Fished a couple of marks near to Portlethen last night (12th Nov). First trip in over two years - Got there a bit early and the mark I wanted to fish was still covered so headed south to the higher rocks caught 1 fish just around 2 pounds put it back, by this time the tide had dropped so i moved back round to where I wanted to be and what a place it was. I had 4 fish biggest just over 4lb, my mate had 5 fish with his biggest 4.5lb. Fishing was amazing the whole way down the tide we had bite after bite and not just the little plucks, there were times when the rod was wrenched from the rest. Fishing really took off about an hour before low water, unfortunately the level of water was so low that the tops of the kelp beds were exposed making it very hard to land any fish. We both agreed that we landed only a quarter of what we actualy hooked and I lost one of good size just at my feet- but thats fishing - oh and it bloody snowed all night which made the rocks really slippery. Bait was just lug and crab - one thing i did notice was the amount of fish that had small edible peelers in their mouths and stomachs.
