Just back from the Gulf and have a few weeks leave. I've been out of action for a while due to work commitment and keen to make a couple of days of it over on the West coast. Thing is I'm going in pretty much blind aside from threads on here, could anyone recommend a sea loch thats producing just now? Obviously there's Etive (I've no idea how that would fish this time of year) so theres a start but I'm sure it overshadows other equally great Lochs. Not after secret spots or anything just a recommendation of somewhere to try and what March may produce (as I know its always been gash for me on the East coast).

Cheers

Mate - I like the Fort William area.
You can fish from the long stay car park on the southern end of town - by the roundabout - easy fishing from the car - Doggies, Dabs, Thornbacks, Codling, Whiting, Pollack, Gurnards etc - had them all from there - lug tipped with mackerel or squid on a 2 hook flapper rig or 3/0 pennels with big fish/squid baits for slightly bigger rays/doggies.
Alternatively take the road to Mallaig and turn off for Lochaline and fish the other side of the loch - single track road - loads of marks - see what takes your fancy - never see another person fishing this side but I have had some great days catching everything above - nothing massive but loads of fish.
I normally try to get there for just before low tide and fish up and over high tide - darkness best.
Also Loch Leven not a million miles away so depending on the weather you have loads of options to go for and something will be fishable even in horrendous weather.
Scenery is great too!

No bother mate.
Have fun wherever you end up.
Also some cracking surf beaches up North as well - hardly a soul about and miles of sandy beaches.
Look up Golspie, Brora, Dunnet Bay.
Might not much more than a few Flounders but I just love fishing a surf beach.
