Last minute decision to try Etive on Saturday. Went to Dannys at 12pm on Sat for my bait, all set up fishing by half two. Was enjoying the sun more than the fishing :) . Waited until darkness fell before I started to take it seriously as I knew this mark seems to fish better at night. Sure enough half hour after sundown bang, away went the ratchet. Missed that one, then the next two also. Fourth time lucky and I got my PB Spur. I would take a guess at about 5lb maybe 6 at a stretch. Never the less I was over the moon!!!! Another two spurs of similar size, two doggies near the 2lb mark and lots of misses topped a brilliant night again. Oh aye, baits. Tried Sandeel, squid, mackie and all combos. The fish baits were either being nibbled to hell or dissintegrating in the current, not a single fish landed on any fish combo. Whole squid held on a Pennel set up without elastic was the killer.

Ps The size is purely a guess!!! Thats a size nine Nike if that puts it in perspective

Top session well done Criag, think you might have even sold yourself short I would have said 6lb by the pic mate. Squid was the killer last time we fished the mark(looking at the ground the pic was taken on). Top notch well done on the PB

Cracking fish there mate. One of the species that have eluded me on the times when I've fished Etive. Managed Thornbacks etc, but never the Spur. One of these days though ......... er maybe :clap3:
