It may or may not be of interest but I had a wander down to Bervie beach about 18:30 while waiting for my chinese and saw a few lads spinning towards the left of the beach. They said they were after Sea Trout and as they said that two jumped at the same time about 20 meters out! I have never seen this before and have not heard of Sea Trout from Bervie. I only had 15 mins but saw at least half a dozen leap out. One of the young lads also claimed he had a 15lb salmon last night on his lure - not sure I believed him but good luck to him if it was true!

:g: aye, they are there

but not in the numbers they use to be in years gone by, when king gorge the 5th (me thinks) gave inverberive a royal charter and the locals are aloud to take salmon and sea trout with out permits, some what abused by the berive fly method ( 6, 3/0 trebles on one cast with beach caster and 6 oz of lead, striped through the water) tu,tu, :nonono:

but a spinner or fly will get you one, if your lucky and put in the hours at dawn and dusk

we were having a match up that way one day and when i saw them jumping i borrowed a wee spinning outfit off bruiser and hooked 3 in a short space of time .couldnt work out why they were coming off til i looked at the hooks on the lure ,points off the lot of them !
a mate also told me he saw an old local bloke run down the beach and grab a salmon around 8lb that was washed up on a big wave one day,and it may be hard to beleive ,but some of the biggest salmon caught in scotland once came out of there.i think if you check the records there were 3 fish over 50lb way back in the 20,s or 30,s.

King of Scots, David II, after local fishermen came to his rescue when his ship was wrecked on the Mearns coastline. The Royal decree he granted in 1342 gave villagers the right to "tak reid fish" - salmon - from the mouth of the River Bervie.

I often have a wander along Bervie and I have found a few good sized cod washed up there before (certainly bigger than I have caught from the beach!) but in no state to take home for the pot. It was good to see the trout jumping there and if there are any left this week I might have a wander down with a spinning rod.......

i'm not sure what it is about bervie but i've heard over the years that during a big sea virtually every species of fish(some unheard of on rod and line from beach guys) that frequent the east coast get washed up there! often still alive! never heard this of any other venue on our coast.
2 or 3 species of ray ,turbot ,brill,megrim,sole and various other things ahve all appeared on that beach at some point .makes me wonder if its worth a go at night at this time of year with big fish baits for a ray.
cheers rab
