I got a mackerel last week off my boat in Luce bay and heard a bloke had a few off the end of the Mull spinning. Good few pollack to 4-5lb around at the moment, plus a lot of coalies. I had 28 coalies one day last week up to 2lb with most been over a pund very close in to the rocks over by Port Gill. They were coming on everything from Hokkais, to jellies and even spinners. Roll on the Tope, i think the first run of smaller male pack Tope will be in in the next fortnight or so, hopefully.

funnily enough I was down greenock yesterday just for a drive and there was a guy sitting out in his boat just tied to a mooring maybe 50yards out and he brought up a full string of mackeral, I counted 4! It can only be mackeral as there is no other really silvery fish around that jump on feathers like this. Then his mate in the boat was spinning and he brought another of the same type of fish in.

Having been fishing for 15 years and catchoing them for 15years I know mackeral when I see them so......

With the mild winter, great weather wth sunny days, water temp being quite high and this year in particular a good number of mackeral being caught all throughout the winter from different lochs Id say the mackeral are not far off from coming in.

Good sign there are a few in the clyde this early!!!
