up on baits and catches ect and try ther at the red railings. We couldn't get casting much further than the harbour mouth due to the wind and where we wer standing. It felt pointless. Not to be beaten we again went to east haven on the way home and it was crazy by this time. Wind was pretty much blowing us off our feet and the 6 oz weights wer no use in getting any distance or accuracy, we slogged it out in the wind and rain which felt like needles piercing ur face and finally gave in at 2.am. battered and bruised we headed on the long route home but we'll be back soon. Anyone else have better luck last night?
