Could the amount of rain over the past few weeks be having an effect? must have been a fair amount of freshwater dumped into the lochs recently that might be putting the fish off or causing them to move further down the loch.....?

Fished loch long for 25 years. Every other year other than this one, by
August ive always had hundreds of good sized mackeral.
This year after 5 visits ive caught 7 Mackeral of decent size.
So i wouldnt waste your time with Loch Long.

Regards

James
