fished there again today for a couple of hours had 5 small flounders and three eels .did notice that the flounders had vanished once the eels were there is this common ?anyway dont like catching eels and does anybody know if this is true once you catch an eel you wont catch anything else on that hook but eels.after a drive down the motorway went to longanet ,there were bass there but i was the only one not to catch (no rubber eels ).bait used today were macky and sqiud strips.

did take camera but batteries were gone left it switched on plugged into pc again BUGGER!!!!!!!!

marcus you do get smelts in the tay caught 1 myself not that common you should check the record
also i found once you hook a eel 90% of time only eels will come to it
best to clean your rig or put a fresh rig on
i know what what its like camera at the ready batteries dead

Hi, did the fish you caught in the Tay look like this?? I caught this in the Tay and when I brought the fish to shore it had swallowed its own tail as seen in image.
Can anyone recognise the fish species I dont think it is a Butterfish as they have black rings on there dorsal fin. The silver coloured fish is a smelt commonly known as a cucumber fish.
