after a decent session at etive i decided to try a mark a few of us have been looking at for a while after a drive along a single track road for about 20 miles which can only be described as scenic and a little scary i picked a mark that looked as good as any and got set up,and yes you guessed it it started raining as soon as the tide turned the thornbacks came on ,it started off with one of about 9lbs and then 5lbs maybe 2lbs and then a postage stamp 10ozs maybe then right on cue the doggies arrived only managed to get two up the rocks as they were letting the bait go as they came in,and then since i had only had 3 hours kip at etive i fell asleep in my floaty woke up to hear my abu screaming away ,and after dragging the biggest fish in the world out of half a dozen snags it turned out to be a 2lbs strap and thats being kind,after that the weather started to get fresh so decided to head for home i had struggled to get a thornie this year and got four in one day in broad daylight apart from the weather a very good place to spend a flood tide well worth the effort will be going back sorry about the photos they were taken on my mobile with a dodgy battery the coke tin is there to try and give some scale but i dont think it works all that well i didnt mention the bait was mackies and squid the thornies preferred the squid and everything else took the mackie I did throw out a string of feathers but no takers today better luck next time eh

it was three males a female ads no runs like an etive fish just loads of the rod nodding away the way the strap struggled i was expecting at least a double i had a good laugh when it broke the surface all weights are at best a guess but an educated one i hope

could be worth a try mate there are so many marks along that road that i dont think it would matter where you throw your bait to be honest:unsure:
