There was a recent revival of a thread about having a specimen fish list and and along with cascars from the south east forum who has done a regional list I have decided to set one up for Scotland too just for a bit of fun

Here are the rules:

1) No fish to be entered that were caught before todays date

2) All fish must be photographed against something that will show the relative size (A measure, Reel, Tackle box etc)

3) Wherever possible all claims must be witnessed and the witness contactable or your entry will be marked unverified.

4) Only the captor of the fish to post in this forum and myself or another mod if we need to verify it. (No chatter please, it will be removed)

5) As many details about the capture as you are prepared to give (Where caught, Bait, Weather, Tide State, Boat or beach etc)

6) The fish do not have to be caught in the scotland area but you must reside in the scotland Area

7) All entries must only be caught on rod and line

I have started a separate thread for any suggestions or additional rules that may be necessary http://www.worldseafishing.com/forums/showthread.php?p=578481#post578481
so please no posting on this one.





All of the fish below have been caught in british waters (Beach, Boat)
