Try Boarhills over the last 3hrs of the ebb tide. Can give fantastic fishing for red cod and wrasse. Its only 4 miles from St Andrews on the road to Crail. Turn left into Boarhills and carry on through the village, past a farm and the road turns into a dirt track. Keep going for 300m and there is a house on your right then a track to your left. You can drive down this track down to a field which has big carpet bails of straw in black polythene. Park your car here and hop over the electric fence. You will see a large rocky outcrop to your left. Head for here and cast near where you see the bouys for the lobster pots. Be prepared to lose lots of gear and I use lug for bait here as it is very successful.

yet another unsuccessful fishing outing in St A's went last night just on high tide and not a sniff, apart from a foot long sand eel which was a lucky snagging in the back....i think that i need to go further out to catch, anyone know anyone with a boat in St A's?:uhuh:
