Only ever fished of the pier. There was no need to go anywere else and my bigest fish believe it or not was a 5lb saith lol many years ago. nowadays I would head towards the Colintraive area of the island you will pick up pollock there on jellyworms ect.

You could try the Kilchattan Bay area {search on google} there is a bit of a stone pier which you should be ok fishing from it's sandy beaches round that side...other than that there is very little round the south of the island in terms of a road so you might have to do a bit of walking to access the shore...good luck

Never fished the area,is the beach ur talking about called glencallum bay?Ive been past there on a boat,think it would be quite a trek,never herd of anyone fishing there. If you dont have much luck in the sea you could always try the lochs for trout,loch fad has some big pike aswel!

Sorry folks im wrong its not the south as I was led to believe its the west directly across from the little island. The beach is in a small bay and ther is a rocky point called the (point) on google earth. Is that more familiar?

Right first of all you said that your going to be on the west side of the island here then that means your looking out at the island of Inchmarnock and that is not even close to any of the areas mentioned in this thread...it's a fairly remote area round that side it looks out onto the western Kyles of Bute....weather wise wind and tides can be a bit wild....I know exactly the beach and rocky point you've mentioned....if you ask you will get plenty advice from the folks in the cabin or anyone around the little village hall....if you can stop at the tackle shop opposite the ferry terminal one of the guys in there will help you.......there really is only 1 road round the island the A844 and it starts and ends at Port Bannatyne which is towards the northern end of Bute just 2 miles from the town centre you could also try the pier there at the marina....that roads a bit of a bugger to drive on so be careful and good luck....

As an extra there was a couple of fools fishing at the ferry terminal earlier on today....they both had said they caught a couple of small fish but weren't certain if it was pollock or codling....

Much appreciated for the advice. I was shown the wrong spot on a map and when I googled the cabin it was in a totally different place. Ooops. Well ill get a couple of days fishing on this mark over that week and hopefully have a decent report to post. Thanks again lads. Cheers.
