We'll be lucky to get 6 cars in there, it's more of a lay-by.
I'll phone the golf club this week & ask them. Shouldn't be a problem though, as any mag article i've read about elliot says to park at the golf club.

There is plenty of parking on the other side of the road from the railway bridge and the golf course car park is pretty big too. I am on holiday that week so will probably pop down and visit my folks at the same time.
Never fished the beach in all the years I spent in Arbroath but from what I have been told the stretch to the south of the river is better but someone may correct me on that.

Em bait wise lug, mackeral, maddies and crab is my advise crab or maddies for the bass. Your ok parking in the golf course carpark keep driving past it towards the greenkeepers sheds and theirs a crossing over the railway, please take care as this could be the end of that crossing if someone abuses it. For this meet can I make a suggestion, everyone fishes with lightish rigs and basstype rods to maximise the fun side of flounder and turbot fishing. Rigs wise three hooks flapping 10lb snoods 20lb main bodys and 1 to 2oz waits with between size 2 n 4 hooks.

Thanks Chris.
I don't think many of us have fished Elliot before.
Looks like i'm tying up a pile of lighter rigs for this one, as the lightest i have is 15lb snood & 60lb main.

Sorry folks cant make it - got a tope trip that day :schmoll:
I have fished it a couple of times and had about a dozen flounders and a small bass - I would suggest s/z 2 hooks (Aberdeens or other thin wire) , 3 hook flapper with beads on the bottom 2 hooks , rag , lug and herring have all caught fish.
If fishing 2 rods - throw one far out and one close in.
Good luck :)

Just read an old article bout Elliot beach that i kept from an old tsf mag (bout 2yrs old maybe). Was by Alan combe, he stressed that most of the flatties there take a moving bait and fishing light if possible is preferred.
He reckons try 30yds at first, then edge the cast in now and then to alert the fish. Cast further if required until fish are located. Also suggests different baits on each hook at first to see whats preferred on the day.
Sounds good advice to me...... cheers Alan
