Arrived at low tide to a steep pebble beech, put out a ground bait bag with bran and mashed sardines to try and attract the fishies. No bites for 4 hours, caught 2 crabs :( , left pi**ed off :mad: . Went to the harbour at Dundee and caught 3 more crabs :( , no bites fished the last hour of flood and 1st hour of ebb in the dark. Poor days fishing. Weather crap all day (wet & misty) Baits were frozen black lug, squid, frozen peeler and macky strips. Thought I tried everything!!

Ah well theres always next weekend!! :)

best to use fresh bait - rag or lug if you have time to dig them.
as for macky strips try to get herring fillets not whole

Guys...

I will pick up some fresh herring fillets tomorrow - and go for a late session over by Wormit, see what I can do with that.

Is it better to salt it a bit to firm it up or just use it the way it comes?

Cheers,

Shad.

best to salt the fillets in seperate newspaper.
remember to change the newspaper and resalt slighty.
