That's my first trip to Etive finally done
Left Dundee yesterday mornin.Arrived at the loch side around 9ish
Set up at the left hand side of the church
Cast after cast using squid bluey sand ell etc fished till 11pm not a touch.So rods down and into the bivvy temperatures dropped quicky so quick cuppy and got to sleep.Woke up at 5am and the first thing I seen was 2 seals swimming about in front of me lol.So didn't have much confidence so packed up and headed to the Quarry straight through the gate spoke to a couple guys for abit of knowledge ended up setting up north of the Quarry in like an old harbour.First 5/10 casts was getting bite after bite but nothing hooking up.So changed down to a 3/0 panel rig whole squid on 1 and razer on the other cast after cast
Ended up landing 9 small Cod around the 1lb mark 3 crabs and a star fish haha
Looking foward to the next trip

Well done Jim, you were kept busy with the cod. On another day it could be different, the guys the fish Etive regular will tell you that.
What a backdrop to fish, always enjoy it up there, great report bud.
I'm sure you'll be back, you survived the cold during the night too.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers willie

Well done on you catches, a bit of friendly info helps and a switch of hook size too. Seems to be quite a number of cod getting caught over there just now. Temperatures are nowhere near summer yet, and when they do out come the midges lol.
