Hello Sharpie,
i think there is still plenty of mackerel getting caught from Scapa pier and as for as I know Hoxa head is fishing well as usual. Sea trout fishing is starting to get going also - just look for any beach with some weed cover. Mackerel belly and bubble float works well as does worms and flies if you are a purist!
