Headed out with AJ and Thornback for a wee Mackerel sesh,flat calm and pretty warm ,so out we went for about a mile and were getting the odd one here and there,some nice size ones amongst them 2lb plus,tried a wee mark not far off the Bowfiddle rock and had a few cod nothing big around the pound size,ended up with around 40 Mackerel and a dozen codling,steamed in by the rocks and poddlies were coming in thick and fast and the odd bonus Mackerel thrown in .
Son was down the pier fishing after tea time so popped down to see him but all he was getting was poddlies,so a quick rig change and he was into a bonny wee Dab then a small Plaice,ended up with a few dozen poddlies ,2 Flatties and 2 Lyth to 2lb,Noticed a small Conger along side the pier so put on a larger Mackerel bait and dropped it down beside it...............straight away it wolfed it down so after a fair few minutes and a good scrap on a light spinning rod i managed to get it to the surface,not a monster but i would say it weighed 5lb ,picture on my phone so will see if i can get it on tomorrow.EVERYTHING but the Mackerel was returned to fight another day

:thumbs: Good report look forward to the photos. Fished the pier at Portknockie a couple weeks ago and got a wee cod around 2lb but that was it! Can you get access to bowfiddle rock from the shore and has anyone fished from there? Looked at it on the OS map and it seemed a good spot.:huh:

You can only get to it on the low tide,but not a place i would fish as its pretty shallow and not the safest rock to try and climb about on,very crumbly and slippy with S**t,just along from there is two rocks easy to get to and both can produce good fish,first one is called the reedfit and its directly accross from the Bow going the Cullen way,the other is the Caveadivot two along from the r/f,none should be tried if wet !!!
Spinning can get some nice Pollack,bait will get cod,Wrasse and the odd ling and loads oh Coalies.
